It’s Me-Made May, which means that I’ve been making a more concerted effort to wear my handmade items when I get dressed in the morning, both new ones, like these, as well as older makes that had been shoved to the back of my closet.
I made this True Bias Ogden Cami immediately on the heels of my first Ogden Cami. The pattern is so easy to make and easy to wear that I couldn’t stop at one! On this cami, I used bias tape for the straps because I could not get those skinny tubes turned in this rayon twill. The fabric is lovely to wear and sewed up fairly well, but it did not appreciate my attempts to turn it into small tubes of fabric. In hindsight, I should have made self bias tape for the straps on this one. But at 10pm when I was almost finished, I couldn’t be bothered to go back to my cutting table and cut new strap pieces.
Naturally I paired it with my Closet Case Morgan Jeans that have been faded and distressed. I find these jeans to be the perfect complement to a feminine top like this one. And they’re just darned comfy to wear!
I just finished making a whole slew of woven tanks this weekend to round out my work wardrobe. But after I clear out another UFO or two, I think I may have to crank out one or two more of these camis for summer. I have a whole pile of rayon challis just calling my name!
