We're really excited to announce that our new pattern for Crafty Sew & So, the Pintuck Cami is now available as a printed paper pattern and PDF download!


Like all Crafty patterns, the Pintuck Cami is designed to be a quick and easy make for beginner sewists and those with more experience too.  

The pattern is designed for sizes XS to XL - Bust 82cm-126cm/ 32"-49 1/2"and is drafted for a height of 5' 6" and a “C” bust cup. 


The Pintuck Cami pattern features neat pin-tucks at the front neckline and a flowing comfortable fit at the waist and hips.  The neckline is finished with a self-fabric facing and topstitching, both techniques are explained in full on our blog. Over the next few weeks we will be featuring a step-by step sew along to help you sew your Pintuck Cami and tackle any trickier steps.

The Pintuck Cami is ideal as nightwear, paired with either our Frill Sleep Shorts or our PJ Bottoms. You can make it in a cool cotton fabric, which is perfect for beginners, or choose a slinky satin or viscose if you're a bit more experienced with dressmaking.  Or in the right fabric, it will also look great as a day or evening wear top when teamed with a cardigan or little jacket for cooler days. 


Here’s a little taster of how they made theirs...
