I had the pleasure of testing this camisole by one of my most favorite pattern companies Patterns For Pirates. The Heart Breaker Cami (aff link) was so much fun to make I ended up making 4 of them in a week ;). I will share the others as well. The pattern comes in shirt length and length, it also has options for an X back and a flutter sleeve and it can worn forwards or backwards.
Here is the Cami with the X Back and here it is with the X Front:
Technically the pattern calls for double needle or a coverstitch, however I cheated and just used a stretch stitch with a single needle. With this dark Star Wars cotton lycra Fabric from Joanns, its not as noticeable, however it is more noticeable on other types of fabrics, such as double brushed polyester. My shirts are for personal use only, so I feel its okay. A coverstitch is currently on my wishlist….. one day.

Hi I'm Lo and I love to sew and I also love to play with my two children! I am a work at home Mom of two toddlers. I never planned on staying home with the kids, however when I was 8 and 1/2 months pregnant with my first child, Little Dude, I was unexpectedly let go from my corporate job. With a newborn and a tough job market, I decided to buy a Brother Sewing/Embroidery Machine and taught myself to sew. I would like to thank the many bloggers, youtube videos I have watched and PDF pattern designers for all their help.
With a degree in International Business from Blaise-Pascal University in France I decided to open my own business, an Etsy shop. I started making baby leg warmers and then added embroidered bodysuits. I was so busy I couldn't keep up and had to seek out third party help.
After my second child, Baby Girl, life became super busy. There is something about little girls clothes that makes them so much fun to create. I started venturing out to more articles of clothing. It has been a fun adventure.
I am learning as I go. I sometimes skip steps or take short cuts, sometimes I take a long road to get where I need to go. I don't think sewing needs to be perfect, I think it should be fun!!
