Wiksten Tank in Ikat

So my selfish sewing didn’t go exactly the way I had planned.  I bought the Wiksten Tank pattern which I first saw (and loved) here and then I noticed it popping up everywhere!  It’s such a cute top and pretty flattering for different body types.

I bought this Ikat printed fabric, Amy Butler’s Kasbah in Midnight Blue from her Lark Collection.  I’ve noticed that Ikat style prints have gotten pretty popular and thought it’d be a fun springy top.

But then I decided to make it for my sister instead.  Oops!

I couldn’t help it.  She’s just so cute that I thought this would be perfect for her!

I think she likes it.  She better, because I sacrificed some super cute fabric that was supposed to be mine!

As for me, I’m making my own Wiksten tank, but I had a different idea for the fabric.  I’m almost done, but I’m not sure that I like it.  It was a little bit of a wild idea and I don’t think I can pull it off!  But we’ll see and if it’s not totally awful, I’ll show you later this week.

  1. So cute! Way to go with the adult sewing! Sometimes it is easier to practice on other people before trying something for yourself too, you know? But this looks great on your sister, she’s adorable. Can’t wait to see yours!
