Here’s my very first Camber Set Tee. For this version, I added a few inches to the length. I’m so used to tunic style tops that I automatically think I want a top to be longer. I wore it that way for a few months, but the funny thing is that I recently chopped off about 5 or 6 inches. I wanted to wear it with a skirt one day and I didn’t have any short tops that sit closer to the waistline. This is the luxury of sewing. When your personal style changes, you can change the garment the match.
One detail on the Camber that I like is the opportunity to use a contrast yoke lining and neck binding. I used some Liberty of London Stanley, which no one will ever see, but always makes me smile. Especially since this Camber appears to be so plain. Sewing secret details makes me happy.
The Chambray Union Stretch is so perfect for a woven tee pattern. Super comfy with a slightly weighty feel. The more I look at these photos, the more I want to make a few more chambray tees. (of varying lengths!)

Thanks for posting both of your tees – you’ve just sold me on this one vs the Scout tee as a better fit for my body type. I especially love this version – and that necklace is gorgeous!
It’s so gorgeous!! I can see that it would be one that you could wear with just about anything and look fabulous. I love the liberty detail, I think that’s just perfect. 🙂
This tee is gorgeous; I love all things chambray and it’s the perfect thing to display a great necklace like you’ve done here. Those angled darts give it a really nice fit, too!
What a great top Karyn! One of these days I need to try out working with knits
