This Purple Plaid Woven Version of the Vienna Tank has come to be my Favorite Summer Top!
Itch to Stitch it was a game changer!
So much more Dressier than a T-Shirt don't you think?
While the Vienna Tank is meant for Knit fabrics (except for the yoke, which is in Woven fabric), it can very easily be sewn up in a lightweight woven fabric. An easy Vertical Front Adjustment is used if making a C cup bust size or larger. For info on how to do this see my post The Vienna Tank - Using All Woven Fabric.
The Vienna Tank has great features like a Yoke, which can be made in matching or contrasting fabric for a Color Blocking look.
Soft Gathers in the Center Back and Shoulder Seams make this Top loose and flowing without being over-big.
A cute bias cut ruffle can be added or left off, depending on your choice. I added one to this particular one!
And it's a Fast Sew, not more than about 2 hours from start to finish.
So far, I've made 3 Vienna Tanks . One from knit fabric and two from woven fabric. But I must admit this particular one is my Favorite! The Fabric Choice is what makes is so Terrific!
It's sewn from a Lightweight Cotton Shirting. So Cool and Comfortable I wish I had one for everyday! If I find more fabric like this I soon will!
So, what about you? Does the Vienna Tank sound interesting? Check it out and see if it dosen't become a Summer Favorite for You too!
