A New Tank for Summer

Shortly before my big gallbladder adventure, I got three pieces of Liberty of London’s Tana Lawn to make Wiksten tanks.  I got them all cut out in a single day, but they each needed a different color of thread to sew them up.  I made the first tank in March, and wore it to the Cinderella movie, and then got miserable and ended up in the hospital.  The other two tanks have been sitting in my sewing room, all cut out, with their bias binding pieces waiting for me.  Now I’ve made the second tank!
I used off white thread for this one because neither red or pink looked right.  (While the fabric looks like red with white flowers, it’s actually hot pink with off white flowers and red leaves.)  I also did a rolled hem on this tank, and I will be doing rolled hems on all future tanks - it’s so easy.  I’ve got the thread set out for my third tank, I’ll just need a few hours to get it made.

Oh, and in case you were concerned that once I finish the third tank I would be out of Tana Lawn (oh, the horrors), there’s more on its way, as we speak.  This tank is perfect year round for the climate here in North Texas and it layers under cardigans (of which I’ve knit a few) really well!
