  1. Sheryl (verified owner)

    Lovely pattern

  2. Debbie (verified owner)

    Great, as always!!

  3. Susan (verified owner)

    this pattern went together very well, all the notches matched up and I am very pleased with the finished blouse – I made the one with long sleeves.

  4. April (verified owner)

    Quick sew and beautiful result. The pleated short sleeve is my favorite part. I sewed it in Japanese crinkle cotton and was very pleased with the final product. Her patterns always fit me well and the instructions are clear and easy to follow.

  5. Kathryn (verified owner)

    I like the pattern but had more fitting issues with this one than with the others I’ve had from ITS. I lowered the bust dart, reduced the length of the armscye and the v neckline and increased the curve on the back centre seam.

  6. Sheelagh (verified owner)

    Your patterns give an up to date twist to classic designs. In this case the sleeves.

  7. Melissa (verified owner)

    This is a lovely style for me- feminine but still classic. I like that it can be a bit dressy or casual. I will send more after I sew it up!
    Thank you for all you do!
    Melissa

  8. Deborah (verified owner)

    Love this and all of your patterns so easy to sew and the instructions are fabulous.

  9. Anonymous (verified owner)

    Lovely pattern. Well drafted with clear instuctions

  10. S. (verified owner)

    Love her clean, classic lines-always with that little extra something to make her patterns special.

  11. Sondra (verified owner)

    Love, Love Itch to stitch patterns so easy to put together and easy to follow. I have many of their patterns and I would recommend them to everyone. They are easy to adjust to your particular size. The designs are amazing and they make you want to make them. I will continue purchasing patterns from Itch to stitch.

  12. Judy Gary (verified owner)

    Good pattern easy to cut and sew

  13. Virginie (verified owner)

    I absolutely love this blouse. I live the neck and the sleeve options. I made one and plan to make others

  14. Mary (verified owner)

    Love this top!

  15. Lorraine (verified owner)

    Great pattern, very pleased.

  16. Laura (verified owner)

    I just finished sewing the Seychelles Top and wasn’t sure if it was my style. But now that it is done, it is the perfect, discreet, basic woven top for warm weather. The bust cup options make all the difference. Without those, I could not wear a style like this without looking like I was 20 lbs heavier. This top is great for tucking in or half-tucks.

  17. Diane (verified owner)

    I made the long sleeved version in a drapery polyester crepe. Very easy construction. Comfortable fit but has some shape. Will definitely make more.

  18. Donna Harder (verified owner)

    I really liked sewing this top! I had a piece of rayon in my old stash and it turned out so nice!

  19. Taryn (verified owner)

    Wearing my Seychelles Top today πŸ˜„ great design details, comfortable but chic. A great combination

  20. Nicole (verified owner)

    A very stylish basic blouse

  21. Glenda (verified owner)

    Great top with options of short or long sleeves. Looks great on everyone. Well drafted pattern.

  22. Julie (verified owner)

    Good clear instructions, like the different cup size options. Really pleased with how my two Seychelles Tops turned out

  23. Vanessa (verified owner)

    I adore this top! Both the long and short versions are beautiful, and I have enjoyed sewing them as a wardrobe staple.

  24. DEBBIE ANN (verified owner)

    Awesome top. So easy to sew and it is perfect for work or just regular daily activities!

  25. linda (verified owner)

    This is a great pattern. The fit and instructions are very good. I will make it many more times.

  26. Diane (verified owner)

    I love the detailed instructions of Itch-to-Stitch patterns. Even though this was an easy top to sew, there are lots of little tips and touches that make it look professional.

  27. Hansie (verified owner)

    I LOVE this blouse ! As usual everything is perfect πŸ™‚

  28. rloharris (verified owner)

    I loved this pattern so much I made 6! If you have beautiful cotton lawns, how can you not! Perfect result each time. I made short sleeve, short sleeve with 2 inches added to the sleeve for a mid length, and my favourite, that dainty narrow cuff long sleeve!

  29. Sandra (verified owner)

    Fantastic pattern! Super easy to make and it’s beautiful in many different fabrics. I’ve made 2 so far.

  30. Carol (verified owner)

    Lovely pattern, made the long sleeve version in viscose.

  31. Anonymous (verified owner)

    What a beautifully designed top. This is a perfect wardrobe builder. Many options allow for several different looks from one pattern. I like how it is a clean and simple silhouette but is not boxy and frumpy in the fit. It is not a complicated sew and would be a good pattern for someone wanting to get started with woven styles.

  32. Merrily (verified owner)

    Nice fit. I like the narrow shoulders and the way the bottom of the armscye comes up under the arm, not tight or restricting, but modest. I plan to make this again in a sleeveless version.

  33. Linda (verified owner)

    A great and easy pattern with a great looking top as a result!!

  34. Gail (verified owner)

    Such a great pattern. Just making my first short sleeve option, the instructions are easy to follow and it’s a great fit.

  35. Patsy Hanson (verified owner)

    I think this pattern will become my favorite woven blouse make. Simple lines, easy sew, so comfortable and can be dressed up or casual.

  36. Anonymous (verified owner)

    Another great pattern from Itch to Stitch!

  37. Hazel (verified owner)

    I absolutely love this top I have made a wearable toile from my stash, and now I’m satisfied that I can confidently make another I definitely will. I love all itch to stitch patterns, and with Karina’s help from her videos I’m confident enough to make more.

  38. Diann (verified owner)

    very little fitting adjustments needed for me

  39. Paula (verified owner)

    The concept of this item is very good. Happy that it is one for non-stretch fabric. The way the sleeves were designed was not so easy as the rest, but with a bit of experience in sewing it was fixed. Overall very happy with my purchase.

  40. Terri (verified owner)

    Very good instructions

  41. Sheila (verified owner)

    So easy to understand love the sleeves

  42. Sheila (verified owner)

    Excellent pattern as drafted with personal adjustments made and also used as a block for personal design changes.

  43. Anonymous (verified owner)

    The pattern is nice but my make turned into a wearable toile. It’s so big through the body. I’m just a B cup. When I make it again, I will grade down through the body from the 12 I made. The shoulders are good. The short sleeve is pretty. I used a crinkle cotton. I love the technique with the facing/interfacing!

  44. Marcia (verified owner)

    Sleeve pleats make this simple pattern nicely special. I’ll be making several more.

  45. Chandra (verified owner)

    love the various options for the bust and also being able to print out the sizes i want. love the style and options to sew up more than once

  46. Davina (verified owner)

    I like this top a lot. As I have narrow shoulders the fit was very good on me, without having to make any adjustments. I lengthened the top to make a knee length dress which is lovely. The pattern is very versatile. I found the fit quite generous. I made a 16 b cup but will make a 14 next time. I made the short sleeve version and the pleated sleeve top, which I was very unsure of, has turned out well and I like it. I also put a little more shape into the centre back seam, just for personal fit preference.

  47. Jeni (verified owner)

    Kennis nailed it. Another versatile wardrobe staple.

  48. Dorothy (verified owner)

    I enjoy making and wearing the garments made using
    your patterns.

    Dorothy

  49. Diane (verified owner)

    Love the ease with which this pattern went together!! Nice one!! :+)

  50. Lorelei (verified owner)

    Having difficulty doing the box sleeves. I am a returning sewer so I’m sure it is easy. Otherwise love the pattern. The bust fits perfectly.

  51. Gail (verified owner)

    I love the narrower shoulders and the cute sleeve.

  52. Sabine (verified owner)

    Quite a great pattern. Everything fits together perfectly, the instructions are clear and understandable. Have sewn two blouses and more will follow!

  53. Susan Wentworth (verified owner)

    Love this pattern. Both versions are so wearable.

  54. Linda (verified owner)

    Patterns are simple but classic. Love them.

  55. Elizabeth (verified owner)

    I like the little pleats on the top of the sleeve as well as the
    length of these sleeves, though for my own sleeves I will lengthen just a bit as I am older and need the coverage.

  56. Marilou (verified owner)

    Good pattern, poor fabric choice on my end. Will make again.

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.
