Debbie Bliss’s Cabled Camisole

Admittedly I’m a little nervous/modest about posting these photos for the world to see, but here’s throwing caution to the wind.

This Cabled Camisole started as yet another impulsive yarn purchase, and I’m glad I did because I love love love this yarn.  It Cascade’s Pima Tencel.  I loved the way it knit, and I love the way it feels on my body.

So, I’m not a busty gal, and clearly this camisole would look better on someone with more cleavage, but it’s comfortable, so I’ll go bohemian with it.

Am I glad I made it.  Yes.  However, I followed the pattern the first time I made it (yes, I made it twice-arg!), and it was too short.  I’m definitely not a midriff-bearing gal after three enormous babies (last one was 11 lbs, thankyouverymuch).  Anyway, I loved the yarn, so I thought I could unstitch from the bottom and add on, but that proved too complicated, so I unraveled and started fresh early this spring.  The second camisole has better cables, so I’ll chalk it up to appreciating the learning curve.

About lionsdaughter

I like to make things, lots of things, but not all things. I love to sew, knit, embroider, take pictures, scrapbook, dye fibers, work clay in the summer, garden. I want to try weaving, spinning, and stain glass work. I have no interest in auto body, upholstery, or tanning (either working animal skin or purposefully darkening my own).
