Very cute! You're not kidding about the original being a little low in the front!! Nice top.

Very attractive camisole. The pattern has some interesting details -- I bet the dress length is quite nice, too.

Darling cammy- thanks for the support heads up! With teens as "rack gifted" as mine. full-fledged bra cups might be a good idea for them!

Nice job! Did you serge the clear elastic on the upper edges, turn and topstich?

For the elastic in the straps, I serged the elastic to the seam of the strap, along the full length, so that when it was turned the elastic kind of filled the narrow tube of the strap. As for the top edge, I serged the elastic to the top (pretty much 1-1 ratio for length) as I was sewing the shelf bra and camisole together along the top edge. I turned and topstitched (cover stitch) which further secured the elastic, so it's hidden completely inside. Hope this makes sense.

Oooh la la! Love the top! I just pulled that Burda issue out, thanks to your inspiration, and hope to make that top for one of my next projects. I love the lines. So cute. Thanks, Kay!

Very nice top Kay. I like your modifications to make it more comfortable. I will save your review for future reference. Thank you.
