This is my take on the Cambie Dress from Sewaholic Patterns. It’s made of blue/brown chambray with Bemberg rayon for the lining. It’s hard to see the brown, but blue and brown threads are woven together to create great sheen to the dress! I made view A, the A-line skirt.
There are a few fit issues, namely the waist darts since I had to shorten the shoulder straps after the dress was assembled. This caused the darts to sit a little higher than planned so there’s a bit of pulling. Oh well! All in all, I’m happy with it and would love to make another dress in a print. :)
