Wiksten Tank

Right, I made these a little while ago and they have been well worn. So I better thought I should post them when they were ironed and looking nice. They are the Wiksten Tank, I wasn't sure of the sizing after reading what size other people had made. I am a medium normally so I made the medium but it was a bit big even around my boobs, so I took it in all over and it fit better. The second one I made the small which fitted much better, I just had the make the arm hole a bit bigger. When tracing out the pattern you can adjust is accordingly.
 I love triangles and had to make it with this fabric, I love it and wear it heaps.
 This one I made with a sheer fabric, I was happy with how it turned out. And these tops are everywhere in the shops now, this one is much cheaper though.
 I made this skirt from the seersucker I bought at the op shop the other day for $2. I love the colours, and I wore it on that stinking hot day last week and it was nice a cool.
Me in my Wiksten tanks, I am so making more. I might even try the longer dress version too.
