Hello!
First, I would like to thank you so much for the warm welcome you gave the Camí dress pattern. It’s amazing and a dream come true for me. I am beyond happy! So THANKS SO MUCH!
Second, I thought I would show you the Camí dresses that were made by the pattern testers: they are amazing! Thank you girls! So here is the first part of the Camí testers dresses:
cami-dresses-part-1-1
Mari Cruz from Dedal, Aguja e hilo made a gorgeous purple gingham Camí dress with short sleeves. She decided to reduce the skirt width and it works so well like that! Can you see how the buttons match her shoes perfectly?

 

cami-dresses-part-1-2I just love the eyelet insert Sonia did on her version of the Camí dress! Go to her blog La Pequeña Aprendiz to see all the pretty pictures she took and look at the details of her dress. She also choose the short sleeves version (Spanish weather!) and used a beautiful coral pink cotton sateen.
cami-dresses-part-1-3Roisin from But it can’t be from Dolly Clackett also made a purple gingham version! Coincidence? I guess the pattern screams retro gingham fabric… It looks amazing on her! She went for the extra full skirt and I love it!
Be sure you check out their amazing versions and blogs! The other testers versions will come very soon for more inspiration.
And remember that the Camí dress pattern is available HERE!
Have a great week end!

Je suis heureuse de vous présenter mon premier patron de couture: la robe Camí!
Il s’agit d’une robe chemisier très versatile: avec ses variations de manches, elle peut être portée tout au long de l’année…
La version A est à manches courtes tandis que la version B a des manches 3/4 avec poignet.

J’adore le style classique des robes chemisier depuis toujours, c’est pourquoi j’ai décidé que ce serai mon premier patron. Faites la robe dans un coton à l’imprimé romantique pour un look casual ou dans un satin de coton ou de la soie pour un air de fête: du matin jusqu’au soir, la robe Camí fera sensation avec son allure rétro.

 

Camí1

 La robe se boutonne depuis le col chemisier jusqu’à la taille et possède également une fermeture éclair pour plus de confort. Et pour joindre l’utile à l’agréable, la robe Camí possède des poches prises dans les coutures latérales. La taille haute et la jupe froncée sont typiques des années 50, et vous savez à quel point j’aime ces détails 🙂

Hello, as promised, here is the Piping Dress:
 

piping-dress-sewing-pattern-1

I drafted the pattern myself and I still have to improve the shape and the fit, but I am quite happy. The bodice is one piece with front darts and it is sewn to the yoke/straps at the collar and at the back. The bodice and the gathered skirt are joined with the waistband. I also added in-seams pockets (so useful!).
Fitting the yoke/straps was a nightmare: I had to make 2 more muslins before getting it ok and I am still not completely satisfied (as you can see, the back rides up a little bit).

 

piping-dress-sewing-pattern-2

Even with these little problems, I love the dress. The shape is very nice and flattering, the fabric is amazing and the piping details set it apart. And the open-back, what can I say about it? I just love it! I am fulfilling my summer to-do list one item at a time: this one checks the retro dress inspiration moodboard.

scarlett-ohara-barbacue-dress-sewing-pattern-1

That’s the last dress I made: the famous barbecue dress worn by Scarlett O’Hara in Gone with the wind.
I made it for a special occasion (I don’t wear that kind of dresses on a daily basis, sorry to disappoint you): a costume birthday party! How cool is that? I love costume parties…
And as the theme was the cinema, I couldn’t think of a better heroine than Scarlett.

scarlett-ohara-barbacue-dress-sewing-pattern-2scarlett-ohara-barbacue-dress-sewing-pattern-3I drafted the pattern myself: the skirt is gathered (5 meters of fabric) and the bodice has front and back darts. It was not a dificult dress to make even if it looks like it, but quite time consumming (one week-end non-stop).
The most important part of the costume is the foundation: a corset, a hoop-skirt and an underskirt. I will explain all those parts in the following post.

 

scarlett-ohara-barbacue-dress-sewing-pattern-4The dress was surprisingly very confortable and so dramatic. I didn’t want to take it off at the end of the night…
I leave you with a short excerpt from the movie where you can see the dress and the foundation worn by Scarlett I used as inspiration.
See you on Friday for the details post.

purple-rain-cambie.dress-sewing-pattern-1
As the weather has been so nice in Valencia, I felt like sewing up a little Spring dress during Easter week end. And what better pattern than the Cambie dress by Sewaholic?
This is one of my favourite patterns for its versatility, its elegant silhouette and the cute details like the pockets, the sweetheart neckline and the gathered cap sleeves.

I used a poly/cotton blend that I bought on sales at Julián López for 1,99 €/m. That was quite a bargain! That fabric is very comfortable to wear because there is a very little bit of stretch, which is more than I am used to. It’s also very nice to work with and the print is so beautiful. I even found the perfect matching scenery for the pictures…
The dress bodice is lined with an electric blue lining fabric as that’s the only colour I had left and I liked the contrast. The skirt is unlined.

The inseam pockets are just perfect and so useful, I love them so much that if a dress pattern doesn’t include them, I just add them myself.
It’s the third Cambie I am sewing and I am sure it’s not the last. I didn’t have to make any alteration to the pattern, it fits like a glove and the shape answers all my prayers.

I am also sewing the muslin for my Mad Men dress. I am hoping to make a wearable muslin so I have another dress from a leftover fabric.
What about you? Sewing for Spring already?

self-drafted garden roses dress back

J’ai bien profité du beau temps de Valence dans ma nouvelle robe faite à partir d’un patron maison. Elle est faite pour les promenades dans la ville, les ballades à vélo, les pique-niques et les soirées fraîches de fin d’été.

J’avais en tête cette forme de robe depuis un petit bout de temps et je me suis décidée à en faire le patron. Le corsage est composé de découpes princesses sur le devant, un dos d’une seule pièce, une fermeture écalir sur le côté. Quand à la jupe, il s’agit d’un rectangle avec des fronces réparties sur les côtés et le dos. Les bretelles croisées ont été faites avec un appareil à biais que je viens d’acheter (comment ai-je pu m’en passer?).

Bien qu’un peu transparent, ce coton feuri est vraiement très joli et agréable à porter. J’ai décidé de doubler la robe entièrement!
