I have decided I need a pattern for a cami top. They’re flattering, perfect for transitional seasons (no more denial, that summer-autumn transition is coming soon…) and great to use up leftover scraps, of which I have MANY. The question is which pattern to go for?
I’m torn between two: the recently released True Bias Ogden Cami OR Simplicity Cynthia Rowley pattern 1366.
I’ve seen so many super pretty versions of the Ogden Cami on Instagram and the fit always looks perfect. However, I’ve never tried a PDF pattern before and am a bit worried it could all go wrong if I don’t stick it together just right. Also the cutting out the pattern is my least favourite part of the process, so this sort of just seems like even more effort.
The Simplicity Cynthia Rowley 1366 looks almost identical to the Ogden Cami but with a very slightly different fit. For a similar price it also comes with a boxy top pattern and two variations on a pretty impressive skirt. I’ve used loads of Simplicity patterns and the fit has always been great, but I’ve never tried a True Bias pattern…
Decisions decisions. Has anyone made either or both and can help me out with any advice?
