Since my first version of this pattern went so well, I didn't really waste any time in making a second, more casual one. This Liberty tana lawn has been in my stash since October and I had been a bit scared to cut into it, since it was definitely one of the fancier fabrics I owned!
|It turned out ok!
I added about 1,5 cm to the back seam of the dress, since the first one was a bit on the tight side and I wanted to be able to wear this in the summer. This solved the problem entirely, although I might take some out of the neck again for the next one (because hell yes there will be a next one).
I really love how this bodice looks. The sleeve construction is quite brilliant, you feel like you are wearing sleeves, but with the comfort of a sleeveless dress. I lined the bodice in a lightweight white cotton.
Here are some action shots, with my dog making an appearance in one of them. I was so happy about the weather getting nice but it went back to cold and rainy in no time.
I feel very comfortable in this dress, and see it becoming a summer staple real quick! Keep your eyes peeled for more Cambies in the near future... For now I will leave you with some kitty cuteness:
(Since my dog got a place in this post I thought it would only be fair to put my other little buddy in there too. This is Jakkepoes, and he's turning fourteen years old tomorrow! This picture makes it look like he doesn't really want to be cuddled, but the opposite is quite true.)
