As promised, here are photos of the other Cambie dress that I’ve made! 🙂
This pattern is the Sewaholic Cambie in the full skirted version. I’ve also made the a-line version as well. I made this dress out of a red paisley cotton that I picked up for a steal at Discount Fabrics in Berkeley. I am not usually a big fan of red, but I have been trying to get more in my wardrobe as I know it looks good with my complexion.
I really didn’t do much to alter this dress other than I had to grade it up to fit me. I lined this with red cotton batiste and used some of the lining for my tie belt. I skipped the invisible zipper as I: a) didn’t have one and b) am lazy. This dress definitely looks better with an invisible zipper, but still looks good with a regular one, especially if you have a busy print like I chose here.
I just love this dress and I get so many compliments when I wear it. It’s definitely not a dress that you can hide in though, as everyone notices you! But who wants to stand in the background anyway? 🙂
Happy sewing, friends!
