I think we've had a pretty decent lingerie month for June 2010. There have been patterns and tutorials for a couple of different cuts of panties. There's been bra-making, swimsuit making, mini-bloomers, baby doll nighties and now...
I've saved the best for last. Or at least my favourite for last. I love tank tops - or their "lingerie-ish" name - camisoles.
I made this pretty purple one tonight. Terry and the kids are at the park, so I had to take the pictures using the webcam. Not the best quality, but those of you who know me see me in this fashion every day anyway :)
I love the purple gingham ribbon I placed along the top edge. So cute!
I made some pants out of this knit over a year ago and a top to match, but I don't really like the top. And worn together the outfit is hideous. I think this little cami will make the outfit much better. Because I love those pants. They fit really nice and they are comfy. I'll take a photo of me in the entire outfit when I wear it next for you to see.
It's also a really great little cami to wear underneath a sweater or vest. But if you know me, I'll just wear it as is with a pair of pants or shorts.
If anyone would like the pattern for a size large cami, let me know. I'll figure out a way to scan it and post it up with a tutorial. It's only one pattern piece! Awesome. It only took me a half hour to make this top. Yay!
I'm wish my Canadian friends a Happy Canada Day tomorrow. Have a great time, enjoy the BBQ and fireworks!
I think we're going to the Canadian Mint for a tour and BBQ tomorrow. A very Canadian-type activity for a very Canadian-type day!
