I have been seeing so many Wiksten Shifts on my Instagram feed since this pattern was released. I was really excited when I was asked to teach a class on this pattern next month so I was finally able to make one up!
The fabric: I couldn’t resist this mustard washed cotton from Oh Sew Shop. It’s a medium weight, has a nice bit of texture and I love the white printed wildflowers on it.
I made the short, short sleeve version of the dress with tie belt. There’s also a three quarter sleeve option, a longer version with a slit and a top. I am hoping to also make the top soon. I made the smallest size, with no fit adjustments other than hemming it an inch or two shorter.
It was a fairly quick and enjoyable sew. It’s also an easy dress to throw on! It’s perfect for these last days of summer but I know I’ll layer it up come fall.
