Now Available: Cambie Dress Pattern in PDF!

It’s July, it’s summer and it’s dress season! Which makes it the perfect time to sew up the Cambie Dress. The Cambie is another one of our best-selling sewing patterns. I’m excited to announce today that it’s now available in PDF format!

Choose from an A-line skirt or full skirt, both options have pockets! The neckline can be changed to straight across if you find the sweetheart neckline too retro or girly.

You asked for the Cambie in PDF format, and it’s here! Great for summer barbeques, wedding season and family reunions. I love the Cambie Dress, it hasn’t lost its appeal to me years after its release. It has a vintage-inspired look, but it’s practical with pockets and shoulder-covering straps, with a high neckline in the back so the straps don’t fall down. The banded waist defines the waistline and supports the skirt. I still can’t decide if I prefer the full or the A-line skirt, they’re both flattering and comfortable to wear!

Thanks to everyone who’s told us what downloadable patterns you want. Eventually, we’ll have PDF options for everything. One by one we will get them all done!

To celebrate the launch of the downloadable Cambie Dress pattern, it’s on sale!

For the next month, the Cambie Dress PDF Pattern will be on sale for $11.98. (Normal price will be $13.98, after the sale ends August 7th.)

Download the Cambie PDF pattern today. Thanks for your support!

    I had a dream the other night, don’t remember what it was about, but I was wearing the Gabriola skirt. I have the fabric, now I just need to wait for the PDF :)

      It’s on the list! I love that you had a dream about the Gabriola :)

    Good reminder for me to sit down and do fit adjustments so that I can finally make a non muslin version. I’m so impatient, and not a pear shape. But it is so cute! I had to have it.

    I made the Gabriola – It’s really cute! I want to make it again, in a longer length, in some light almost shirtweight denim that I picked up on sale. I also have a great border print that I think I’ll use it for a Cambie.

    This looks so great! I particularly love the pockets!

    Oh this is so exciting! I have long admired the Cambie but knew there was no point buying a paper version for me, I’d never get around to tracing it. So happy it’s in PDF!

    Hi Tasia,

    I want to just print the View A skirt pieces for the Cambie dress, no lining, just the skirt and pockets. I’m having a really hard time figuring out which pages to print, because the outlines just have page numbers for the dress options. Would you (or perhaps someone else) be able to help me figure it out? So far I have pages 32-44… I think that’s the back skirt and pocket.

      Hi Kris, Ok, let me see what I can do! If it’s easy for me to figure out I’ll let you know.

      It’s not super easy to figure out unless I print the whole thing out :) I’d look for the pieces with the pattern label on them, and then locate the tiles next to each label piece. For example, Skirt Front A is on p22 and extends on to three other pages. We have it easily divided by View A and View B, but not broken down into sections of the dress!

        Oh, that’s a good start for that one! Thank you.

        I went into Spool of Thread and came out with some cat fabric today, so I might just print the WHOLE THING. :) I haven’t decided which skirt option I want for the dress, but I definitely want to make a skirt out of the more fitted option.
