Simple….or is it?

A review of Ogden Cami

Reviewed by Modista Sewing on 1st April, 2021

Here is my Ogden hack! I made a size 10 graded to 12 with a 1 inch small bust adjustment and lengthened the bodice before adding a bottom ruffle.

Like other reviewers I think this is a great pattern but as a curvier figure I encountered fitting issues with this make. I did a 1 inch SBA but think I might grade out further next time to fit my hips.

I have a persistent issue with the Ogden in that the facing wants to pop out at the front – I know I’m not the only person to encounter this so I’m not sure if it’s my sewing style or the angle of the V but I will keep trying as I really want this to work!

Overall though it is a lovely and very versatile pattern especially with the hack variations available.
