I had a stand at a big craft fair at the weekend – the largest I’ve done, with over 100 different makers. I was pretty nervous, but my new Cambie dress helped me feel more confident! (That sounds like a really cheesy advert, but it did.)
The fabric is a polka dot cotton with a slight sheen, and I lined it with silk/cotton lining fabric from here. Next time I make this dress I’ll shorten the bodice a bit. It was folding over at the top, and I think a lower neckline is more flattering on me. Very pleased with it though – it was comfortable and I felt smart and pulled together.
We had a fantastic pitch – Exeter Cathedral is in the background in this photo – and the sun came out, at last. A very happy and successful couple of days!
