Unlimited Hacking Potential

A review of True Bias Ogden Cami

Reviewed by Madeleine on 15th May, 2023

This is a staple pattern for a reason. Not only does it take less than a meter (fabric consumption includes facings so you can save even more fabric by using a different one for those) it’s a fairly quick sew. I think the possibilities for hacking are endless- tiered dresses, square necks, and peplums are all easily doable with this as a base. For the dress in the pic I cut the pattern 1.5 cm below the lengthen/shorten line and added a gathered skirt for a simple tank dress. Plus added side seam pockets because, duh.

In terms of sizing, I’d recommend choosing a size based on your bust. Mine fits a bit snug but only because I sized down when I shouldn’t have. The pattern has plenty of ease in the waist.
