Is it possible to have comfort and style at the same time? With the Arenal Top, the answer is a resounding yes! Featuring a curved V neck and front yoke, the Arenal Top is a knit top fitted on the shoulders and arms with two bodices and hem options. You can venture into the swing bodice with a subtle handkerchief hem, or stay with the fitted bodice and the regular hem. Better yet, why not make one of each? The Arenal Top also comes in long and 3/4-length sleeves!

Arenal Top Features:

  • Curved V neck and a narrow neck band for a feminine touch
  • Front yoke for color blocking opportunity
  • Options of a swing bodice with subtle handkerchief high-low hem and a fitted bodice with regular hem
  • Options of long and 3/4-length sleeves
  • Layers feature (print only the sizes you need)

Material

Primary Fabric Use light to medium-weight knit fabric with at least 100% horizontal stretch and 30% vertical stretch. Jersey, viscose knit and stretch velvet with some drape and recovery are good choices. If using a fabric with more or less stretch, you may need to choose a smaller or larger size respectively. If using an extremely drapey knit, such as rayon or bamboo knit, you may need to go down a size and possibly stabilize the neckline with knit fusible interfacing. Avoid very structured knits. Do not use woven fabric.

Contrast Fabric Use light to medium-weight knit fabric with similar stretch as the primary fabric. Alternatively, you may also use the primary fabric as contrast.

Other Materials

  • 16" (41 cm) of 3/8" or 1/2" (1 cm or 1.25 cm)-wide straight fusible stay tape (or you may cut your own using lightweight woven fusible interfacing on the straight grain)

Fabric Requirements

Most natural fibers shrink in the wash; be sure to have enough fabric. The requirements below assume that the fabric is already pre-shrunk.

  1. Anonymous (verified owner)

    Classic and well drafted pattern

  2. Ophelia (verified owner)

    I have made two of these tops. I lengthened the bodice pieces by 2.5 cm. Very clear instructions and I love the fit – fitted on the top but looser on the bottom part. A fantastic cut.

    This is my third pattern from Itch To Stitch and all of them are great patterns. True to size with excellent instructions and a good fit. I was a bit concerned about the V neck but it was straight forward I am really happy with the final result.

    Love the neckline

  5. Stephanie Allen (verified owner)

    This is a fabulous knit top pattern! I’ve made three of them with plans to make more. It’s my new TNT knit top pattern! I am petite. Sometimes it’s difficult to find tops that fit my body, but no problems here. I love the way this top fits me. I’ve made my tops out of bamboo, modal and even cotton/lycra – just follow the instructions on sizing up or down if you’re going to use a fabric with more or less stretch.

How to choose your size

  1. Compare your bust circumference (fullest part) to the “Body Measurements” table, choose the size that best fits your bust. If you are between sizes, choose the smaller size if you like your garment more fitted; otherwise, choose the bigger size.
  2. Compare your waist circumference (narrowest part) to the “Body Measurements” table. Choose the size that best fits your waist. If you are between sizes, choose the smaller size if you like your garment more fitted; otherwise, choose the bigger size.
  3. Compare your hip circumference (widest part) to the “Body Measurements” table. Choose the size that fits your hip best. If you are between sizes, choose the smaller size if you like your garment more fitted; otherwise, choose the bigger size.
  4. It’s OK to use different sizes for the bust, waist and hip. The instructions for blending sizes are included in the pattern.
  5. If you are taller or shorter than 5’6” (168 cm), you should consider lengthening or shortening the garment. The instructions for lengthening or shortening are included in the pattern.
