Cordelia Maternity Camisole
Strappy knit top with gathered mid-section, hem band and optional bust support panel.
This pattern is suited for late maternity – trimester 2 & 3.
The Cordelia Maternity Camisole is a simple, strappy knit top that looks great made in prints as well as solid fabrics. It has been designed for wearing during the third-trimester, which is often a tricky time to dress for as most of your ‘regular’ clothes probably no longer fit. It has a bump-friendly gathered mid-section, comfortable stretch hem band, and an optional bust support panel. Wear your Cordelia camisole at pregnancy yoga, to sleep in, on its own in warmer months or as a useful layer in cooler parts of the year.
0.9m of Light-to-medium weight cotton jerseys, preferably with a lycra/elastane/spandex content
2m Fold over elastic, or 2.5m if including the optional bust support panel (0.5m of regular elastic with a 2cm / 3/4” or 2.5cm / 1” width can also be used if more support is desired for the bust support panel)
It is advised that you have a couple of completed garment projects under your belt before you give this a try, but extra tips have been included in the instructions for those who are new to working with both knit fabrics and fold over elastic (which is used to finish the top edges and form the straps). For those who are more experienced with sewing knit garments, or after making your first Cordelia camisole, you may prefer to use the single-page condensed version of the instructions which can be found at the end of instructions document.
