Out of all the clothes I’ve made for myself over the years, this easy to sew summer camisole has to be one of my top favorites. It’s a very simple piece of clothing, but it has many things I like.
First it has to be the color. It’s a blue that is very close to green (seafoam), but very soft and fresh. My wedding dress was that same color, I love it.
Then it is the fact that is fresh, and comfortable to wear. Perfect for our very hot summers.
Then it’s the detail of the little rag flower with one of my favorite vintage buttons. It dresses up the very simple top.
Then there’s the fact that it was very easy to make (the back is almost the same as the front), very quick, and uses very little fabric. One yard of this cotton was only a bit over 4 dollars when I bought it.
I think I am going to make myself a few more of these, the only problem is that it needs an invisible zipper (which I didn’t have, but I’ll get), the one I used doesn’t look as nice as it should. You can see the instruction for making a similar one here.
These are some fabrics I bought on a clearance, I bought 3 half yards for less than 6 dollars). These were also from the same loot. They were so darn cheap I had to buy them (I needed to buy fusible fleece anyways), do you think I’d look stupid in a cami made of these fabrics? I fear I’d look like I am wearing a pillowcase, I am always hesitant about wearing prints.
