Cambie Couture

Earlier this year I enrolled in my first Craftsy course 'The Couture Dress'.  I watched all the videos before starting but couldn't wait for the course pattern to arrive, so decided to use the Cambie Sewaholic Pattern. This is my fabulous new dress which I have entitled my Cambie Couture.


I so need to stop taking photos at the end of the day after I've worn it for a day - all you can see is sitting wrinkles!

Susan Khalje is an amazing teacher, I really enjoyed her teaching style and techniques along the way.  She effortlessly talks to the camera like she is talking to you sitting right in front of her.  I learnt so much in this class that it has really changed the way I sew. 
This was the first garment that I attached an interlining as well as lining.  It gives the dress such a quality feel when it's finished and the dress sits beautifully.
The final product is just as I imaged it.  I love the subtle pattern on the fabric and the green is perfect.  The little black dress with touch of colour!  Maybe I just need a green belt instead of a black one?
I am definitely making the Cambie again (great pattern) and I'm already onto my next dress using the couture techniques.
