The Sommar Camisole is a form-fitting top crafted exclusively for knits with elastane. This versatile garment comes with a built-in shelf bralette, a front scoop neck, and a back straight neckline, providing a sleek and flattering look with the option to switch the front scoop neck with the back straight neckline.
The arm and neck bands are thoughtfully designed to be completely enclosed and measure 1/2" wide, ensuring a polished finish to the garment.
This pattern offers two hem length options - hip or cropped. You can also make just the bralette portion of the pattern for a bikini or yoga top.
Recommended Fabric: This pattern is specifically made for knits with a high percentage of stretch and excellent recovery. It will not work on knits without elastane (spandex). Choose 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 4-6 oz.) for a lounge camisole. Choose a mid-weight (6-9 oz.) for an everyday top. Choose something heavier (around 9-12 oz.) for a more compressive, sports bra fit.

- 1/2″ (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).
