Top Refashion - Ogden Cami

Time for a refashion, a top which has lots of embroidered details and I love those details but the top wasn't getting worn.  I decided to refashion it into a Ogden Cami.

Here is the original top and it looks great on but you cannot raise your arms, the sleeves really limit the motion.  When you do get the arms lifted, then you can see right down the top.  (McCall's 7780)

I did have to cut the top the other way, so the roses are in a different direction, from the sleeves I was able to cut the straps.

The hem was short and thanks to a suggestion from @gmariesews I used bias binding for the hem

This is the first time ever I made the Ogden.  I am going to make it a bit smaller in the bust and hips.  Also, I will make the straps a bit shorter.

All in all I am thrilled to have a garment that I will wear instead of just admiring it my closet


  1. Great save! Now you have something that's not only pretty but practical as well!

    1. Thanks, Shelley, I am so happy with the refashion.

  2. What a great idea. Aren’t you glad you can sew?

  3. My wish right now is that God should continue to bless Dr Emu for his good works towards the life of those people who are heart broken. My name is Michael DeBruin and I am from the USA, it's been a while since my lover's attitude changed from being the caring type she has been to me, but later turned out not to be caring at all. But not long, I later discovered that my lover was having an affair with someone else. and also she told me she doesn't need me after all we pass through then a friend told me about a spell caster. that with the spell I will get back my woman, I took his cell number then called him and also what's-app him which he reply to me and I did some sacrifices to the spell man and he bought the items for me which he used for the sacrifices and later called me that before 48 hours my love will come back to me and now we are more in love with each other than ever. you can reach him on WhatsApp +2347012841542 or reach him via mail ; , my lover returned back and broke up with the other guy she was having a relationship with... Thank you Dr Emu.
