Cambie Time

Yeah, so I finally had to jump on the bandwagon and make a Cambie. I've had the pattern for a few months, but it never really felt compelling enough to set aside my known tried and true patterns for an unknown.
So, here it is thus far. I have to brave our arctic Northern California cold snap to try it on sometime! Seriously, it stayed in the 40s all day and I'm freezing my butt off. I can't deal with removing my 47 layers to check the fit, but I'm dreaming of spring enough to want a cotton dress.
As far as the pattern goes, I cut a six and removed a lot of the volume of the version B full skirt. I've had three yards of this fun print in my stash for awhile and didn't nearly use it all. Not sure how well I like the finished product, it's a little twee for my usual style. Might have to rip out the piped waistband and shorten the bodice. I flaked out on lining fabric though, so If i stick with this, I might just have to draft a sleeve and collar facing instead. Wish me luck!
