Camber Love

Like many of you, we all at Ray Stitch took a little pile of patterns home with us before Christmas with the aim (faint hope?) of doing a bit of sewing over the holidays. Some of us were more successful than others at achieving that goal but we've seen a fair few lovely home made garments parading through the shop over the last week or so.

One of the most popular, it being a quick and simple, make-it-up-in-anything pattern, has been the Camber Set by Merchant and Mills. We've seen it made up in allsorts - prints, linens, jerseys, long versions, short versions, you name it.

Rachel and Michelle went went for a couple of lovely Nani Iro prints (see below) both quite different but both worked the style equally well.

If you've been eyeing up the pattern and would like to have a go, we're running a two-part 'Make a Camber Dress' class in the sewing school this month. The first (evening) sessions sold out pretty quickly so we've added a Saturday all-dayer on 25th Jan. Why not give it a try? We thoroughly recommend the pattern for it's versatility and can guarantee you'll make it up more than once!

Class details are here (the pattern is included).
