Here is the 2nd part of the Camí dresses made by the pattern testers (and one very fast-sewing buyer). It’s so great to see the different styles everyone of them chose according to her personality. I hope they will inspire you to make your own Camí dress!
Isa from Onlylola made such a cute version: navy fabric with small white polka dots and red buttons! Hello Sailor! Isn’t she beautiful?
Lisa’s version is more classic in a blue cotton (go see the fabric detail on her blog Small Things, there are some little textured dots on the fabric: so pretty!). She was brave enough to test the 3/4 long sleeve version with cuffs and she made a wonderful job!
I think gingham was a perfect match for the Camí dress as Adrienne also used this fabric! But her’s blue! You can see her beautiful dress on her blog All Style and All Substance.
I thought I would also show you Inge’s version. She bought the pattern at the beginning of last week and posted the results on twitter 2 days ago. How fast does she sew? And how cute is she? I love how she made a classic black dress but used green buttons and green topstitching to brighten it! Check out her blog for more pictures.
I have been taking pictures of the sewing steps of the Camí dress. I am planning on making a step-by-step tutorial with photos so that anyone who purchased the pattern can follow the instructions and the blog tutorial for extra information. And it might also reassure some of you about the techniques involved (shirt collar, cuffs, button placket…). I hope it will be useful!
And right now I am drafting and making muslins for the red jacket and dress I am making for my cousin’s wedding (less than a month now, I should hurry). The jacket is starting to look nice.
Have a nice week!
