Ash — Pintuck Camisole
Easy summer living calls for easy summer wear, like this cute little camisole tank. For this design, we took a classic camisole shape and added a few embellishments like pintucks and a button placket to make it more special. Plus a detachable belt that ties at the waist for a flattering look.

I made a second of this one in smaller size 0/2.. the finished measurement on the bust was 34 and not 35.5 as mentioned in the size chart. So added 1/4th inch to front and back pattern pieces before cutting so I get about an inch of room. Had to do a dart as in size 4/6 and extra pintuck on both sides in front to fit. So yeah it looks nice but definitely need adjustments.
I made a size 4/6 and cami has gaping at front neckline, back neckline and fron armhole (this one i fixed by adding a dart). The fabric does not lie flat against the body both at the front and back and I am not sure what to do about it.
This pattern really helped me get more confident on my machine, I learned a lot making it. I added darts to the bust and made the straps quite short which helped with the top gaping. The partial placket I think needs some updating, it didn't come with any seam measurements and I think it should have incorporated a tower on one side. I messed it up the first time and had to come up with a hack to fix it the second time. Overall, I'm super happy with how it came out and have gotten a lot of compliments! I made it with basic quilting cotton, since I wanted something I wouldn't be too upset about possibly messing up. But when my linen comes in I will definitely be making it again! Thank you for the beautiful pattern!!
I made a size 4-6 though size chart suggested 0-2 based on the bust measurement. I paired it with purl soho city gym shorts for summer lounge set. I love the pintucks and tie belt as the design detail. I ran into a couple of issues: 1. Front arm hole was gaping (and you can see that in the model pictures too). I pinched extra fabric and sewed it into a dart and it lays better. As the other reviewer mentioned (comments on the tutorial page) - gather before putting in the binding - I think this would be a more elegant looking solution. 2. After sewing in the binding, at places the fabric came out of the binding at several places at the slightest tug while I was trying it out. Perhaps I should have used 2 step method to attach the binding or use a wider binding. I feel like its gonna happen at more places as I wash/wear this so likely I'd have to do redo the bias binding. I used 100% linen for this project. I must add I am a beginner and not that proficient at sewing.
