    I would argue the Ogden cami by True Bias is one of the most well known and well loved sewing patterns on the indie pattern scene.

Finally I got around to making one and I'm so pleased it lived up to expectations.

It has become a firm favourite in my wardrobe so I decided to sew another one, this time I opted for Simplicity 8735. I was intrigued to work with a sewing pattern with cup sizes and thought the princess seams were a nice touch on a wrap dress too. This project was a little piece of heaven.
