The Vienna Tank - Using All Woven Fabric

Ok, so you know I love the Vienna Tank by Itch to Stitch.

Today I'd like to show you how it looks in all woven fabric instead of a knit.

Vienna Tank in Woven Fabric
 In these photos I have just come back from the Hair Salon getting a trim, so there are some real life wrinkles!

The fabric is a lightweight shirting.  

This time around I chose to add the optional bias cut ruffle to the neckline, since the plaid fabric looks so sweet cut on the bias!

To make the Vienna Tank from all Woven Fabric a Vertical Front Width Adjustment is needed if you are a C cup or larger in the Bust.(Sometimes a C cup can get away without this adjustment, but its usually more comfortable with it).

A Vertical Front Width Adjustment is Simple!!  Just add around 1 inch to the front pattern piece from the middle of the shoulder seam straight down to the hem!  It's that simple!!

This opens up wonderful possiblilites for fabric choices for the Vienna Tank.  Just remember to choose lightweight woven fabric so it drapes well.

And by the way the Vienna Tank looks Fabulous with Sweaters for cooler times in the evening!

If you haven't gotten your copy of the pattern yet here's the link to it...

Happy Sewing!!
