Double Layer MixIt Tank

I like to layer my clothing so I can adapt to seasonal changes or to temperature variations in buildings, and the one of the best garments to make for that purpose is a tank.

Creative Evolution

It's funny how things evolve. I cut out some fabric to make an Ikina Jacket, intending to leave the side flanges off and the side seams open. I got to the side seam step, felt a little blocked on the engineering of it, so I put the whole project away.

A month later, I picked it up to finish and decided that it needed a little spark. So Kathy rummaged through our remnants and found some hand-dyed silk that had some bits of colorful silks fused to it in strips.

Rain, rain, rain.....

It's finally beginning to rain again after a long, hot summer, so of course, I need a new raincoat. And why not a fabulous color to get the spirits up in the gloom.

For this purple coat, I used the new Project Sewing Workshop jacket pattern by Yvonne Porcella - the long and extended front view. The fabric is a Stretch Iridescent Taffeta available in a kit or by the yard from any Bernina dealer or online at www.projectsewingworkshop.com. I thought I might have trouble sewing it since it looked slippery and it stretches, but it was a breeze using my walking foot and a single hole throat plate.
