    I made Bellavista for my pregnant belly. I added length to the back and side fronts, so I could wear it with leggings too. I didn’t have to make it any larger to fit my baby bump. I also added invisible zippers to the front so I could use it for nursing. It’s a great pattern for all the pregnant ladies who don’t want to make too many changes to the patterns, but still want to be comfortable in their clothes 🙂

    Love love love!

    This top has such beautiful drape. Fits perfectly.

  4. Anonymous (verified owner)

    Great fun pattern.

  5. Delphine (verified owner)

    it’s a lovely top. Princess seams is a must for an extraordinary fitting. Cowl neck gives a nice touch to it too

  6. Jean (verified owner)

    Love the cowl neckline and the “not cowl” option

  7. Ann (verified owner)

    I absolutely love this pattern – have made 3 so far! Kennis’ very clear instructions guided me through my first experience with sweater knits with excellent results. The 00 is a tad roomy on me (5’1″ and very petite) but I like the swingy fit and also like the length just as it is. (Did a narrow shoulder adjustment and shortened the arms though.) The cowl adds style and keeps you warm!

  8. Cynthia (verified owner)

    I love the top, easy and fast. A top to make when you need something very stylish quickly to make you feel good.

  9. K L Nield (verified owner)

    Lovely, loose fitting top. I didn’t have enough fabric so mine is sleeveless with a less generous cowl. I’m really looking forward to making the full version!

  10. Stephanie (verified owner)

    I love the neck

  11. karen (verified owner)

  12. Rosemary (verified owner)

    A very flattering neckline.

  13. Rebecca (verified owner)

    This is a quick project with clear directions. I look forward to gifting the finished shirt to my friend.

    Flattering shape and design lets me use smaller pieces of special fabrics

    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.

  18. Anne (verified owner)

    easy and attractive

  19. hollymabe (verified owner)

    Very flattering and comfortable.

  20. 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!

  22. (verified owner)

    I love ? this pattern. I’ve made 4 tops already. It firs like a dream! Muriell

  23. Anonymous (verified owner)

    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

  24. k.l.mcintosh (verified owner)

    I love this pattern, great instructions and easy to make. The finished garment looks and feels great.

  25. Christina (verified owner)

    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.

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.
