The Tropo Maternity Camisole is form fitted, with 3 darted cup size options (A/B, C/D, and E/F) and gathering over the belly so you can wear it as a layering piece. It has an optional interior shelf bralette and 4 separate neckline views useable in either Front or Back for 16 different possible combinations!

This pattern is suited for late maternity – trimesters 2 & 3.
This pattern is designed for nursing (optional).
The Tropo Maternity Camisole is named for the troposphere – the bottom layer of the earth’s atmosphere – since it’s great on its own but perfectly suited for layering. This camisole is designed to be form fitted so you can wear it as a layering piece and has an optional interior shelf bralette that can be sewn out of fashion fabric, power mesh, or fashion fabric and power mesh together for added support.
The camisole comes in 3 cup size options: A-B, C-D and E-F. C-D and E-F are darted to accomodate a larger bust while mainting a sleek shape. Side gathers accomodate a pregnant belly.
View A is straight across the front, View B has a gentle scoop, View C has a sweetheart shape, and View D spices up the sweetheart with a sexy V strap. All views are useable for Front or Back for 16 different possible combinations!
All views can be sewn as a nursing camisole, with or without bralette, for nursing while pregnant or immediate postpartum use.
Light to midweight knits with at least 40% stretch.
Suggested fabrics include: jersey, ribbing
Optional: Power mesh for bralette
fold-over elastic (FOE)
3/4” (19 mm) elastic for bralette (optional)
