Five Cami Tops For 1 Metre Fabric

When I saw this month’s fabric, I thought it would be perfect for sewing up a little camisole top for the (hopefully) warmer weather we may get soon. Here are five gorgeous cami patterns that would be a perfect match!

  1. Helen’s Closet Orchard Top (and dress)

An AMAZING free pattern (available when you sign up to the Helen’s Closet newsletter), the Orchard Top is an effortless addition to any wardrobe. It features spaghetti straps and a dartless a-line silhouette. A perfect choice for summer, but equally great layered over a t-shirt or turtleneck when it’s cooler.

2. Tammy Handmade Etty Camisole 

The Etty Camisole has a stylish scalloped detail with a relaxed and comfortable fit. The slip-on style top is perfect for beginners and features  a statement neckline and thin straps for a chic look. Oh, and the best part…it’s yet another FREE pattern!

3. Maven Patterns Simone Set

This camisole top and trouser set from Maven is perfect for creating a glamorous faux jumpsuit, a luxe loungewear set or separates to mix and match with your other makes. The camisole has two strap options: double rouleau straps or 2 cm wide straps, and it was the double rouleau detail that really caught my eye – so beautiful! 

4. Chalk & Notch Victory Tank

The Victory Tank has a gorgeous swing shape with two views. View A has a simple scoop front neckline and finishes mid-hip, but if you fancy something a little different, View B is for you! It has v-shaped straps on the front neckline and a v-shaped cut out in the back with a cropped length. 

5. True Bias Ogden Cami

The Ogden Cami is a simple blouse with a soft V-neck at both the centre front and centre back, and delicate spaghetti straps (sizes 0 – 18) or 3/4″ wide straps (sizes 14 – 30). The neckline and armholes are finished with a partial lining for a beautiful, high end finish. It is an incredibly popular pattern in the sewing community, achieving almost cult status!
