Such a fabulous cami

I made a fit test out of modal elastane and what a delightful garment. It’s such a versatile layer - either on its own or for warmth or modesty. I made one with the wider straps and it’s just perfect. Off to buy some swim fabric to make a tankini for the beach!!! I am sure that once my daughter is a teen, I will be making many many more.
