A Wiksten Upcycle

I had a pair of white linen pants with a trim down the side seams. They were wide legged, and too small. Since I had seen the Sorbetto with the trim down the front, I figured I could upcycle the pant legs of these linen pants using the trim as a central trim on the front of the Wiksten.  The Wiksten is a simple tank top pattern for a beginner – no darts, just simple sewing.  Here’s how it turned out…

In this pic you can see the trim from the side seams on the front.

Hard to believe this tank was a pair of pants, right ?!
