The True Bias, Ogden Cami has been around for a while. It’s a classic shape. I picked it up together with a copy of the Emerson Pants. I recently realised that I need more separates in my wardrobe. This was a start.
I wasn’t sure how I would go as being quite pear shape my measurements fit at the bust but needed quite a bit of grading to cover my hips. I did a wearable muslin and was pleasantly surprised at the result.
I have loved the Rifle Paper Co Rayon since I saw it on the blog. I was looking at the Wattle Hill website and found just enough for an Ogden Cami there. When the fabric arrived I was not disappointed. It felt so soft and luxurious.
It arrived just in time for a long weekend where I had set aside a few days for sewing and very little else.
I probably should have slashed and spread over the whole of the garment but I just graded it out at the hips. Next time I will try the slash and spread method.
I didn’t quite have enough fabric to get the back facing out in one piece. I cut it separately and joined the piece with a french seam.
I was very careful with my seams and french seamed the insides. I love the finer details.
I cannot fault the instructions, everything was explained so clearly. I loved the pictures.
I make my own bias binding and wanted to use a contrasting bias on the hem and to finish off the facings.
I added the bias binding and finished it by hand.
I am going to make another one of these or ten. I can understand while everyone is crazy for the pattern.
On the must try list is making a nightgown out of this. It would be perfect for summer, especially with a Helen’s Closet Suki Kimono.
