Jaime's Wiksten Shift Top x 2

Jaime has already sewn up a batch of Wiksten Shifts, including two top versions that are perfect for summer. Read more for info on the Black Silk version and the Nani Iro Linen version with 3/4-length sleeves. We love seeing how this top sews up in two very different fabrics.

Pattern: Wiksten Shift Top Short Sleeve Version
Size Made: 6side view of wiksten shift pattern tshirt viewMy first Wiksten Shift was a simple black top. I had this sandwashed silk cut and waiting for a shirt, and this pattern was the perfect fit. It is simple enough to not be too fiddly and the design is classic enough to be worn for a long time. I decided to handstitch the neckline down as I didn't trust the machine with this slick fabric. I love this top. I feel like the fabric elevates my daily uniform to a slightly more sophisticated look, which is totally what I was going for.

Why yes, I will make a Nani Iro Shift shirt! I chose to try the 3/4 sleeve this time. Still love it. This crisp linen was so much easier to work with on the hems and neckline than my first silk top. me's Nani Iro Linen Wiksten Shift Tee Top full view
