Ogden Cami Tiered Dress Hack

Friday, October 28, 2022

I finished this True Bias Ogden cami dress hack with tie straps, coincidentally in time for Ogden cami month back in August.

(See more photos at the end of the post.)

Size / View:

Size 4 bust, graded to size 0 waist.

For reference, my measurements are:
  • Bust: 34.5"
  • High Bust: 32.5"
  • Waist: 29"
  • Hip: 37.5"
  • Height: 5' 0"


The pink patterned fabric is from FABRIC a few years back, along with peachskin lining from Joann.

Adjustments / Construction:

  • Leveraged a tutorial from  Intensely Distracted's version here, but there is one on the True Bias blog now too, here.
  • Fully lined bodice and self-drafted 1/2 circle skirt under the patterned fabric
  • Based on where I wanted the waist to fall, measured 7" down from center front V-neck
  • Added 1.75" length to the front center to accommodate volume from the bust and used the original pattern to apply a curve so that the sides were still 7" down

      Next Time:

      • Try adding pockets
      • Do adjustable straps with bra ring and slider
