Hi Everyone,

this is my first Post here and my name is Tina. I started sewing one year ago and I think I can`t live without it anymore. I love the fashion of the 30s till 60s (and early 70s) and I´m always looking for beautiful patterns.

I have seen a lot of the Cambie dresses from  Sewaholic  recently, so I dreamed about, to show you mine.


Here it is:

Hi Tina,
Your dress looks great. I love this pattern.
I wonder if you added some fabric to the neckline? It seems higher than on my dress…

I think it´s because the neckline was to big so I cut the cap sleeves. Next time I will take size 6. ( This time is size 8).

A great summer dress.
The more I see the dresses made from the cambie pattern the more I want to buy a copy.

Lovely dress! Now you make me dream about making my own version. I’ve seen nothing but cute dresses made from this pattern, it’s definitely getting on my “to buy” list.
