Crystal Cove, how sweet she is.

Standard

A simple but stylish cami top, WITH shape, how l do love this.  The Crystal Cove cami is a recent test garment designed by Kennis of Itch to Stitch.

This simple styled top has definition at the waist line, side darts give a really feminine shape which l really like, no looking pregnant and believe me you don’t want this nan looking like she is pregnant.  Yes this gorgeous top is suitable for all ages even we older ladies who chase little ones.

Such a quick sew you can make up in nap time and with instructions and pattern pieces for different cup sizes you have a simple stylish top in no time. My fabric for my casual top is a soft draping crepe.

With an elegant overlay on the back the cami is suitable for casual or for a more formal occasion, make a statement with the spaghetti straps, luckily l had a bra near in colour so l didn’t even mind the little peak of the bra strap. The hem is rolled hemmed which l did on my overlocker  (serger), so easy and quick to do, no need to worry about that curved hem as the finish is smooth and even and QUICK.

Choosing your fabric can take you from casual to more formal and even though it is currently winter for me l can layer and still wear out for date night and in an embroidered voile fabric it shines as formal wear.

For the finish on my date night Crystal Cami l simply overlocked the hem then folded and hemmed, another quick neat finish.

Honestly once you make one you don’t need to look at the instructions again, it’s that quick and easy to sew.  The longest part of the process of making my date night Cami was threading my dreaded overlocker when l didn’t realise that my thread had run out, argh.
