I can’t believe it has taken me this long to post about my crane Ogden Cami…well I kinda can because I have been SO busy but I’ve had this finished for over a month – no excuses!
Anyway, I am so pleased with how this Ogden Cami from True Bias turned out. I had a failed attempt with my first one (think slippery fabric & see through) but am so happy with how my second attempt turned out. Honestly who doesn’t love the Ogden Cami? It is such a simple wardrobe staple and I cannot wait to add more to my wardrobe. They are just such a versatile wardrobe piece and perfect for all seasons.
This gorgeous crane rayon is from Spotlight. It has been a super popular print this year although at first I wasn’t sure if I liked it. Then I found this piece in the remnant bin for something like $4 for the 1/2 metre and I knew I had to have it.
The construction of the Ogden Cami is so easy. I think the trickiest bit is under stitching the facings because it can get tight as you are getting closer to the straps. I am a little bit annoyed at myself because I did rush the construction of this a tad so my v’s are not really v’s (I forgot to snip the seam allowances before I turned them through.) It won’t stop me wearing it but I will be less rushy next time! I also didn’t have enough fabric for both the facing pieces so I had to use something else for the front. Annoyingly I can tell the difference so if this happens again I might use a cotton lawn instead.
I love the look of this tucked in with a skirt like I am wearing above (I have paired it with a knit pencil skirt I made from the Mimi G Style tutorial) or over a skirt / shorts / jeans (see – versatile!)
I am currently working through an Ogden Cami hack that I hope will turn out! I will be sharing it here and on my YouTube Channel if it does.
