Last summer I saw a few blog posts about the Ogden Cami pattern by True Bias.
I decided to buy the pdf pattern, much as I hate sticking all the sheets together, I reasoned that there can’t be that many pages for a simple cami! There were still nine sheets but that’s fairly manageable! I have to admit it then pretty much sat in my computer, forgotton about!
I was originally planning to make up one of the fabrics I bought in London into a little summer top. I suddenly remembered the Ogden Cami, managed to find it on my computer (A feat in itself!) and decided it looked nice and quick, which was just what I needed. I also felt it needed to be in a fairly soft cotton, the one I had in mind to make was just a little too crisp. I dug around in my stash and found this really pretty length of cotton, I think it might be a Liberty one, it certainly feels soft enough. It’s a really pretty pattern, looks floral but actually it isn’t!!
The front is officially the side with the higher neckline, I actually prefer it the other way round. It’s lovely to wear and I think it works either tucked in or loose. It goes great with a silk skirt I made a couple of years ago.
