Sewn: Blue Ogden Cami

Ogden Cami

I've been eyeing the Ogden cami for a while now. People can't seem to stop making it and now I know why! There are minimal pieces, and the instructions are clearly written. Even though there are no darts, and it's not cut on the bias, the cami still drapes beautifully. Another thing I appreciate is that the straps hit exactly where your bra straps go, so if you're not super fond of a strapless bra you can still wear it.

But, but... I messed it up as usual (This blog should really be called 'T's Miadventures in Sewing').

It was late at night, but I really wanted to finish and ignored my instincts to put it away for another day. I sewed the bottom hem to the wrong side, so I cut it off and did it again. ONLY to have sewn it to the wrong side again. *insert endless screaming* I learned my lesson. Don't sew tired. The top is probably 1.5 inches shorter than it should have been, which thankfully still works for someone my height.

If I were to sew it again I might make the shoulder straps .5 inches longer, and the lining maybe 1 inch longer. Other than that it was perfect.

Check here for my complete Handmade Summer Wardrobe. I keep updating the list as I edit pieces and add new ones.
