Pattern Description:

Keep your cool with this shaped camisole designed to fit smoothly and elegantly over a racer-back bra. Worked from the bottom up in an easy-to-master stitch pattern, the richly textured fabric skims and flatters many body types. Switch it up with a bead-stitched circular neckband worked separately, perhaps poolside? Create and adjust the feminine front gathers during the finishing process for a super-hot (but not revealing!) custom fit.
