Savannah, by Seamwork
from Colette Patterns Follow

Savannah. The word brings to mind beauty and Southern charm. On a hot summer night, the Savannah chemise is perfect for an elegant night on the town. When it's cool outside, it's the camisole you can layer with a cardigan or blouse. The glamor of Savannah lies in its versatility and ease of construction.

Depending on the fabric, this garment can be worn as loungewear, activewear, or as a layering piece for all sorts of occasions. Play with colors and prints and swap out different types of lace - you will probably come up with even more uses. Savannah pairs well with the Manila leggings found in Seamwork, Issue No. 2. This cami is easy and quick to sew, even for a novice. Since it can be used in so many different settings, you will probably want to make several. And each time you make one, it gets easier and faster.

    The lace binding was a new challenge for me, but with clear instructions it was easy enough. The bias shape hangs nicely and is quite loose and while I liked that you might want to go down a size if you are small busted like me. Make sure you buy soft lace, I got mine via the Internet and it is a bit scratchy
