Well 2020 was such a shit year, I was desperate to start 2021 off on the right foot. Part of that, for me, was dedicating more time in my life to creating things! I have been long collecting fabric and patterns (and yarn + a million other craft supplies) for long enough. 2021 is the year to start making things!
One of the patterns I bought a year or two ago was the Odgen Cami by True Bias Patterns. It looked simple enough to make and comfy to wear. Plus I had some great linens that I knew would be perfect for it.
So I decided to start of my year with this top. I chose a floral linen that I got from Fabricland two years ago. Actually, my amazing mama bought me me some fabric for my birthday so I could make some new clothes! I guess it’s the gift that keeps on giving!
The pattern was super easy! There were very few pieces and the top is lined halfway down to ensure that it is a clean look around the neckline. I didn’t even mind having to turn the straps right side out! It’s usually such an annoying job.
This was my second True Bias pattern. I made some shorts last year, which I will link to once I get that posted. Their patterns are so well written and easy to understand – I definitely recommend!
This only took me half a day to throw together, which is another thing I LOVED about it. I am definitely going to make more, but I think I will probably figure out how to dart the top a but so I get a nice fit in the chest and I will definitely make it a little longer.
All in all, not bad for an afternoon. I have also worn this multiple times and it ups my work from home attire while still maintaining the required comfort!
