Cotton and Steel Wiksten

Yes kids, it’s Wiksten number 4 (see number 1, number 2 and number 3)!  And I have no intention of slowing down on this pattern.  This one is made with a gorgeous print from Cotton and Steel, which I purchased at Grey’s Fabric and Notions.

I really love this print- I fell in love with it as soon as I saw it at Grey’s, and wasn’t able to resist buying it.

The pattern has two variations- a tank and a dress, and as you can see I made the dress version.  I didn’t like how wide it was when I first stitched it up, so I took quite a bit of width out of the side seams to narrow it out.  Rather than flat felling the seams, I just serged them all, and the neckline and armholes are finished with bias tape.
