Wiksten Tank v2 Saddleback Birds *Finished Object*

I am having somewhat of a Wiksten week this week! I have three to show you all.

This is the first of my collection, I got this fabric as a pregnancy gift from The Fabric Godmother, what a gem! I loved this fabric too, the animals! I just love the birds. There is also this and this in the bird theme on the website at the moment.

Actually, all the fabrics I have used for these Wiksten's are from The FabricGodmother... Because I just love what they stock! Have a look at the cotton ranges, pure class!

Anyways, I was very grateful of this gift but in my current 'state', I'm all about maternity clothes at the moment and slightly in love with my pattern that I made with the Wiksten Tank. FG was kind enough to give a metre of this lovely fabric, however I needed just over a metre to make a Tank.


Using the selvege as a guide I used the colour indicators to know that there was black in there. So I made the front as usual with the 10 cm increase in length and 4 cm girth increase.

Then, I added a black band to the back to make a 1m x 1m piece of fabric go into my desired form of a Wiksten Tank.

I am overjoyed with the result, it's exactly what I need for my purpose. I wear to work...

Ugg Boots
Long Cardigan...

... Long Top.

I'm a nurse, so I spend my working day in uniform. I'm pregnant, so I need to comfort and utility. I'm vain, so I want my clothes to look nice, unique and 'Bundana'. These wants lead me to one conclusion... Wikstens are exactly what I need!

Over this week I will be putting on the three Wikstens that I've made, I love the versatility of it!

Take care
