Made by me

When in doubt…

… sew underwear. My sewing projects are all over the place right now and I have a hard time focusing, so I decided to make something that offers instant gratification. The cami pattern is Kwik Sew 2467 (and the same as this one). I love it even more this time, it’s such a nice classic style.

The fabric was a bear to sew however, it’s a microfiber knit that repels needles – I had a lot of problem with skipped stitches and ended up omitting the scallop hem. Maybe I should have used a microtex needle instead?

    Hallo Johanna, your cami looks really cute. For fabrics like this, I can highly recommand "Organ superstretch" needles. (
    With lycra and other microfibres those work better than jersey or microtex needles for me. Bye, Ulrike

    That is a relly cute cami. Lingerie fabrics and laces are such fun to work with.

    I feel your pain about your sewing projects being all over the place. Most of my year has been like that! Sweet little cami!

    I spent a couple oh hours today making a thread-catcher for my serger. Same problem as yours on a mini-scale,and it had me in a very rare temper tantrum. I could not find a sewing machineg needle that would go through the silky lining on my project. I settled for ‘the best I could do’ – no doubt it will soon be replaced.
