Claire Cami Top

Ever since I made the Claire Cami Dress for my swap partner I have wanted to use this pattern for myself. I thought the shorter tunic lenght would be a great summer top. And it is dressy enough for me to wear to work. I loved the way the dress fit me so I knew the top would fit well.

For the top I used a black and white floral linen rayon blend I picked up on clearance at JoAnn Fabric. for the coordinating trim I used a quilting panel from my stash that had quarter yard strips of various black and white prints. I love sewing and wearing this patttern. It is quick to sew and easy to wear. I think this top has an oriental look to it. I do want to sew up a dress next. I really liked the one I sent to my swap partner.
