Sew Dolly Clacket… just in the nick of time!

I jumped on this bandwagon a little late in the game- silly work schedule. See, I bought this koi quilting cotton maybe a year ago that I knew I wanted to make into a skirt…later, maybe 4 months ago, I bought the Cambie pattern and put two and two together. Some of you know how much I thrive on deadlines and this sew-along was the perfect thing to get my first (yeah, hard to believe) Cambie done! The eggplant bodice is made out of a gorgeous sateen I bought in town at The French Seam.

I muslined a straight size 10- no alterations- and while an FBA on a size 8 would fit like a glove, I was going for a quickie and I still think the fit is really good. The skirt is forgiving because it’s gathered… you all know the beautiful drafting Tasia does so I’ll just show you pictures and tell you I already have another Cambie in mind- with a sushi quilting cotton I bought what seems like eons ago! I’m thinking black for the bodice…unless I can find a red sateen that matches perfectly with the sushi fabric.

Thank you Sarah over at Rhinestones and Telephones for orchestrating this- you are amazing!

      I didn’t know how much I’d love this neckline! I think it would also be cute as a top, just leaving it without the skirt. I think it would look like a pattern from Named that I’ve been eyeing.

        It would be a cute top! You also need to try the Dandelion Dress/Top pattern – it has a similar neckline option but completely different seams. (And I’d love to see your take on it!)
