The Sommar Camisole is a tight-fitting top for knits with elastane. It features a built-in shelf bralette, front scoop neck and back straight neckline, or you can switch it around to have the straight neckline in front if you would like. The neck- and armbands are 1.27 cm wide and fully enclosed. You can choose hip or cropped hem length. You can also make just the bralette portion of the pattern for a bikini or yoga top.

Skill level: Adventurous beginner.

Fabric requirements:
View A (full length): 115 cm wide fabric: 0.7 – 1.6 m // 140 cm wide fabric: 0.7 – 0.9 m.
View B (cropped length): 115 cm wide fabric: 0.5 – 1.4 m // 140 cm wide fabric: 0.5 – 0.8 m.

Sizing: A – P (see sizing chart with the pictures below). 

Notions: 1.5 cm wide elastic. Choose a soft elastic (lingerie/boxer/knit elastic) for a comfortable, low-support hold. For a larger bust, or if making an athletic top, you may want to choose a wider and/or harder elastic (non-roll elastic).

PDF pattern includes: Step-by-step instructions; A4/US letter print-at-home pattern (11 pages for sizes A-K, 14 pages for sizes A-P); A0 copy shop pattern (1 sheet) // Layers: Yes // Projector file: Yes.

Fabric suggestions: This pattern is specifically made for knits with a high percentage of stretch and excellent recovery. It will not work in knits without elastane (spandex). Choose a fabric with at least 50% stretch. The top will have a different feel depending on the weight and thickness of your fabric. Choose a lower weight fabric (around 113-170 g) for a lounge camisole. Choose a mid-weight (170-255 g) for an everyday top. Choose something heavier (around 255-340 g) for a more compressive sports bra fit.
For beginners, it is recommended to use cotton with elastane, as it is more stable and easier to work with than for example, rayon. A rib knit will work, but due to its very stretchy nature, you should size down once or twice, and it will not be very supportive for larger busts. Your fabric choice will be very important in how the final garment fits you.
Any of these fibre combinations will work well: cotton/elastane, rayon/elastane, Tencel/elastane, modal/elastane, bamboo/elastane, merino/elastane.

I’m still learning to love jumpsuits and I haven’t sewn it yet but I appreciated the A0 printing!

Great customer service

Always great communication and customer service! Fast delivery and the product selection on offer is amazing and the quality is wonderful. Thankyou so much.

Amazing service

I recently emailed Maaike to ask if she would recommend this pattern being made from the chunky cotton knit and she responded promptly and gave great advice. It was so convenient to be able to have the pattern printed in A0 size too.
