The Possibilities...

July 2023

We want to draw your attention to a gorgeous tank top called Santorini by the Itch to Stitch pattern company. This top is made from a woven fabric. It is closely fitted. The fit is very flattering and is achieved with the princess seams that start from the neckline. The seams are slightly contoured which makes the top hug the body in a very flattering way. The top also has a button closure in the side seam, which adds utility as well as a visual interest. 

This pattern is a digital download. It comes in multiple sizes and in multiple cup sizes. These options should allow you to customize the fit fairly easy. This link will show how this top looks on different body types: Santorini Pattern Testers. As a bonus, this pattern comes with instructions for attaching the facing using a burrito method. You will be able to learn a new transferable skill if you have not used this method before. The burrito method can be applied to other sewing tasks too, for example a clean-finish of a shirt yoke, etc.
Lets take a look at some possible fabrics that can be used for this top. As you can see from the tops that were made by the testers, this top looks good both is solid fabrics and in prints. We recommend using light and medium weight fabrics with moderate drape.
