a Designer Stitch design
sewn by Synthia
I am loving the Camilia dress. I enjoyed sewing this dress so I made 3 because I know they will be used often. While the design is the same, each of my 3 dresses are intended for a different purpose and made from 3 different fabric types. I love the way the Camilia hugs your body, giving any body type a figure flattering look. Comes in two dress lengths and 3 sleeves lengths.
My favorite Camilia dress is the first one I made in Red. I chose red because I had Holidays in mind for this upcoming season. The fabric I chose was in my fabric stash. It is a medium weight stretch fabric, it shines, and shows the front pleats very well. I made the 3/4" sleeve length and just past the knee.
Camilia dress #2
For the Camilia dress above, in pink/wine/black/white colors, I chose to use a medium weight Liverpool fabric. I love this fabric, very easy to sew and holds the pleats very well, comfortable to wear. I made this dress sleeveless and plan on using it while there are still a few summer weeks. This was my friend's favorite.
Dress #3 is more of a casual wear dress. I made dress #3 out of a medium weight jersey type fabric with great stretch and recovery. The key to having the pleats not droop, great recovery from whatever type of stretch fabric is used. I love how this dress feels on, very comfortable and figure flattering. I made the long sleeve version and comes just below the knee. This dress can be casual or dressy.
Thank you Ann Grose from Designer Stitch Designs, for another great design.
