A Watercolour Cambie

Added Aug 29, 2013

Belfast, United ...






This dress was actually made as a muslin for the dress I made to wear to my wedding reception – but I decided to make it out of a lovely soft cotton in my stash, and now it’s one of my favourite makes!
I used the Sewaholic Cambie pattern and as many of the other reviews say, it’s a dream to sew up. I would recommend it to everyone.

You can read more about it (including a bit of a blooper I made!) on my blog:

    This is lovely on you suzanna. the straps are lovely, i do like the broader strap. I have made muslins before and have actually preferred them to the "real dress’ lol. I hate waste so.i normally pick a nice fabric, one that i would’nt mind ruining but would be happy to wear if it turned out successful x

      That’s such a good approach Mary – I think I may start doing that too…I have far too much fabric in my stash that I need to use!!!
      Thanks for the sweet comment
