I was late to the party on the True Bias Ogden Cami, but now I can see why everyone loves it so much! It's such a quick and gratifying sew!

The True Bias Ogden cami is a favorite. Simple to sew, it is easily hacked and will likely be a wardrobe staple.

There is a reason this pattern is a tried and true for a lot of makers. This is so simple to make as well as being really easy to wear. I loved the instructions and made two versions in quick succession. My only gripe would be the sizing of the straps, which I found to be a little long. It was a very quick fix though I just shortened them by 1cm each. I have a very small chest and this may definitely have affected the sizing. Other than that i have zero complaints.

LOVE this pattern!

Such a great staple!

This is the perfect pattern for using up leftover fabric or for repurposing.
My first version was a little too tight, I went by bust measurements so it should have fit fine, my second one I went up a size and it fits perfectly. I've made three so far with a fourth cut and ready to go, one of those was made from an old dress, I used the original hem from the dress which saved me a step later. I see lots of Ogdens in my future.

Amazing pattern - one of my favorites so far.

Directions are easy to follow and sizing accurate. Recommend making a muslin if you are between sizing

I really love this pattern and appreciate the quality of True Bias patterns.

The neckline on this cami is so flattering!

Super easy to use, very versatile--one of my must have patterns.

This was a super easy and quick pattern. It took me only 2 hours to make, honestly the stay-stitching took the longest. It has a relaxed fit, so very easy to fit. I went with my bust size, typically my waist/hip size is bigger but since it's fllowy, I figured it would be ok without sizing up there and I was right.

I'm a D-cup and would do a FBA for my next one. I'll also plan to shorten the straps a little. Hopefully this will address the slight bra coverage issue I'm having. I added 2 inches to the length for this one (my long torso needs it!). This was fun to sew and I enjoyed walking through all the little steps to get to a well-made finished top. I'm still newish at sewing, so I really appreciated the thorough directions. I already have fabric for a second. I'm excited for it.

So easy to follow. A great project for a beginner.

The pattern was really straight forward and easy to use. I can't wait to use it again.

I already have plans to make a couple more of these.

Easy to understand instructions for someone new to sewing clothing. Relatively quick make and the sizing is spot on.

Fantastic "one-yard-wonder". Few pages to print. Simple construction. Extremely versatile. A new favorite for sure.

Love it!

Beautifully constructed, written, and drafted. This pattern works well with so many fabrics, it'll be a wardrobe staple!

I love this pattern! It uses just a little bit of fabric and the results are such a flattering cami! Kelli of True Bias always has great patterns with great style!

This pattern is simple and versatile. I plan on using it to make a dress (as many others have already) and perhaps even playing around with the necklines. It's a great warm-weather staple!

The Ogden Cami is such a versatile and perfectly-fitting pattern. I would highly recommend it!

The instructions were clear and the top sewed up easily!

I had some difficulty getting the size right on this one for some reason - I sized for my bust and it was simply way too baggy. I ended up splitting the back piece in two and taking out a bunch of extra material there, and was really happy with the result. Yay for making a muslin first!

Tutorial for Ogden Cami- Dress hack found on the True Bias blog. Thanks Kelli!

I've already made two of these! The only problems I came across, were ones I did to myself, like not reading the instructions all the way.

Easy instructions! The only thing that I found confusing was figuring out the front and back of the shirt since (I think) the back dips lower than the front. I feel like I need to reference my pattern every time I where it. That's being said, it truly looks good either way!

One word of advice - don't try to serge the neckline! It really prevents you from getting a crisp finish there. Learn from my mistakes :)

The pattern instructions were very clear, and the pattern is well-drafted. It's really quick to make, even with a trickier fabric.
