You may remember my first finished Wiksten tank, which I love on the hanger, but it's not very flattering to wear. That makes me sad, but it's flattening in some places and widening in others. I haven't given up on it yet, but this is why you haven't seen a modeled shot.
Shortly after I finished the first, though, I cut into some Tina Given's voile from her Haven's Edge collection.
This version fits much better. It drapes, it's flattering, and so comfortable. I'm glad I had the foresight to make sure those shapes were vertical rather than horizontal, or this one might be in that same widening category. I intend to give this pattern another go, and I'd like to add sleeves like this awesome version.
In the photo, you can also see some of the lovely mini quilts I've acquired from friends. From left to right, the Love one is from Tammy, The feather is from Amanda, the super scrappy is from Sara, the green one is from Shapemoth in the FTLOS swap, and the one on the end is from Jessica.
Unrelated (and possibly enabling), but have you seen these Riley Blake Ombre Dots?
I picked up this half yard in Orange (along with a few other stash enhancements, ahem!) from Stash Fabric. I really like the scale of these dots! I may have to acquire a few other colors... Speaking of dots, I'm pretty crazy about the new Tula Pink Birds and the Bees dots, too.
