Blue floral Camí

Blue floral Camí
This dress have been waiting almost 1 year to be made! From the day I bought the fabric on sales last summer to last week when I finally stitched the last button, I knew exactly this blue floral border print would make a great Camí dress (even if at the time the Camí pattern didn’t even have a name, it was just a sketch).
I’m glad I made it as it’s a great summer dress. I wore it to the sea shore last weekend and it was perfect for the weather.

1aI had some fun with the floral stripes and decided to use them verticaly on the bodice (to follow the button placket) and horizontaly on the skirt and sleeves to use the larger border for the hem.
I found some exemple on Pinterest (I even considered a chevron pattern but didn’t know where to place it).

Thanks Stevie! Blue is my favourite colour as well, so when I saw that fabric I knew I had to bring it back home.

That fabric is so gorgeous and works perfectly with your Cami dress. I love how you've placed the stripes on the pattern. If I happen to find a border stripe like yours I think I'll make the same dress. It has a timeless retro feel about it.

Pauline Alice 15 May, 2014 - 6:51 pm

Thanks! I have another border print waiting for the same pattern (even if border prints go well with any kind of gathered skirts like that). They're not so easy to find so when I find a good one, I buy it, even if I don't have a project in mind. You never know…

Such a nice dress! When will I be able to buy the printed pattern?

Reply
Pauline Alice 15 May, 2014 - 6:48 pm

Thanks! The patterns are at the printer at the moment and the new shop page is on its way. I'm hoping that at the end of the month you'll be able to buy the printed version (fingers crossed!).

Elle est vraiment très très très jolie cette Cami! Et portée, elle est encore plus convaincante! Après t'avoir bien admirée et aperçu les versions de Sandra et de Marisa, je pense qu'il me faudra une Cami fleurie en plus de ma Cami menthe à l'eau…décidément tu es responsable de ma ruine en tissu ces dernières semaines;)

Reply
Pauline Alice 16 May, 2014 - 7:03 pm

héhé… toutes mes excuses Annie! Mais je dois avouer que j'ai quand même bien hâte de voir cette Camí menthe à l'eau… et sa petite soeur fleurie aussi ; )

Thanks! The boat was asking to be in the background 😉

Nice work with the stripes & border placement! I can get a little bit overwhelmed with all the options with stripes so I usually just end up playing it safe & go for horizontal! Looks like it was the perfect day to be out & about strolling around the harbour 🙂

Pauline Alice 17 May, 2014 - 6:14 pm

Thanks Jenny! I was going to play it safe at the beginning but I felt the fabric deserved something special. Oh yeah, the day was so nice! That's what I love about living on the Mediterranean coast, the weather is perfect ; )
