Spring Sewing: Wiksten Tank

      As previously mentioned last weekend found me at one of my favourite little fabric shops in Vancouver- Spool Of Thread- conveniently located just behind Robson Park. So while the Littles played in the park with Daddy I had a really good gander at all the new goodies in store- this is why I say the park is just plain convenient!

      I was thrilled to immediately spot the Wiksten tank pattern as soon as I walked in the door- I have been contemplating ordering this online but just wasn't sure how it would sew up & look on my frame- seeing it live in the store (sewn in a similar coloured fabric) made up my mind- this was the perfect summer pattern for me! Especially once I spotted the new Anna Maria Horner rayon fabric in this great coral shade- that fabric had me at hello! 

        This pattern sewed up so quickly and easily with simple, clean French seems- I feel this top can go from dressy to casual depending on fabric choice- I will definitely be making more in the near future. While the pattern was a bit of an investment I feel it was worth the splurge- I love the lines of this tank and the aforementioned ease of construction- this tank seriously took me an afternoon (full of demands from the Littles- read many interruptions!) to finish- the instructions are clear and concise.

     When I think of Summer dressing I think of easy, breezy, comfortable and simple- that is exactly what the Wiksten tank brings to the table! Now to get back to Spool Of Thread for more fabric!

P.S.- Summer also means renewing my love of painted toe nails- nicely matching my top!
