The most satisfying and inspiring part of any pattern release is seeing it made up by other people! It is so fun to see a collection of different size and shape bodies using different fabric and making different design decisions, all from the same pattern. I was fortunate to have an amazing, inspiring, creative group that tested the Tropo Camisole. Here are the gorgeous creations of those testers that were happy to have their pictures shared.
Ani says “I really love the strappy details! It’s something I’ve been seeing around and they don’t really make things in my size with those details. I didn’t realize what a simple addition they were and now I can add them to anything! (Also, the size-inclusive cup sizes!!!)” Find her on Instagram. *Ani is one of our cover models!*
Carolyn says “Camisoles are a wardrobe staple for me, and the Tropo camisole is a perfect replacement for all my store-bought camis. Wuhoo! Now I can make any color I want, to match any outfit!”
Emily says “The easy-to-use foldover elastic makes this top come together so quickly, and there is not even a need for hemming when you use a knit fabric!”
Katja says “An awesome, easy to sew basic piece for every wardrobe with nice close-fitting cut.” Find her on her blog
Kten says “I love a good camisole and the Tropo Cami was no exception. In particular this one stands out because there are so many ways to customize the neck line, which is so useful! Additionally it was a nice small patten to print out and came together quickly.” Find her on her blog and Instagram. *Kten is one of our cover models!*
Maria says “This pattern offers more than just one style or a pattern for one stage of your life. I think there are so many good options in this pattern.” Find her on Instagram.
Meg says “I appreciated the versatility of the pattern, which allowed me to customize the neckline of the pattern without too much thought on my part. While I’m capable of hacking a pattern on my own, sometimes its nice when the work is done for you.” Find her on her blog.
Patricia says “It makes for a good vest or a bit of support for nightwear.” Find her on Instagram.
Sarah says “It’s a really wonderful fit, much better than I was expecting. The high bust measurement and cup size method of fitting is so useful and means I don’t have to use a FBA. I’d love to see more patterns use this method.”
Tanja says “I never made a camisole before. For some reason I thought it would be complicated because I was using elastic, but it was a very easy project. One for sure I plan to make many of these as it can be worn also as a daily garment.” Find Tanja on her blog and Instagram.
