Random stash fabric (maybe from Spotty remnant bin years ago)?
I promised myself earlier in the year to take more time to sew clothes for me.
I was planning on making myself a new dress to wear to B-Fab's upcoming wedding, but I haven't had the mojo to take on a big project like that at the moment, and there's about a billion non-crafty things being organised in the background at the moment that have had to take priority.
So for some reason last week, I also decided that I wanted to make myself a simple top. I found the Grainline Tank and the Wiksten Tank online (both are downloadable - yah!)
I ended up choosing the Wiksten Tank as that also has an option for a longer tunic style top/dress.
For some reason, they both have tiny pockets on the boob. Call me crazy, but who wants a boob pocket? I don't need to be drawing any more attention there! So, as you can see, I eliminated the boob pocket on mine.
I'm assuming that the instructions have been written for those that don't have an overlocker as you sew a seam, then fold over and sew another seam (I also topstitched the seams as I think it looks nice). For my next one, I'll just sew and overlock. Easy peasy.
I also took the lazy option and just used pre-made bias binding. I have a tonne in the stash, and my local oppy also has another tonne.... so I'll never run out!
This is the XL size, and it's a bit big but nice and comfy. I think I'll try a L next.... and I just happened to find the perfect fabric for it at Spotty today!
