The Sewcial Lounge. And there was a birthday (Michael's!) in between! I did manage to squeeze in a fair bit of sewing though! Hope you all had a good week!
I finally got my hands on the Wiksten Tank Pattern by Jenny Gordy this past week. I wasted no time and sewed this one up with some Echo fabric by Lotta Jansdotter. It fit okay, and I accidentally cut the front and back pieces going different directions, but it's still wearable at least! I added darts to the back to help with the fit, and I plan to wear it mostly under cardigans, so no one has to know about the upside down fabric, haha!
matched up the pocket perfect just like Karyn does! It was a very proud moment! I think I'll be making a lot of these tanks!
Contemporary Cloth! I'm freaking out over the umbrella print, isn't it adorable!?
