It's official.  The True Bias Ogden Cami is magic!  I haven't seen a version I don't like.  It's gorgeous as drafted but there are so many ways you can alter it to make it your own.  And it's about the easiest thing ever to sew.

I fell in love with this printed rayon at Spotlight and knew that I'd found the perfect fabric for my first (yes there will be more) Ogden Cami.

Because the fabric is a little bit sheer I did a full lining instead of just the partial lining included but other than that this is straight off the PDF.  Next time I think I'll add about an inch to the length to give myself options with the hem.  I've finished this version with a baby hem because I didn't want to lose any length so it would be nice to be able to adjust that slightly next time.

When I bought this pattern I also bought the Southport Dress, Colfax dress and the Sutton blouse and now I'm really keen to get them sewn up.  I was really impressed with the drafting and instructions and the final fit.  I have no idea what's next in my sewing queue - I want to make all the things!

Hmmm. I may have to add this pattern to the shopping list!

It looks fantastic. This is the kind of top I always end up buying retail. So versatile!!

Just lovely. And you are right, this pattern looks great on everybody. I might just have to go buy it.

I love these camis. After doubting them I have just made a similar one myself.

Love this cami, is it cut on the bias?

I also find them great in silk for a layering as the weather gets cooler, looks like I am going shopping.

So pretty and I had to giggle, I have just purchased four metres of this for my Lidia and have cut a mini Ogden (with width added) for her.
The colour suits you well.
