It's a slip! It's a nightie! It's a dress! It's a top!
This glam design makes a beautiful full slip or hip length cami. Slips and cami's are like instant linings. They add opacity and they make garments slide over the figure so that body rolls don't show, instead of your clothes clinging.
Pattern includes separate cup pattern pieces for cup sizes C, D, E, F, and G, each sized to fit 1X to 6X.
Elastic in back waist seam for comfort and easy fit.
The slip or cami can be trimmed with lace or can be hemmed at the upper or lower edges for a more tailored look.
Make this design in gorgeous natural fiber fabrics like silk, lightweight cottons, or handkerchief linen. OR use synthetic equivalents. OR make it in lightweight knits, too!
Complete sizing, fitting, and construction instructions are included with the pattern.
I regret that I cannot offer individual sewing assistance.
