Size Chart

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

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 Two-way or four-way stretch knit fabric with 25% to 50% horizontal stretch. French terry, cotton Lycra jersey and double brush poly are good choices. If using rayon spandex knit, you may need to go down one size or more. Do not use woven fabric.

Other Material

  • 42” (107 cm) of 3/8” or 1/2” (1 cm or 1.25 cm)-wide bias fusible stay tape (or you may cut your own using lightweight woven fusible interfacing on the bias 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.

    Hi there, I would love to see free patterns of more tailored tops but with a simple cut. For example no falling sleeve. Once I master it I can buy the more complicated pattern. Thank you anyway for the offer.

    Lovely pattern, thank you so much x

  34. Anonymous (verified owner)

    Thank you, it was a really great pattern. I would have liked the pattern to include the seam if we wanted to change from solid to striped fabric as in the picture above. Loved the sizing chart as well. Very helpful. Thank you for offering the pattern for free. Very kind of you.

    • Kennis Wong (store manager)

      Thank you for your suggestion. Actually in the photo, there is no seam. The fabric is just like that—with stripes on top and solid in the bottom.

  74. Hannelore (verified owner)

    Good basic !

  75. Maie (verified owner)

    While the pattern is simple enough to follow, I needed to add about another 7 sizes for my plus size needs.
    It would be useful if it was clearly obvious where your sizing scale is from. 🙂

  76. Sarah (verified owner)

    A fantastic basic, especially when teamed with the new add-on pack

  77. Lone (verified owner)

    Another awesome ITS pattern. Uvita is a fast sew and with the add-on pack, it really has a lot of options. I can se many more Uvitas in my future.
