Camí dresses – part 1
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:

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!

“purple rain” Cambie dress
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?
