i love warm weather because it adds two living spaces to our house: the front porch and the "back yard." we are city dwellers so a back yard doesn't mean quite the same thing that it meant to me growing up in the woods, but i spent a lot of time cleaning up and planting this weekend. im looking forward to documenting progress throughout the summer!

nothing has made me happier over the past few Saturdays than waking up early, sewing, and going for a long run when it warms up outside. and now.... wiksten the second, washed and pressed:
this guy is a thrifted-fabric tank, with a slightly embellished pocket. i used grainline's very helpful tutorial for the bias tape. i highly recommend it... this garment looks Profesh.

slipstitching the yoke to the bodice is slow but nice because we can watch deadwood while i do it. i had to completely make the yoke twice-- the first time i was careless and nothing lined up correctly. second time through i was vigilant with measuring and now its perfect.
