Wiksten Tank top+dress pattern

Tank Top

I've just received in my mail, well in fact my neighbours have revived, a Wiksten pattern! This is my auto-present for my next birthday...
I'm in love with Jenny's work, her clothes are so delicate. 
Now the difficult part comes, which is: try to swing the top... I've never have done anything with patterns. All my DIY are done just with intuition, and it not always works out! So, I want to try to sew in a more "professional" way, and learn new tricks, I think this pattern is perfect for beginners because is detailed step by step! Let's see how it ends!! 
I'm afraid you'll have to wait a little to see the result, maybe weeks...  once again, thanks a lot for all your lovely comments! Have a good week!
Okada dress: This is another Wiksten dress which I'm in love with. 


  1. I'm looking forward to seeing your version. Even if we have to wait a little while ;)

  2. molt maco el vestit, pero la vista se m´en va cap al macramé!! Estic una mica obsessionada buscant-los a etsy i a ebay :)

  3. Oh I love that top...wish I could make anything like that myself!

  4. ooh can't wait to see the finished product! sounds like a great project, wish i were creative enough to attempt it!

  7. I have had that pattern sitting on top of my dresser for a few months, and I keep forgetting to try it! Well, maybe i'm not forgetting...I'm just so busy :) But I can't wait to see how yours turns out....hopefully it will inspire me to finally make mine!!!
