Vienna Tank from Itch to Stitch

Today I get to tell you about another new pattern release, the Vienna Tank pattern* from Itch to Stitch*.

*This post contains affiliate links, which are marked with an asterisk. I may earn a small commission if you purchase through these links, but it does not affect the price to you. Thank you for your support of this blog.

I love all the patterns from  Itch to Stitch* because they are well drafted, true to size, and the garments are always nicely finished. This one, of course, is no exception. 

The Vienna Tank* is designed for using a woven fabric with the yoke and a knit for the main body fabric. (Some people may even be able to get away with doing the whole shirt in woven, if your cup size isn't too big). This gives you lots of options and uses relatively small amounts for both fabrics, so there are all kinds of possibilities. I made this one with a rayon challis yoke and a rayon/spandex jersey knit for the body. I love the drapey knit here. 

The fit of the top is roomy and slightly cropped, which is so in right now. Gathers at the back and shoulders help to give the top some shaping. The front opens at the neckline and has ties, so that it can be worn open or tied.

I love all the cute details included in the pattern. I made view A, which has a small ruffle at the neck. I am not usually much for ruffles, but I kind of fell in love with the ruffle on this one. Also on view A, the reverse of the fabric is turned to the outside and used as an accent down the front. I love the subtle effect shown with this particular fabric. View B omits the ruffle, enclosing the neckline seam in a bias binding, and the the fabric is turned to the inside on the front seam so that only the top-stitching is visible.

Get your Vienna Tank pattern* for 20% off through June 13th! And all Itch to Stitch* patterns are 15% off if you purchase two or more.

    1. Thanks so much. I am surprised at how much I like that ruffle, too. :)

  2. I have some rayon challis left from a maxi skirt - hope mine turns out as well as yours!!

    1. Thanks. The rayon challis is great for this project. I would love to see what you make!
