Newport Top Digital Sewing Pattern (PDF)

(10 customer reviews)


Snuggle-worthy yet effortlessly elegant, the Newport Top is one garment that you won’t regret making. The Newport’s details are understated, but you surely will not go unnoticed. Use a soft sweater knit for an instant sweater, or use a fluid jersey for a casual tee. Oh, you also get to choose between regular long sleeves and 3/4 flute sleeves. Of course you can always make two tops and try both styles of sleeves.

Newport Top Features:

  • Boxy silhouette with a relaxed fit
  • Wide boat neckline
  • “Envelope fold” shoulders
  • High-low hem
  • Two sleeve options: 3/4 flute  and regular long
  • Layers feature (print only the sizes you need)

Skill Level: Beginner+

Sizes: 00 – 20 (See “Size Chart” tab below for detailed measurements)

Size Chart

Newport 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 you are between sizes, choose the smaller size if you like your garment more fitted; otherwise, choose the bigger size.
  2. Compare your hip circumference (widest part) to the “Body Measurements” table. Choose the size that best fits your hip. If you are in between sizes, choose the smaller size if you like your garment more fitted; otherwise, choose the bigger size.
  3. It’s OK to use different sizes for the bust and hip (see “Blend Sizes” in the instructions).
  4. If you are taller or shorter than 5’6” (168 cm), you should consider lengthening or shortening the bodice (see “Lengthen/Shorten” in the instructions).

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 Use light to medium-weight knit fabric with 20% to 50% stretch as well as great drape and recovery. Sweater knit and jersey are great choices.

Interfacing Use lightweight knit or tricot fusible interfacing.

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.

    Hi Kennis. My Newport top made up very well. Other than the fact I cut out two left sleeves! But I trimmed both the sleeves to be the same and moved the notches on one of them and it didn’t matter at all. It fits well, looks great and the instructions were easy to follow. And I have a brand new computer skill. Thank you for your assistance there as well.

    I like the neckline for this T-shirt.

  7. Bernice (verified owner)

    The shoulder overlap on this top is a cute detail!

  8. MELODY (verified owner)

    I see lots of possibilities with this one, both casual and dressy. Just looks comfortable without being dowdy. I love Kennis’ patterns for their style without being too trendy. Many seem just right for my sense of style.

    First Itch to Stitch pattern, but I’ll definitely be back for more!

    This was my first PDF pattern. The download was straightforward. I printed the pattern on 8×10 and taped. The pattern assembly and sewing instructions were clear and easy to follow. The design was great and has a nice flow. I measured to a size 8, but I found this fit to be bigger than I liked. The neckline is unique on this garment and a great feature. Can’t wait to make another one.
