Surely y’all know I love to make skirts, or that at the moment they’re the item I’m brave enough to make. Anyway I finished my Wiksten tulip skirt on Saturday, it’s yet to be worn out of the house though.
I am so happy with it, the finish is really neat, and the denim is so soft. I worked really hard on the top-stitching and I think its pretty straight. I used top-stitching thread rather than regular, and boy does it play around with the tension. I also used gorgeous vintage buttons which I picked up here.
To set the record straight so far I have attempted a couple of tops. This one after seeing Sandra’s version, I made it too big and out of this awful filmy fabric that swished all over the place. I’m going to try it again in a jersey next, perhaps I’m a sucker for punishment. And I also made a smashing smock. I always seem to overestimate my top size. Hopefully soon I’ll have a finished top to show. Your only likely to see it though, if it is a. really good, or b. so bad its funny.
