When Ogden met Carolyn

Just a really quick post today which may not even be worth a mention but here we go anyway...

I thought I would just share how great a combination the True Bias Ogden Cami and the Closet Case Patterns Carolyn Pyjama shorts are for some summery PJs! A match made in heaven...

I actually made the Odgen cami in this Minerva Crafts turtle print last year at The Sewing Weekeneder. Needless to say it did not get worn however I couldn't bring myself to get rid of it. This print however lends itself rather well to PJs! Having made some winter Carolyn Pajamas I knew that the pattern fit well and so whipped up the shorts version at Norwich Sewcials Sew Day a couple of weeks back.

The best bit? Pockets of course!

The other little pattern hack I did which was seen on Instagram several weeks ago, was to make the Ogden Cami in drapey black viscose, and added a cross over back strap for detail. I love this version! This is my 5th Odgen! Made in a couple of hours it really is instant satisfaction...

  1. This is a perfect combination for this hot summer x

    1. Thanks - so far so good, a softer fabric required next time though! X

  2. I'm in love with the Ogden as well and have made two of them. I was thinking about using it for PJ's too. Do you have a tutorial for the cross over straps?

  3. Hi Faye - no tutorial but i just made some extra straps in the same way as the ogden ones are constructed - then simply pinned and stitched in place to the underside of the main shoulder straps, trimming the raw edges down so they didnt show :)

  4. These are absolutely stunning!! The patterns go so well together, and I love the fabric you used.
