Wiksten Tank #9

Wiksten tank 
Yes, I've made another Wiksten Tank.  This time in linen.  Same pattern and sizing as the first eight Wiksten Tanks, but since the linen is a heavier weight fabric than the lawn and rayon I've used before, I didn't do French seams.  I serged the seams and then top stitched them down in a fake flat felled style.

The fabric is from Fabrics-Store.com, it's their IL019 Signature Finish in Bleached.  I'd been looking at their linens for a while, and when they offered this one at a steep discount for a five yard cut, I bought it.  I really like it and while I'm not sure if this color is quite opaque enough for a dress, a few linen tops are always useful in Texas.  One of the reasons I started with the tank was to figure out how see through it actually is when it's being worn.  Also, basic white tanks are useful in my wardrobe.

I actually almost put the pocket on this one.  (There is a pocket in the pattern, but in the nine I've made, none have had the pocket.)  I thought it might need something extra since it's a basic, soft white tank.  I also thought about adding a bit of embroidery to it, but in the end, decided to keep it basic.  If I decide it's too plain when I wear it, I can always add embroidery later.

Have a great weekend!  I'm going to wear my new tank!

I just bought the pattern!!!

Yours are all so cute. I don't think I'll be putting the pocket on mine either.

Have a great weekend!
