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.
