|Dress: Handmade (Sewaholic Cambie)|
|Lucite Lovely heels: Irregular Choice|
Finally, my first Cambie dress. I mostly made this at a sewing workshop a few weeks ago at Sew Me Something, in Stratford. Heather Jacks, winner of one of the Great British Sewing Bee, along with Jules (the shop's owner) gave us a lesson in fitting bodices. I learned a couple of new tricks, but sort of wish I'd taken a pattern I've had more trouble with in the past, as this didn't need a lot of reworking to make it fit OK. Also I got a little confused when I got it home and was finishing it off as it didn't seem to fit as well as I'd thought it had when I tried it on in the class.
The ski print fabric was something I'd picked up at Abakhan just after Xmas with Alex. It was just in the bargain bin, listed as "sheeting fabric". I lined the bodice with some turquoise lining fabric. Mostly because that was all I had in my fabric trolley, but it did work quite well as it sort of picks out the blue flashes in the print of the fabric.
