Aspiring Designer: Laela Jeyne Patterns

Hi everyone! I'm Marisa from Laela Jeyne Patterns and I'd like to introduce the Penelope Pleated Camisole to you!
  This camisole was inspired by a J.Crew design from several seasons ago. I loved the easy, yet stylish feel of it and was dying to recreate it! It is perfect for any occasion as it can be made in fabrics as dressy as silk or charmeuse or as comfortable as batiste and rayon challis. My personal favorite is rayon challis! The top front neckline is pleated with several pleats and finished with bias tape. The middle waist is gathered with an elastic casing to give a great silhouette. The back neckline is pleated with an inverted box pleat in the center and the hem is finished with a roll hem foot on your sewing machine. The straps are spaghetti style but can be adjusted to your comfort. The hem is curved in the front and back. All of these design features come together to make a flattering yet comfortable camisole!
The instructions are loaded with full color pictures and diagrams where things get tricky. There are detailed fitting adjustment instructions and cutting lists. There is also a template to make pleating easier, since you have to do several on the front piece. The sizes are layered to make it easy when cutting out your pattern.
