this camisole with a drawstring waist was made using vintage simplicity pattern number 6464 from 1974. the pattern is meant to include rick rack or eyelet trim, but i left it out. i made the casing for the drawstring using some of the same fabric instead of the bias tape it called for, (i didn’t have any of the right size/color) and also made the drawstring out of some gray fabric. the fabric and shirt is very comfortable. thanks for looking!
less than a yard of cotton swiss dot floral (purple, green yellow, and brown on white), gray fabric for drawstring, 2 hook and eye sets, and 3 vintage charcoal gray buttons.
