I did come home with something when I visited the other weekend...
The Wiksten Tank! I've seen the finished product online and I LOVE how it fits - all flowy and such. It's a very pretty and flattering tank, so I thought I'd pick up the pattern and whip a few up before the summer comes around (I know, I know...I live in Ontario, I've got a while...)
I did make one minor mistake when I was there...the fabric that I chose is too heavy...It's a linen cotton blend and I don't think it's going to drape very well without being kinda crunchy, ya know? No harm done, really; I'm sure I can find another use for a beautiful linen blend, but I really wanted to make my tank! The only fabric I had enough of was this really bright, florally one that I found at a thrift store last year. So, I made it, decided to make some alterations to my pattern (length, mainly) and bought some voile to use for my second attempt. Here's the finished product!

Unfortunately, this thank might be stored in my closet for a while...yesterday was the first day of Spring and it was snowing. Getting a little tired of this snow! Though, all things considered, I really can't complain. Last year at this time here in Bowmanville it was almost 26 degrees Celsius (that's 78 degrees Fahrenheit) so we were spoiled for a time (though my Magnolia tree was completely confused...).
Here's hoping for warmer weather! :)
