This is Sewaholic’s Cambie pattern, View B. The fabric is the fabulous navy eyelet that I purchased from Britex on a to San Francisco. I used the solid selvage edge of the eyelet for the waist band. The underlining and bodice lining were mystery polyester/synthetic blends purchased from Jo-Ann’s.
I cut out a size 6 and graded the pattern to a size 8 at the waist. I also made a swayback adjustment, which is standard for me on most dress patterns, and took in the upper back shoulder about an inch.
I underlined the eyelet fabric and only added lining to the bodice. I omitted the skirt lining because I worried that the dress was becoming too bulky. I decided that the fabric was opaque enough with the underlining to avoid any wardrobe malfunctions.
