    This is the only top I have yet sewn from the ones I purchased was OK but not perfect for my body type, next sew will be perfect however. Instructions for assembly very precise and perhaps more suited to woven fabrics.
    The experience of choosing patterns somewhat ruined by trying to navigate the website due to being delayed by “web crawler protection” for a minimum of half a minute every time I tried to even see a different view of the same model I was looking at. In the end it just got too hard to bother looking at all the patterns.

    Love the style. I am a senior sewer and like a little more ease in waist so will size up next time. Very unique

  3. Mariska (verified owner)

    I have made up a wearable toile of this and it fits me well for my body size. I am pleased with it and will make more of this pattern.

  4. Gail (verified owner)

    Pleased with how top fits excellent clear instructions

  5. Nancy (verified owner)

    Nice pattern, good explenation, great 🙂

  6. Deborah (verified owner)

    Just finished the dress….it looks great❤️ Love the pattern. It’s a style I normally don’t wear (form fitting) but seeing your lovely testers wear theirs gave me the encouragement. Let them know how much I appreciate their involvement in the testing.

  7. Helena (verified owner)

    Clear instructions to follow.

  8. Anne (verified owner)

    love all your patterns

  9. Joan (verified owner)

    I love this top & was surprised how easy the neckline was to do thanks to the excellent instructions. I’ll be making more!!

  10. Heather (verified owner)

    Best fitting t’shirt I’ve made. I’ve made 4 already

  11. Kathryn (verified owner)

    I made the dress with a striped jersey from my stash, bodice stripes horizontal and skirt stripes vertical. I’m very pleased with the result. I made the full bust size 10 and was going to grade to 12 at the waist and hips but ended up sticking to the 10 as it was fine. I did add a binding over the clear elastic at the waist as I found it uncomfortable on my skin. I also shortened the skirt by about 2” as I’m only 5’2”.

  12. sheryl (verified owner)

    perfect

  13. Janet (verified owner)

    This is my 1st ITS make and I did get a wearable muslin the 1st time out. Used the full bust front, size 6 on top and out to 16 by the waist. did a 3/8″ narrow shoulder adjustment & it was just not quite enough – probably need a 1/2″. Fit as good except for a bit of excess fabric at the front underarm just above bust. I think maybe if I did a petite adjustment that might eliminate that. All in all, for a top without a bust dart, I was pleased.

  14. Martha (verified owner)

    I love itch-to-stitch patterns. The styles are great. The directions are very well done. The patterns are layered and I know just which pages to print. I love the individual cup sizes. I have been sewing for about 50 years! And these are the best patterns I have ever worked with

  15. Bronwyn (verified owner)

    Very happy with my purchase

  16. Colleen (verified owner)

    I made both the top and the dress in just a couple days, and I have plans to sew a couple more. Such a great pattern!

    Love the neckline

  21. Deborah (verified owner)

    The pattern looks excellent, from all the tester’s blogs I’ve reviewed. I am excited to sew this very popular pattern. I have not yet cut out the pattern. Based on my bust, waist and hip measurements, I will be using the Full Bust size 24 (52″). However, my biceps are not that large and I personally will have to figure out how to greatly scale down the width of the raglan sleeves to approximately a bicep of 14″ (approximately finished size 8-10). Can you give me any tips for this sizing issue I am faced with? I have never sewn a raglan sleeve before. Much thanks for the expanded sizing you have provided!

    • Kennis Wong (store manager)

      Hi Deborah, I would search for “full bicep adjustment raglan sleeve”, and you should have quite a number of tutorials. I know you need to make the bicep narrower, so you would do the opposite of full bicep adjustment.

  22. Jeannette (verified owner)

    Love the design!

  23. Anonymous (verified owner)

    As with all of Kennis’ patterns her fit and directions are detailed and foolproof if you take your time. This is a beautiful square-neck top or dress. Few patterns out there with this neck style.
    I also feel a little disappointed in that the base style of this top and dress is similar to the Orosi top and dress in her book. It seems to be missing some of the extras I have come to know with other Itch to Stitch patterns and that make them stand out- extra sleeve detail options, pockets maybe, unique style etc.

  24. Valerie (verified owner)

    It’s a lovely pattern

  25. Laura (verified owner)

    Itch to Stitch Patterns are my new favorites! I thought I was going to have to resort to drafting my own patterns and I am not well trained. But the more I try or ITS, the more I am impressed. I love the Tierra joggers, the Seychelles, the Fortuna….I could go on and on. Kennis just knows what she is doing. She drafts with great knowledge for the figure flaws we all want to forget. And she helps us love ourselves in the meantime.

  26. karen (verified owner)

    Great fit. Super easy

  27. Kristin (verified owner)

    I fell in love with the neckline as soon as I saw this pattern. The instructions were easy to follow, my finished shirt fit me perfectly, and the neckline is so flattering. I will be making more!

  28. Elizabeth (verified owner)

    Beautiful top and dress pattern that can easily be dressed up or down with fabric choice. Excellent instructions as well!

  29. April (verified owner)

    I enjoy every pattern I purchase at Itch to Stitch

  30. andrea (verified owner)

    Love the new way the pdf patterns are put together. Lovely pattern, simple and classic but with a bit of a twist

  31. Kelly (verified owner)

    I love the neckline on this top and using Karina from lifting pins and needles tutorial it was so easy to do the corners. Need to make the dress next!

  32. linda (verified owner)

    Love this top thank you

  33. Brigetta (verified owner)

    I made a muslin and I love it. It fits perfectly with minimal adjustments (had to grade to a bigger hip size only). Can’t wait to start making my top and dress this weekend

  34. Myra (verified owner)

    love your patterns

  35. Helen (verified owner)

    A joy to sew this, a great experience as a first time customer, and I am recommending this pattern to all my sewing community.

  36. Stephanie (verified owner)

    Easy to fit perfectly! Flattering and comfortable.

  37. Susan (verified owner)

    Love this pattern. Beautiful !

  38. Faith (verified owner)

    I love this pattern! I’ve made both top and dress and really enjoyed the entire process particularly since I’d never done a square neckline before. The instructions were awesome and the sizing was perfect. The dress in particular is very flattering both with the neckline and the amount of gathering in the skirt. It isn’t bulky or heavy. Another fabulous pattern!!

  39. Denise (verified owner)

    Great instructions and fit!

  40. Monica (verified owner)

    Love Love the semi square neck pattern. I made 3 Glenellys so far and will be making more.

  41. Kate (verified owner)

    I love every Itch to Stitch pattern I’ve tried so far. The fit is perfect, the instructions are well written and detailed, and you get all the information you need to successfully sew each garment. The Glenelly square neckline is perfection!

  42. Anonymous (verified owner)

    This top has a great fit and a flattering neckline. It was a quick sew even with the unusul neckline.

  43. V. Sharol (verified owner)

    I made the dress version out of a ity jersey fabric. It is amazing. I made it in a 10 (no adjustments) full bust and it fits perfectly. I struggle to find patterns that fit both bust and hips, and this one works. I struggled with the facing on the neckline, but that was because I didn’t read the directions carefully enough. A good night’s sleep, and it went together perfectly. Thanks for the wonderful pattern. I’m going to do it as a top next.

  44. Gillian (verified owner)

    As with all Itch to Stitch patterns, this is beautifully drafted.
    I love all the patterns I have purchased from I to S.

  45. Diane (verified owner)

    Great pattern and fun make as always from Kennis! 😎

How to choose your size

  1. Determine if you should use the regular bust front pieces or the full-bust front pieces—subtract the circumference of your over bust from the circumference of the fullest part of your bust. If the rounded difference is 3″ (7.5 cm) or less, use regular bust; if it is more than 3" (7.5 cm), use full bust.

  2. Compare your bust circumference (fullest part) to the “Body Measurements” table. Using the corresponding row for your bust (regular bust or full bust), 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.

  3. 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.

  4. 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.

  5. It’s OK to use different sizes for the bust, waist and hip. The instructions for blending sizes are included in the pattern.

  6. 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.
