Pattern deeds: Wiksten Tank dress. A simple shape tank top, curved hem and tiny pocket. All sewn in french seams, finished with self made bias binding. Perfect for summer.
Clearly too big. Low armholes drives me crazy! Wrong size. I recut the pattern size S on the front and xs on the back, lowered the neckline, adjusted for slopped shoulders and kept the size M length.
Fit is fantastic! I love how relaxed this feel but still sits nicely on the shoulders.
Instead of a narrow hem, I did a rolled hem on the overlocker with a contrasting thread. I had only a metre of this fabric from Classic textile. The pocket is tiny pokadots quilting cotton from Brazil.
This was perfect outfit to be worn during July heatwave when I taught at FQR. Yes, I’m so late on my makes. Instagram followers have seen a peak on my feed and from my students.
It’s that too OTT matching my nails to fabric?
