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.
