I am so excited to show off my new Cambie dress. Yes, I was one of Tasia's pattern testers for this AMAZING pattern. It was very straight forward to sew and fit my body type, even though I am not pear-shaped.
Here are some details:
I made a size 12 with the full-skirt and added adjusted for my full-bust. Because of the heart shaped bodice design, I decided to make a muslin for this portion only. I ended up adding 1/2" to the side seams and 1 1'2" to the bodice length to fit my bust size. While this isn't a true FBA, it made the fit spot-on perfect.
Since I'm not a person with a large hip issue, I'm always a fan of pockets. This dress was no exception. This is also fully lined with a light-weight polyester lining. The main fabric is a rayon georgette fabric that I picked up at Yardage Town. I will be making the other skirt version as well. This is a great dress! I wore it to Easter service and am wearing it to work under my "grandpa sweater" at work today. I feel pretty without being overdressed. This is a winner! Go get your pattern ladies.
