Square Camisole

I made this square camisole a while ago and have the benfit of having worn it a few times now. One thing I would do differently is make a fastening at the side. Or make the back in two parts and make an opening at the back of this square camisole. It’s a bit trickly to get on and off. Otherwise I LOVE it.

You need: –

  • to make a pattern – see below – my pieces were around 50 cms x 50 cms square – UK dress size 10
  • fabric
  • matching colour thread
  • sewing scissors
  • sewing machine
  • pins

Cut your pattern from your fabric. The back and the front are initially the same size.

Pin darts and top hem

Fold over top end of camisole and make a hem. Ten centimetres down from the top end of your camisole fold and pin your darts, which are between 2 – 3 centimtres wide depending on how busty you are. Sew.

Pin and sew straps and lower hem

Pin and sew straps in place. The nice thing about this top is you can make wider straps so you can wear it with a bra. You might have to fit your square camisole top to get the right spot for your straps. Even better, get someone else to pin the straps for you.

Finally hem the bottom of your square camisole. I had to take mine in slightly at the top. And I had to re-do the fold at the front near my arms so it folded nicely next to my straps.

Have a great week.

Greenie.
