I sewed this camisole for my mom for Christmas. She is similar in size and proportion to me, so I feel alright sewing for her. I made the pattern by tracing a camisole I have on top of a tracing of my t-shirt block. I blended the lines and it worked out satisfactorily. This camisole was made from 1 yard of remnant fabric. I don't remember how wide it was, but not more than 22 inches, maybe closer to 16. I had just enough to finish all the edges with a band instead of turned over hemming and to make straps. I left the front of the straps unsewn (they are pinned for the picture) and sent Mom the thread so that she could easily adjust them to her body. I tried the garment on me, since it was the first time I made the pattern, and now I am eager to make some for myself.
Hi! I live in Virginia. My mom taught me to sew. I think I started at 4 or 5 by sewing buttons onto a handkerchief, but don't trust my memory. That was a long time ago. As a teenager, I was more interested in completing projects than learning good sewing techniques. Now, I am teaching myself some things I missed. My sewing interests are in learning to make alterations to and draft patterns to fit my petite 4'11" tall, 32" chest, 45" hip body.
