Well if nothing I like a tight deadline it seems.
With less than 24 hours left of dress week for indie pattern month, I decide I’m going to get sewing on the Mickey Mouse Cambie dress I had planned to get my sewjo back.
The pattern is an all time favourite, and I believe a perfect silhouette for any novelty print, the Cambie Dress from Sewaholic in view B. The fabric is some Mickey Mouse quilting cotton from my local spotlight, plus some red poplin for contrast from the stash. The dress is also lined in plain white poplin also from the stash.
Modifications made, include a 1inch FBA, a shortened bodice, and I also used a self drafted quarter circle skirt for the lining to avoid the additional bulk the recommended gathered version adds. Contrast trim added to skirt hem to help balance out the print a little. Lapped zipper, I also left out the pockets to save some time, but I can already tell I’m going to regret it and will probably go back at a later date and add them in.
For a super quick make, I’m so happy with how it has come together. I love every single Cambie dress I make, but I think this might be a new favourite. I especially love the contrast trim on the hem.
