Silk Window Tank Top

Added Jul 20, 2014

Portland, Oregon...






I made this tank top from Simplicity 1589 view A. This is a Learn to Sew pattern from the company, and even though I am an experienced sewer, I still enjoy simple patterns that give nice results. I love how you make the “window” in the back of the tank using sort of separate side yoke pieces attached to the top of the back and shoulder. This lends itself well to do some cute insets of a coordinating or contrasting fabric which I would like to try next time I make this pattern. It was a fun and fast sew using just 1 1/2 yards of fabric.

Material Notes

100% silk charmeuse
