I absolutely LOVE this top. Cute, full of options, great size range, easy to whip up in a few hours max; the perfect warm weather sew. Vienna is designed for a knit body and woven yoke, but I can tell you that lots of the ladies testing the pattern opted to do a completely woven version and they all turned out looking fantastic. I can also tell you that almost all of us testing immediately jumped into making a second version as soon as the first one was done.
Another perk with this pattern is that you can use smaller cuts of fabric. My friend sent me a parcel of fabric delights from Japan recently and one of the pieces was a sweet little cotton lawn print. I adore the fabric. From a distance it looks like just a floral print. Pretty enough alright, but then hello! Who's that peeking out from the flowers? A polar bear!!!! How much fun is that?!?! I only had half a metre of my precious polar bear in the flower garden fabric, and wondered what I could do with it. With a print that fun I knew I wanted to have it in a garment somehow. Then the testing call came out for Vienna and I knew exactly what I was going to do! It was the perfect place to showcase it!
My first version used a cotton/spandex blend t-shirt knit for the main body and a cotton plaid for the yoke.
My second version used a drapey bamboo/spandex knit for the main body and cotton lawn for the yoke.
I highly recommend getting your hands on Vienna, which just so happens to be on sale right now for 20% off, and then run, don't walk to your sewing machine and get some fun new shirts in your wardrobe for summer!!
