Clara sewing pattern

I had a Sewing Sunday & stitched up this version of the Clara pattern in the lower back style.

The Clara pattern includes 2 back styles. Higher for more support, and the lower back in the classic scoop back style which is seen everywhere at the moment!

This pattern includes sizes XS to 3XL Women`s. The pattern is fully lined with an extra layer of lining in the top section for removable cups.

Edges are finished in the basic swimwear turnover hem. This pattern wont take long for experienced sewers to stitch up!

Sewing level – I would suggest intermediate. For those with  some experience in sewing stretch fabrics.  The pattern instructions are include detailed pictures /drawings & clear step by step sewing instructions.

This pattern can be sewn on the most basic sewing machine using a zig zag stitch. If you have an overlocker / serger & maybe a cover stitch machine-well you will make a very professional version of this pattern! For more info click the picture below or visit our shop page.
