Ogden Cami

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!!

It’s a very simple top with just a front, a back, two straps and facings. I used french seams for all the side seams and it was made in no time at all.

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.

About craftycreeky

I live in a busy market town in Yorkshire with my husband, kids, dogs and chickens. I love trying new crafts, rediscovering old ones, gardening, walking...anything creative really I started this blog after my New Year resolution worked so well. My resolution (the first one I've ever kept!) was to post a photograph of my garden on Facebook every day. My hope was that I would then see what was good in the garden and not just weeds and work, which was my tendency. The unexpected side-effect was that I have enjoyed many more hours in the garden. I am hoping that 'The Crafty Creek' will have the same effect. Happy creating!
