“purple rain” Cambie dress

by Pauline Alice
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?
