Here's another of my last-of-the-summer sewing projects - a Wiksten tank.
After experimenting with my wispy dress version of this pattern, I wanted to have a go at the tank version as I know I'll get a lot more wear out of the shorter style.
I found this navy blue and white fabric on the fabric remnants stall in the Lewisham Market for £2/m. When I first saw it I thought "I'm not sure if I like this crazy Zig Zag Zebra pattern... but I think I kinda like it!"
I cut the tank pattern as is and used pre-made bias tape to make life even easier. It was satisfyingly quick to put together.
It's such an easy relaxed top to wear and I have already worn it a lot. I have discovered that the fabric has impressive creasing abilities but I'm pretending that the crumpliness is not shabby, it's sculptural - like a 3D interpretation of the crazy pattern. This way I can further justify my non-iron stance towards my clothing. Phew!
