Nittany Top Digital Sewing Pattern (PDF)

(22 customer reviews)

US$13.00

If you are looking for a lightweight, breathable and flattering garment for the summer, look no further than the Nittany Top! There is something extra sweet about a pleated neckline, and you can choose to add the keyhole for even more interest. An optional sash allows you to cinch the top at the waist, but it will look super cute if you skip the sash and wear a belt with it. Alternatively, tuck (or half-tuck) the top in your favorite jeans for a casual look!   

Nittany Top Features:

  • Options for cup sizes
  • Pleated round neckline
  • Optional keyhole at the center front neckline
  • Short sleeves
  • Shirttail hem
  • Optional Sash
  • Partially-lined in the front
  • Designed for lightweight woven fabric

Skill Level: Intermediate

Sizes: 00 – 40 (See “Size Chart” tab below for detailed measurements)

  4. catherine (verified owner)

    fait dans un crêpon de viscose ,à refaire mais je recherche le bon tissu

  5. Anonymous (verified owner)

    Front was too wide. Extra fabric in center front at neck and bust was too much. Would like to have more smaller pleats at neckline rather than 2 on each side. Overall, a much better pattern than any others I’ve tried to fit over my DD bust. It fit well through the neck and armhole.

  6. Françoise (verified owner)

    Joli et des options pour avoir un top sur-mesure.

  7. Shiek Hamida (verified owner)

  10. Teresa (verified owner)

    The Nittany pattern fit very well with few adjustments and the instructions are so wonderfully written. Bravo for taking the time to made a quality pattern!

  11. Anonymous (verified owner)

    Beautiful pattern! As always Kennis’ directions are flawless. Don’t pass this by thinking it would be difficult to make. Just wish there was a long sleeve option to span the seasons.

  12. Vicki (verified owner)

    Great directions! Enjoyed making!

  13. Margo (verified owner)

    Very detailed instructions, particularly for the pleats. Only issue I had was I am used to 5/8″ seams so I had to be extra careful. Love the different cup sizing on the pattern. Only adjustment I made was I shortened it for my petite frame.

  14. Tiina (verified owner)

    Nice and elegant!

  15. Katherine (verified owner)

    Runs a little big but easy to make and looks great!

  16. Patsy Hanson (verified owner)

    I made a very wearable muslin. Now deciding on special fabric

  17. Sabine (verified owner)

    A great pattern with wonderful instructions. As always, with Itch to Stitch patterns. I sewed a blouse from a fine silk and am very happy with it. I will sew this pattern a few more times.

  18. Jos (verified owner)

    Another great pattern by Itch to Stitch!

  19. Anonymous (verified owner)

How to choose your size

  1. Determine your cup size—subtract the circumference of your over bust from the circumference of the fullest part of your bust. If the rounded difference is 1″ (2.5 cm), use A cup; 2″ (5 cm), use B cup; 3″ (7.5 cm), use C cup; 4″ (10 cm), use D cup; 5″ (12.5 cm), use DD cup.
  2. After determining the cup size, compare your bust circumference (fullest part) to the “Body 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 “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.
