Perfect Summer Sew / Mini Ogden

The Mini Ogden Cami is one of the cute mini versions of grownup patterns by True Bias. It’s a perfect pattern for kicking off the Summer season with some quick and satisfyingly pretty sewing.

The pattern is available in sizes 2-10 as a PDF

We headed to our local fabric shop to choose some beautiful rayons for their tops. If you’ve seen Portlandia, you’ll understand me when I say that the dream of the 90’s is alive….

Between the sudden heatwave here, camera problems, and my younger daughter’s crucially chapped lips, I didn’t end up with a plethora of photos. But you get the idea.

The Ogden has a sweet subtle v-neck and spaghetti straps, and an elastic back helps it fit into their little chicken wings. Facing lines the top front half so there’s no bias binding needed for this project. I bought a yard but could have gotten away with just a half for each because I’m a pattern placement ninja.

There’s always at least one of these shots in my photo shoots. Runs in the family.
