I finished hemming my Wiksten tank, with plans to wear it to a family barbecue this past weekend, but sadly when I went to get dressed, a problem became apparent.
See how the left shoulder in the photo is a bit higher than the other? Especially with my smallish shoulders, this translated to a really gape-y section.
It really sticks up. I think I like this top enough to unpick the neckline binding and try it again, but it’s discouraging. Gotta keep practising, right?
I do have another garment project on the go – a simple A-line skirt with elastic waistband, in a cotton/linen blend that’s been in my stash for ages. Skirts are one project that I’ve successfully made in the past, they’re mostly easy and easier to fit. I haven’t decided whether to do a casing for elastic, or a jersey/”yoga” waistband. No pattern, I just traced around a skirt I like!
I did receive some awesome fabrics from Tonic Living that I ordered last week! They mostly carry heavier home decor fabrics but have some great quilting cottons and organic jersey as well. I couldn’t resist the top print, “Ragg Tagg” by Daisy Janie. It’s organic and a bit on the stiffer side – it’ll probably end up as a quilt, I think.
The rest of the stack is Painters Canvas by Laura Gunn for Michael Miller. The Lime on the bottom will be the binding for the chevron quilt.
