My Cambie Dress

Hi Everyone!

I was another lucky soul who got to test the Sewaholic Cambie dresses. A few pics:


I made the A-line version to make something office appropriate. I used what feels like a wool/poly blend that is of medium weight with a nice hand. It’s lined with gray cotton voile and I used satin (probably poly) to make the straps. It helps break up the tiny houndstooth pattern of my main fabric don’t you think?


More pics of the inside and more info over at my blog: Kitty’s Drawings

It’s not vintage – but definitely vintage inspired!

Its a really great pattern – so easy to make up!

Just realised that the biggest size in that pattern is a 16. What a shame! I will just copy it instead ;-)
