Unfortunately I had a need for a black dress a couple of months ago. I had gained some weight since the last time I needed to wear one so my old one was not an option.
I tried to make the best of the situation by making myself a Cambie Dress. I bought some black peachskin from JoAnn's as well as black lining fabric. I've never lined any of my garments so I was a little nervous.
So while I wish I didn't need to make this dress, I'm so glad I did! It is a little fancy for my work so I have plans to make another using a fun clearance sheet I found at Target a couple of weeks ago.
I feel that this is honestly one of the best fitting and most flattering garments I've ever made!!
An invisible zipper, another first for me. I made it a little TOO invisible on my first attempt and couldn't get it zipped up. I unpicked a bit of the lining and used a ladder stitch to redo it, and voila! no more problems :).
I will definitely be making more of these in the future!!
