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.
