Do you recognize this camisole? The sewing pattern for this camisole is actually a slip dress that I heavily cropped. You can see the dress version here. I've had this fabric for about three years? A long time ago I bought the fabric to make a romper but I couldn't figure out the sewing pattern that I had bought. The directions were confusing so I just gave up. That failed project left me with some scraps that I wasn't quite sure what to do with. But that's a major problem with my fabric stash, I have a huge bin full of fabric that is just scraps. I don't know why but I usually don't make shirts, so I suppose tops are on my list sewing. 

I needed a camisole that is easy to throw on with anything but is also lightweight for this heat that we currently have. I love pairing blush tones with gold and denim. Well, let's be honest...I'll pair anything with gold and denim. I used to love the overly stacked wrist combinations but I'm into more minimal pieces as of now, such as this Gorjana cuff.  I think the best part though is being able to wear multiple pieces that you have created. The most satisfying part, for sure.
