What sort of Cambie to make?

Published by at 1:49 am under Sewing

So I’ve been debating about what sort of Cambie dress to make. I actually made the Renfrew top last weekend but haven’t had a chance to take pictures yet. I will try and do that this weekend.

Anyhow, I’ve seen so many Cambies that I love online. I found this great site called Flickriver which looks like a Flickr scraping site. Anyhow, putting in “sewaholic cambie” as the search yields many useful results. Here’s the link so you can look for yourself.

But for those of you that don’t want to sift through tons of Cambie pictures (why ever not??) here are some of my favorites. I’m only providing links right now because I’m not sure what I’m “allowed” to do with respect to posting pictures from other blogs and I don’t have time to ask for permission from a bunch of people. But I know I can post links.

White with red polka dots by Sew Busy Lizzy

Romantic floral by Cloth Habit

Red with white polka dots by Dolly Clackett (I’m sensing a theme here . . .) 

Fun floral by Very Purple Person

Grey eyelet by Just Skirts and Dresses

Those are just some that I really like. The ones Tasia posted on sewaholic.com as samples are also nice. And most solid colors seem to do well.

I have to make the muslin first so that gives me some time, but I’m hoping to make one to wear for my birthday at the end of the month, so not too much time. Right now leaning towards a solid because I want something that can be a little nicer in case we go out to a place with cloth napkins for dinner.

P.S. If anyone does know the answer for how I can post photos of things I like that I see on other blogs, please let me know. I know to download and then link back so that I don’t suck bandwidth, but I find it hard to believe that all the sites I see ask permission from tons of people, but maybe they do? Until then, I will err on the side of caution.
