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?

It’s not vintage – but definitely vintage inspired!
Here is my first ever tutorial – I thought I’d share here too but it’s over at my BLOG if you want to ask questions (I’ll answer quicker there). The pics are bigger there too since this format is narrower than my blog.
This dress, made from Mccall’s 6006 (1945) has to be my favourite make so far! I am so so in love with 1940′s Mccall’s patterns – they’re just the best. What I love about this one is – the cool cap sleeves…If you could call them that. Maybe flutter sleeves? The tucks at the shoulder and back waist. The gathering on the front waist….The awesome gored skirt.

On Good Friday, I attended The Dreamstress’s corset making class at the Thread Den in Melbourne.
The day was a blast and I came out with a great little corset and a lot of things learnt, and new people met. To think you can create this in around 10 hours is amazing!
