    This is the best cami pattern ever! It is my one and only “go to” pattern when I need a cami! The instructions are clear and well illustrated, I believe it’s easy enough for a beginner too! If you haven’t tried, I HIGHLY recommend it!

    This is THE cami for me. I love the neckline shaping in the front and back and the fit is very nice. Lena has a good eye for line and shape in garment patterns and her instructions are excellent.

    Sammy Cami is a semi-fitted camisole designed for flexible knits. My favorite way to wear a cami is under my suits or cardigans. Of course, one can’t limit themselves, it’s also perfect for the warmer days worn with shorts, jeans and versatile enough to be worn as a workout top.

    Sammy Cami is a multi-sized digital pattern, printed across just a few pages, tape together, cut and yields 2 pattern pieces. The instructions are clear and easy, including measurements, tips, fabric and notion suggestions.

    I started with a size 14 body and 12 armhole & neckline using an existing tank top to check sizing. As mentioned, the instructions provides measurements to use as a guide. My fabric choice was a leftover remnant from a dress I made, which is a blk/wht printed stretch knit. The pattern calls for cutting the front and back on the fold, however, I chose to cut my back with a center seam… just my preference. Again, the instructions are clear and easy, so assembly was a no-brainer and love the clear pic of the foldover elastic (“FOE”) application…. genius. I love the use of the foldover elastic, which allows for great contrast trim, and the ease factor of slipping it on and off without buttons or snap closures… total plus.

    The pattern is perfect for using up fabric remnants… seriously it hardly use any yardage.

    My all time favorite part of constructing the cami is the use of FOE for finishing the raw edges while creating the shoulder straps to the length you want. Can I say 2 snaps a twirl…lol. If you have not tried FOE, this garment is perfect for it. The great thing about FOE is you can use either side, matte or shiny and there is a plethora of colors and prints to choose from.

    Once the FOE is applied the side seams were serged and the bottom hem was ironed using stitch witchery and final stitched… Presto.


    Can I tell you I love this pattern and immediately made another one. This time I used a navy blue thin knit as well as a navy stretch lace. The pattern is sew friendly and allowed me to take Sammy Cami to the next step. This time I wanted a close fit and like the pattern states no complex fittings or adjustments. I cut both the thin knit and stretch lace simultaneously, used steam-a seam along the cut edges to anchor the lace upon the knit, machine baste stitch together and continued on following the instructions. However, Instead of sewing my seams at 1/4″, I sewed my seams at 5/8″ providing the close fit that I wanted the second time around.


    Awesome pattern that one can easily whip up a bunch in different colors and prints.
