    I think the neckline is unique and perfect for my aesthetic and body type. ITS patterns always exceed my expectations.

  2. Suzy Hattaway (verified owner)

    Another beautiful Itch to Stitch pattern and a very quick and easy sew. Box darts add lovely shaping. Will definitely be making a few more!

  3. Carol (verified owner)

    I have so far made three of these in a weekso it hows what a comfy top it is. The pattern is well drafted and all comes together very easily.

  4. Susan Kreft (verified owner)

  6. Diane (verified owner)

    Very nice pattern and it is very flattering, as it brings the eye up toward your face!! :+)

  7. polly l maxwell (verified owner)

    Love this top, I’ve made it twice now, I love the neck
    line, it reminds me of something out of the 50’s.

  8. Lynda (verified owner)

    Cute top. A bit too much fabric on the front of my 8D attempt. I am going to try an 8c next.

  9. Vanessa (verified owner)

    I love how chic this pattern looks, and how it only takes a small amount of time to sew!! The funnel neckline is a stunningly unique feature!

  10. Bee (verified owner)

    Lovely pattern, immaculate drafting and an enjoyable sew. Really happy with the final result which I made in navy and red striped French terry. I’ll certainly make more 😁

  11. Haze (verified owner)

    Absolutely love it amazing fit, thank you so much

  12. angie (verified owner)

    Again, all I had to do with this pattern is shorten the sleeves and body. Very comfortable. Made it out of a light weight ponte.

  13. Laura (verified owner)

    I made the Gothenburg in a bamboo/cotton french terry and the funnel neck had just a nice bit of drape. Love the cup options and wonderful instructions!

  14. Janice (verified owner)

    Beautiful pattern as always!

  15. Brigetta (verified owner)

    Super easy sew with great results. I’m planning on making many more for winter (just waiting for the more weighty fabrics to arrive).

  16. Gay (verified owner)

    Always love your patterns.

  17. Barbara (verified owner)

    It’s a great pattern and I love getting it in pdf

  18. Anonymous (verified owner)

    The Gothenberg top is simplicity at its best. The simple lines hold great style detail. This top is a modern spin on a classic 60’s style. Based on the fabric you choose this can either be a cozy comfy casual top or a more work worthy wardrobe piece. The basic sewing lines make this a great beginner project yet should not be overlooked by the experienced sewer. It is a quick sew that can be traced, cut and sewn in an afternoon then worn to dinner in the evening. For a more sporty look add the thumb cuff from the Uvita top add on pattern and make out of an athletic weight fleece or wicking knit.

  19. Joy (verified owner)

    Great warm top !

  20. Barbara (verified owner)

    Thank you for the easy pattern. I’m so glad you have a link to Karina Trinidad. She gave me confidence to your pattern.

  21. Mary (verified owner)

    I did a hack and added princess seams front and back. Yes I would definitely use this pattern again.

  22. remediosgallego (verified owner)

    I’ve two tops so far. The first one with a thick fleece and the second with a striped french terry. Both look great.

    In this pattern the lines of the drawing go beyond the margins, that’s so great for using “Assemble PDF patterns, the quick way” that Kennis showed us in her post.

    It’s a wonderful pattern that is quick and easy to make. I love it.

  23. rloharris (verified owner)

    The cup sizing is a game changer and I love the great fit all over, the neckline is classy and it’s a great pattern to showcase bold prints or chic stripes. It was an enjoyable project to sew (I used a normal sewing machine). I made mine in cotton jersey but I plan to make the next in a floral scuba!

  24. auschick (verified owner)

    This was a quick and easy sew for me! The most time consuming thing was deciding on which fabric to use! I ended up using a nylon ponte. Next time I’d prefer to use a sweater knit – maybe a cozy French terry or something. I’ve written more about this project on my blog.

Material

Primary Fabric Medium weight structured knit fabric with 25-35% stretch. Structured fabric is essential so that the funnel neck can stand up and not flop down. Examples are ponte, micro fleece, quilted jersey, ottoman rib and scuba.

Other Materials

  • 11” (28 cm) of 3/8” or 1/2” (1 cm or 1.25 cm)-wide straight fusible stay tape (or 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.

How to choose your size

  1. Determine your cup sizeβ€”subtract the circumference of your over bust from the circumference of the fullest part of your bust. If the rounded difference is 1β€³ (2.5 cm), use A cup; 2β€³ (5 cm), use B cup; 3β€³ (7.5 cm), use C cup; 4β€³ (10 cm), use D cup; 5β€³ (12.5 cm), use DD cup.
  2. After determining the cup size, compare your bust circumference (fullest part) to the β€œBody Measurements” table. Using the corresponding row for your cup, 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 β€œBody 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 β€œBody 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.
