Pattern Sizing: I made a 6 up top and 4 below the waist
Did it look like the photo/drawing on the pattern envelope once you were done sewing with it? Yes!
Were the instructions easy to follow? Very much so
What did you particularly like or dislike about the pattern? I love everything about this pattern. It goes together so easily and is super flattering. I made the A-line version first, and didn't think this version was really "me", but when I found this fabric I decided to go for it.
Fabric Used: Nani Iro Melody Sketch double gauze cotton. My first time using double gauze, and now I am hooked! It was a dream to sew with and even nicer to wear. It hardly wrinkles...score! Lined with ivory colour bemberg.
Pattern alterations or any design changes you made: I made the square neckline following instructions on the Sewaholic blog. I found the neckline quite gapey on my muslin, so I slashed up through the dart to make a hinge, then opened the dart, causing the neckline to "close" by about one inch at the top. I also lined this with view A skirt, as I was worried that it was getting a bit bulky with the double gauze. I also inserted a regular zipper by hand.
Would you sew it again? Would you recommend it to others? This is my second Cambie, and I would love to make more. It looks really different depending on the fabric.
