crotch + wrinkles = crinkles

This week has been a little hard. How hard? Returning to teaching after an 8 week break hard. Work and training has taken up a large chunk of my week, and that’s okay because I like both these things. But they haven’t left a lot of time for sewing.

So in the absence of new shiny sewn things, I thought I’d share some old projects.┬áThese are two outfits I wore this week. Not feeling the style vibe? I wasn’t feeling it either. The Clover pants had some fitting issues (namely being I cut a size too small) and the A line skirt just isn’t me.

I’m not ready to give up on the Clovers yet, especially after seeing these ones. I need to address the dreaded crotch lines and I think sizing up will solve this.

I do however adore the Wiksten Tank, made here from a stripy silk purchased at Tessuti Fabrics. There are many amazing versions of this tank and I don’t feel I have anything new to add in the way of a review. I do plan on making a dress version soon to layer for the cooler months.
