Given the frigid temperatures that descended on London this last week, you’d think I would have taken the opportunity to make myself something that kept my kidneys warm eh? But no, I was sew inappropriate and made my first Ogden Cami from True Bias. I tried to convince myself that by wearing it with cardigans or blazers it would be just fine but lets face it: the feather-light cotton lawn gives me goosebumps just looking at it.
In fact it was so cold I didn’t dare venture outside to photograph it. But it is the perfect pattern to use of my scrap fabrics, and given how quick it is to sew, it makes a nice project for the dark, cold evenings after work. I re-purposed an old top to make this one but I haven’t quite got the fit right.
This is a straight size 10 and I’m bothered by the gaps/wrinkles above the bust at the armholes (which are very hard to capture in photos). Did you experience this? How did you fix it?
