Wiksten Tank

Thanks to your well wishes and tips, my Wiksten tank is finished.  The pattern is very clearly written, and the details of this simple top really make it feel like a quality garment.  It has french seams and bias binding for the arms and neck, so there are no exposed seams.  The A line cut makes it really easy to wear too.

I made the size small, and it is pretty big on me.  Next time, I'll make an x-small.  I will also take an inch or so off the length, but I'm used to that, being petite.  I would say the pattern seems to run a bit big, so keep that in mind if you're thinking of making one.  
Did any eagle eyes out there spot the selvage on the fabric I used?
It's a piece from Denyse Schmidt's new line for Free Spirit, Chicopee, which will premiere at Quilt Market next week, where I will be wearing my Wiksten tank to help out in the DS Quilts booth.  That has to be the most exciting sentence ever to appear on this blog. It is so great to have market in KC this year.
If you're in town for market or a local modern quilter, be sure to stop by the Modern Meet Up Saturday the 19th at the Marriott.  There are tons of fantastic door prizes!  More details here.
