The Yellow Tail Camisole is a comfortable yet cheeky knit top that pairs perfectly with the Summercrisp Skirt or a pair of jeans. Wear it on a date for an effortlessly sexy look. Throw it on to keep cool at the gym or cozy while lazing about at home.
Make your camisole in one solid color to let the seaming details subtly spice up your outfit or have fun color blocking the triangular panels & bra-like shaping at the bust for a graphic look.
The top of the camisole & the straps are finished with fold over elastic so you don’t have to fiddle around with turning small straps. Negative ease at the bust & hips combined with subtle shaping in the triangular panels lets the pattern hug your curves while zero ease at the waist gives you a little room to breathe.
This pattern is a good jumping off point for hacking. For a less modern look, use stretch lace for the straps instead of the fold over elastic the pattern calls for. If you can’t find fold over elastic or lace to perfectly match your fabric, cuts strips of your main fabric & apply them like bias tape. Use a soft rayon jersey & lengthen the pattern into a cozy slip or saucy dress.
