The Ogden Cami Top

I’ve seen this made up loads of times. It’s one of those pieces of clothing that everyone seems to have. These days ( bigger bust, bigger bra straps, can’t go without a bra, fat arms, wobbly skin etc etc) I don’t wear them often and not in public ever! The only time I would wear one would be infer a wrap dress or a jacket/cardigan.

That said, I think they look lovely on younger bodies. Made in a drapey floaty fabric such as silk, crepe, viscose or polyester, they are easy to wear.

I wanted to make some as presents and so I made a toile in a size 10 with some leftover soft olive green fabric. As I hadn’t got enough to do the lining, made it in a contrasting pattern fabric.

I was very good and traced it off first. It took me a couple days to sew it up, but I am pleased with the finished article. I now need someone of the right size to try it on now.

I ordered some navy washed linen from Higgs and Higgs to make another for a present. It’s arrived and is ready to cut out and sew – tomorrow! I have decided to size it down to an 8 and will post a pic of the finished article when its done 🙂

And here it is!

Navy linen

I really like it and I hope the recipient does too.
