Here’s a dump of photos of the Wiksten TanksÂ I’ve made.
#1. This is the first one I made. I sewed it without prewashing the fabric first. BIG MISTAKE! It became like a vegetable. Plus the neckline is too low 😦 I’ve still worn it a couple of times. Mostly to sleep.
#2. This is the one I made at The Workroom during the Wiksten Tank class. Made me want to ditch our Singer machine for a Bernina! Not happening any time soon though! The fabric is some quilting cotton covered in poppies, which I realize might be sort of inauspicious. I like it anyway.
#3. This is the one I made out of some adorable fabric covered in seals!
#4. And this again is the dress with the upside-down fish, taken somewhere within Forbidden City during our trip to Beijing.
I’ve since learned this magical trick for cutting a continuous piece of bias tape, as well as this handy way of making bias tape without a bias tape maker (although I bought one yesterday!).
