Happy Hump Day! It’s the first week of June – and the hot weather has been showing out! I was totally prepared for this. I mean, I bought the Ogden Cami pattern from True Bias and I’ve already used the pattern twice and my brain is filled with tons more ideas and hacks.
For my hack, I used a poplin shirting fabric (perfect and totally breathable) from Fabric.com. It’s by Telio. And I extended the bodice to make a short dress. If you remember from my last post, I measured down to about 32 inches. If you notice, I also have ties on my dress. The original pattern calls to make 2 straps. I made 4 in my instance and made a topstitch finish at the edge of my straps. These are actual ties, not sewn together for an illusion.
I also made a personal adjustment to the lining. I noticed when I made my first cami in a wearable muslin that the lining just BARELY covered my breasts. I extended the lining by 2 inches since I’m well into the D cup area, and this gave me more than enough space and coverage.
I think it goes without saying that I would make this again. I absolutely adore the v-neckline and the I plan to use this year round. A girl can never have too many camis. I think I would like to make one with flounce next time.
