Camisole Preview

I'm much too fried to post the pattern for this camisole tonight so you'll have to wait a day or two.

Click on it for a big stupid picture showing the skull & crossbones business knitted into the front.

It's knitted in cotton/ramie yarn recycled from a thrift store sweater. It's meant to be something you wear over T-shirts & blouses, since it's a bit too thick & sweaty to be worn by itself.

I stole the fit from 1940-50's tops so there's some kind of complicated short-row business making the front taller than the back and the side seams are shaped.

It's uncerimoniously flopped onto a 1940's battered old dressmaker's dummy. I've been intending for something like 15 years to draft a form to zip over it so it's actually my size. I'll get to it. Don't rush me!

Yup. That's about it.

Ooooooh, I love the camisole. Very cute and summery, in a rock chick sort of way. Can't wait to peek at the pattern. LOL! Have a great evening...

That's fantastic!! We need a pic of you wearing it - and extra points for recycling.

When I'm looking less filthy from work I'll model it. I need another couple pictures anyhow.

Clara Bow & Louise Brooks ruled. Somewhere in this mess I've got a video of Pandora's Box that I haven't watched in a while.

I just had to comment... The cami is gorgeous. Can't wait for the pattern.

Also I am not alone in singing Severina from the Mission every time I visit your blog.

And one more thing I was lucky enough to work on both the Clara Bow and Louise Brooks documentaries that you guys watched the other night. Let me know if you all might want some viewing copies as I can probably get some over to you from the production company where I used to work.

I was thinking along the lines of red or burgundy intarsia on a very basic black tank top, but the barby-heart could also work as a texture like you've done here with the camisole... which is very nice. I'll have to think about it while I save my pennies for yarn.
