Size Chart

Bellavista Top PDF Sewing Pattern Body Measurements

Choosing Your Size

  1. Compare your bust circumference (fullest part) to the “Body Measurements” table. Choose the size that best fits your bust. If your cup size is D or larger, you may wish to go down one size. If you are between sizes, choose the smaller size if you like your garment more fitted; otherwise, choose the bigger size. This should be the size you use for the entire garment.
  2. Because of the swing silhouette, the waist and hip of the garment will be very relaxed with plenty of ease. But to be safe, check the waist and hip measurements in the “Finished Garment Measurements” table and be sure that your waist and hip can be fitted in the size chosen. If not, you can blend to a larger size at the waist and hip.
  3. If you are taller or shorter than 5’6” (168 cm), you should consider lengthening or shortening the top (see instructions for details).

I highly recommend that you check your fit by making a test garment with inexpensive fabric that has similar weight and stretch as your final garment fabric.


Primary Fabric Four-way stretch knit fabric with at least 50% horizontal stretch and 25% vertical stretch. French terry, cotton Lycra jersey and double brush poly are good choices. If using rayon spandex knit, you may need to go down one size or more. Do not use woven fabric.

Other Material

  • 10" (26 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.

    Love the Bellavista Top

    The Bellavista Top is a great, quick and easy to make pattern. The only issue that I had is that the back is a little bit wide. I will fix this on the pattern for the next top.

  2. Anne (verified owner)

    easy and attractive

  3. hollymabe (verified owner)

    Very flattering and comfortable.

  4. Elaine (verified owner)

    I have made up the top and am very pleased with it. However, piecing the pattern pieces together was troublesome. Even though I had checked that the printed pages fitted with the inch square as instructed, the pages did not fit together well.

      Hi Elaine, make sure that you choose “Auto Portrait/Landscape” in your print dialog box. Cheers!

    My go-to sweatshirt for fall and winter. How to be cosy and feminine and classy… Many ways to sew it depending on the fabric!

    I am so, so pleased with my make. It fits lovely, and is very flattering. The pattern was easy to follow and I can’t wait to make another top and try out some more itch to stitch patterns. Thankyou

    I love this turtle neck top. It was quick and easy to make and looks fantastic. I am a large busted person so the next one I make I’m going to lengthen the pattern by a few centimetres.
