New Sewing Pattern: The Camí Dress!

by Pauline Alice


I am very happy to present you my first sewing pattern: the Camí dress!
The Camí dress is a very versatile shirt dress: with its sleeve variation, it can be worn all year long… Version A has short sleeves and version B has 3/4 length sleeve with cuffs.
I have been in love with the classic style of shirt dresses for a long time and that’s why I wanted to design one as my first pattern. Make the Camí dress in a cute printed cotton for a casual look or choose a  bright cotton sateen or silk blend for a more elegant touch: from day to night, the Camí will make an impression with its retro silhouette.



The dress buttons down from the clasic shirt collar to the waist and for more comfort, there is also a side zipper. There are inseam pockets as they are so practical. The high-waist and full, gathered skirt are so typical of the 50’s fashion, you know how much I love those details 🙂
5 copia
The pattern and instructions are available as PDF files in English, Spanish and French. When the order is made, the files will be sent to your e-mail within 48 hours.

Have a wonderful week!

Bonjour Pauline,
J'ai découvert votre robe via T&N et je suis sous le charme…! J'avais justemment le projet d'une robe rétro 50's dans un joli tissu rouge à feuillage, j'avais repéré un modèle burda de robe chemisier, mais la votre me parait plus que parfaite !!!!!! Et tellement plus simple j'en suis sûre à réaliser, Bravo, vous faîtes un très très beau travail, et quel plaisir de suivre vos réalisations personnelles sur T&N.
A très vite pour un craquage je le sens…

Pauline Guillet 19 September, 2013 - 10:37 am

Merci beaucoup Charlotte! Je suis ravie que le patron Camí te plaise. Ton blog est charmant et tes réalisations superbes (tout comme tes petits, super mignons).
A bientôt (peut-être pour le Sew-Along?)
