Description

I absolutely adore this pattern from Sewaholic. It fits me perfectly without any alterations and I have made three.
It comes with an a-line skirt and a full skirt. Both are lovely. I wear the a-line version to work and the full skirts on the weekends and to events. They are all much admired and I feel a million dollars when I wear them…
Most people also comment that they have a distinct vintage old-fashioned feel to them.

Check out my pattern reviews on my blog and see more pictures and you can find the polka dot Cambie post here…

    Love these dresses! The polka dotted one is perfect… I bought Cambie a couple of weeks ago, and haven’t decided on fabric yet – I might copy you and just make many!

    Those are great: Pretty, practical and fun all rolled into one. I love the way you varied the necklines. Even the two A-Lines look enough different that only someone with a sewist’s eye would begin to suspect they may have come from the same pattern. Good job!

      For a ‘pretty dress’ they are all highly versatile and I wear them anywhere and everywhere

      I was nominated for ‘best dressed’ at a social event in the pink floral. However it’s the polka dots everyone remembers, ‘oh you’re the girls with the spotty dress’!

    You look gorgeous in all three of these dresses! The fit looks perfect. I just got the Cambie pattern last month, and I’m really excited about it, especially after seeing all the amazing versions out there on the web (now including yours!)
