Notions: thread, 14″ invisible zipper (cut down to 12″), Sheer Fusible Tricot interfacing, black rayon lining, stay tape, lace trim (was $1.80 now $.90)
Alterations: This style requires a muslin for me. The difference between my full bust and high bust is 4″. After altering for a FBA, I did a quick muslin to find out how much the high bust would need to be taken in.
On the front band, I took a 1″ tuck on left and right side for a total of 2″.
Constructions Details: This is a very straight forward pattern to construct. I added a few details not included in the instructions. I interfaced all of the pieces because of the fabric’s loose weave.
The last thing I added was the lining.
Conclusion: I had large blocks of fabric left from the skirt. You know, pieces that are too large to throw away. This is a great pattern for using up leftover fabric. This type of camisole can work wonders in your wardrobe. Wear it alone or under a jacket. Try color blocking or a brocade for evening. I’m already working on another one with more leftover fabric.
