Pattern for sewing a camisole top

I don’t own many summer tops my last one I bought 2012 in Barcelona but as the temperatures doesn’t start to fall in the next few days. I needed to sew a new top and developed a pattern for a camisole top based on my circle skirt. What I love the most about the top is the fall of the fabric and the causal look. Personally, I would recommend wearing it at the beach or when it isn’t too windy because otherwise your top could fly up and then you present your underwear a far too big audience…

The measurements on the instruction are for a size 34-38 I recommend adding 2  cm per size if you need the pattern a little larger. I constructed the pattern without a French curve so you can also draw the pattern with a ruler at home. Nonetheless it’s easier to draw the neckline and armholes with a French curve.

Step-by-step tutorial for a camisole pattern development:

Draw a saquare and a rectangle

First you need to draw a square in 65 cm x 65 cm. Thereafter you draw a rectangle into the upper-right corner with 16,5 cm x 12,5 cm.

Then you draw a curve between to two edge points of the rectangle.

Thereafter you take a set square and draw a 12,5 cm and 6 cm high edge into your curve. If you added 2 cm to your pattern you also need to do that here. You also draw the curve of the top in 65 cm from the upper right corner.

Afterwards you draw a line from the left side of the upper rectangle to the new set square point and from the center of your neck to the point. You’ll also need a 90 cm x 2 cm piece of fabric for the straps and a 80 cm x 4 cm piece for your neckline.
