My most favorite dress at the moment! The pattern is Cambie by Tasia at Sewaholic. This pattern confirmed my love for Tasia’s patterns, they don’t require too much alteration and the results are always flattering on me.
I made the dress in size 2, and my pattern alterations are:
- shortened the bodice 3 cm.
- swayback alteration
- shortened the skirt
- changed the sweetheart neckline to straight neckline, following Tasia’s tutorial here.
- I also tucked the center front a bit to prevent gaping neckline as most of my dresses tend to have this problem.
The fabric is medium-weight kimono fabric by Kokka with Sakura flowers pattern and interesting raised texture from the weft thread. Other sewing notions are blue rayon for lining and invisible zipper.
