Lotus Cami

Amy Butler's Lotus Tunic pattern has a choice of three lengths. I chose the cami length, The pattern was well written and easy to follow. The only problem I had was adding the bias around the bottom of the sleeve. It called for stitching in the ditch. I had to rip it out the first time and try again.

I used some fabric I had in my stash.

The cami length called for buttons down the back. All the other lengths have zippers.

I made covered buttons using the contrasting fabric.
Overall I'm please with the cami. Amy Butler's patterns are flattering to so many figures types. Each one I've seen on Flickr looks great! Next time I'd like to try the tunic length in some of Amy Butler's wonderful fabric.

Wow! The tunic turned out great! It looks great on you too. I love the fabric combination you used. Also, using the contrast fabric for the buttons is such a cute idea! I really want to make this top, but I don't know if I'll get around to it before the summer is over! If only there were more time in the day. :)
