If you are looking for an easy and fast make you have to get your hands on Ogden Cami by True Bias. It is a simple Cami top with a V neckline, straps and a half lining for a cleaner finish.
I had my eyes on this pattern for a while now, and with the beautiful weather in London lately I thought it is the perfect time to try it.
I have used leftover fabric from my Honeycomb shirt as the pattern calls for lightweight woven fabrics and I did not want to waist it. I had a less then a meter ( 150 cm in width) of it so keep that in mind before you purchase yours. TIP: do what I have done and use a scrap fabric for lining 😉
The pattern / adjustments
The process of cutting and sewing the top took me only few hours, which is amazing as I got to wear it for the rest of the day. It is such an easy make that I skipped looking at the instructions all together, for this reason I think it is great for a beginner sewer.
I have cut size 16 based on my bust measurements and the only adjustment made is to shorten the straps by 5 cm.
I had a little scrap of fabric left so I decided to add a little side patch pocket too, which I copied from Kalle shirt pattern. Love the idea that you can re-use and adapt pattern pieces however you like!
Thanks to the simple style of this pattern I can dress it down or up depending on the occasion. I have a feeling it will became a stable piece in my wardrobe because it is great for layering, meaning I can reach for it throughout the year.
