While tinkering around in my fabric/garment wiki (after months of absence – the busy fall is almost over!), I noticed that there are not all that many examples of camisoles in the list of creations on the Burda site. For a garment that would seem to me to be relatively easy to make, given its often relatively loose fit, I was a little surprised. Also, looking around on the web, although I found some free patterns, with a few exceptions these aren’t particularly pretty or exciting.

I just wanted to encourage BurdaStyle members to turn their talents to this somewhat neglected area and see what our community comes up with! :)

    Hmm, considering I don’t have an obliging friend to model for me I don’t think so. My husband would be quite cross to see pictures of me in my undies splashed across the site!

      Several of my lingerie creations are shown laid out flat, and at least one is shown worn over existing clothes …. looks odd, but it does showcase the garment. I would hate to think that the problems of modeling them were the reason they weren’t being shown…

    I totally agree Gedwoods. I live in North Queensland and for most of the year I wear camisole style tops as they are much cooler than any other style. Nice patterns however, are very hard to come by. I recently bought Simplicity 2650 but I wanted to make it into a dress first! A cami is on my to do list. If anyone knows of any nice patterns I’d be keen to see them.

    With the addition of sew4my3’s contribution, there are now seven free patterns referenced on my wiki site . Now there is no excuse not to get busy making some! :D

    I have examples of camisoles/ lingerie in my projects and I laid them out flat to photograph them. I love making slips and camisoles as they are so easy to make – even without an overlocker/ serger and you can trim them with lace/ ribbons/ bows to make unique undergarments — to match outerwear !

    gedwoods, is it maybe a terminology problem? There might be a bunch here but are they being called “tank tops” or “vests” instead of “camisoles”?

      You may be right. I’ll check it out.

    I made a camisole using the top from the Jane pattern. You could adapt the Bambi pattern as well.
