Hooray, I can finally wear my beloved Cambie. As I have whined before, I finished mine right before autumn and only got to wear it once or twice before the weather got un-Cambie-ooperative. So I made Lenny drive me 1100 miles to my Dad’s in Florida because I missed wearing it so much.
It’s been forever since I made it, so I don’t have specific construction details, but it’s as lovely as everyone says. Thanks to Sew Busy Lizzy pointing me in the right direction, I had the resource of the Sewaholic lining/zipper tutorial on hand before I even had a chance to screw it up.
I am happy with the innards of this dreamy thing. The fabrics are a slightly stretchy cotton broadcloth and a delicious lilac pongee lining. It almost doesn’t look right together but I adore the combo.
I even hemmed the lining. This is a big thing for me.
Invisible zipper action. One of my best yet.
Here I am in the sunshine, taking obligatory palm tree pics.
Yay pockets. And yay sick brand new red shoes that I had purchased about 15 minutes earlier. (Very happy that Lenny needed new sneaks, so that I could in turn buy FIVE pairs of shoes. Famous Footwear is dangerous. Never let me go in there again.)
Temporarily fascinated by fuzzy red Floridian flora.
And in honor of the final day of Jungle January, here are some new shades that I just bought on the road.
As always, Happiest of Sewing!!
