Wiksten Love

Alright, so maybe I joined the Wiksten Tank sewing community a little late but it sure is nice to be here now!

In an effort to grow my handmade wardrobe and after the relative success of my Colette Violet, I decided a simple but flattering tank that I could make in a bunch of different fabrics would suit me nicely. 

I've had this lovely peacock feather cotton hanging around for over a year now that I knew wanted to become a cute top one day! Well done fabric, you made it! I've worn this a bunch of times already and I'm super pleased with it.

This is such a simple pattern - a back and front pattern piece and a pocket, french seamed together. Easy, peasy! It does also have pattern pieces for the bias binding but I took the easy way out and used some I had bought. 

I cut out pieces for Wiksten #2 last night so should have another by tomorrow - they're addictive and perfect for summer!
