Girl Charlee. (You can find the print here.) Striking, isn't it? I made an extra effort to center the design and match up the lines. I think it was worth it!
Since the peach skin is poly, I lined the dress in a soft, black cotton lawn. That way, I have a breathable fabric next to the skin.
Sewaholic's Cambie dress. I cut out a size smaller than usual--not sure why. As a result, it was too tight, and I had to add in a small panel at the back zipper. Thankfully, the pattern is busy enough that it's not too tragic, but it does mess up my careful pattern matching.
Still, I'm quite proud of this dress. I really like the way the cap sleeves look while standing up. After wearing the dress all day at the office, I noticed that the sleeves gaped when sitting down. Anyone else have this problem with the Cambie? I am reluctant to take in the straps any more as it fit very nicely now when standing...Would love to hear your suggestions on how to deal with the gaping while sitting.
