Cambie Couture

What was your source for this sewing project? Online Photo or Website Name of website or photo Cambie Dress Link to website or photo www.sewaholicpatterns.com/product/1202-cambie-dress What are you most proud of? The pattern is designed for the pear shape woman and I am have the rectangular shape body. So my alterations to the bottom half skirt had to take into account the angled pockets while reducing the hips and maintaining the waist. This took a few fittings of the muslin but the end result I have very happy with. This is the first dress I've made using the couture techniques and overall the dress feels expensive. What advice would you give someone starting this project? Enjoy the couture process.
