My first post for Cali Fabrics is now up! I made this maxi in early July, using the Comino Cap bodice, and the skirt from the Sallie Jumpsuit and Dress pattern. I can tell this dress is a favourite because it’s what I reached for on the first day of ESL camp, and another time to meet a friend I haven’t seen in 10 years. When an outfit is what you want to wear to look trustworthy for work AND fun for friends, it’s a winner!
(I was also wearing this dress the day I bought the crazy border print for my latest tent dress, and it entertained me how similar the colour scheme is on the two fabrics. This dress is part of why I bought that fabric!)
For those of you that are curious (as I would be!) here’s the arrangement the #Caliblogsquad has with Cali Fabrics: We get a set allowance periodically (not monthly as with most blogger networks), and we blog about what we make with our fabric. We choose what to make, which fabric to use, and get complete control over what we say about it. As you can tell from my fabric haul videos in the past, I’ve been really happy with my orders from Cali Fabrics, so it was a no-brainer to partner with them.
You can read more about the dress on the Cali Fabrics blog! (Please come over and say hi or follow – the blogging team is 20 people strong, including a few of my favourite bloggers!) There’s also a giveaway to win a $100 gift certificate, which at Cali prices, would go a LONG way!
