How to choose your size
I’ve just started sewing and feel daunted by patterns, but this pattern was easy and had plenty of instruction.
I would highly recommend itch to stitch!
Erin Gouthro –
Love the simple lines! Boatnecks are my favourite
facile à réaliser. Patron basique très pratique
Pattern easy to sew, fits really well, instructions very clear. Will be making a lot more!
Learning to sew with knits. Love this pattern
I might make a few fit adjustments next time but I loved this pattern.
Easy to sew.
This is an easy to follow pattern. My finished product is exactly as expected. I made the Uvita Top with sweater knit. Love it!
Great pattern and easy to follow. Will be buying more patterns!
Great sewing pattern
This is a quick and easy sew! It’s so cute on. I’m a sucker for a boatneck! 💕
A beautiful Make! Kennis makes the pattern and it’s instructions wonderful to create.
So excited to have some new patterns that sew up beautifully
Pleasantly surprised with this pattern – came together more easily than I expected, and the fit was great. I’ve made it twice. For the second version I lowered the front neckline by about an inch, and instead of using a facing, I bound the neckline. I’ve also used the sleeve pattern in combination with another pattern that had a similar armscye but no sleeves. The measurements looked about right, and it fitted like a charm. I will be exploring more Itch to Stitch patterns.
Easy to make
This is an lovely basic pattern, well drafted and, worthy (in my eyes) of having tweaked it and making it in a cardboard stock that makes this pattern easy to use in over and over again~
I reserve this for well used patterns only~ Moreover, the 5$ add on pattern extends this pattern for all season. I very much like your designs and sense of style and have purchased more than a few!! The classic , timeless look cannot be topped in my wardrobe~ Thank you most kindly for the free pattern. I love the fact that I can make this for others as gifts also~and will do so for Christmas this year~
Nice pattern! Thank you
Wow ! My favorite New hoodie with the add-on !
great for cooler night
Very easy pattern to work with
Very straightforward to sew, and I really like the fit. It’s loose and comfortable, but with just the right shaping to not look boxy.
i CANNOT DOWNLOAD THE INSTRUCTIONS
Kennis Wong –
Please read https://itch-to-stitch.com/how-to-buy-download-print-assemble-pdf-patterns-part-3-download/ on how to download.
Have made 2 already in a very fine wool mix. For the second one, I added bands to the cuffs and bottom as the fabric was so fine. Fit was perfect to my size on the pattern and the instructions were very clear. This pattern will be a staple in my wardrobe. Thank you
great pattern and very good to follow
Instructions were really easy to follow.
The pattern is great and was easy to download. I will be getting more patterns.
I have made 2 of these tops in the last 2 weeks. i am very impressed with your directions and explanations on the patterns!
Très facile à faire, parfait. Va très bien. J’en referai d’autres. Un très grand merci pour ce patron.
I love these patterns. I’ve used many patterns from independent designers but the patterns from Itch to Stitch are head and shoulders above the rest. Great designs, size layers available for printing, very clear and consise instructions and affordable.
Really pleased with the pattern. Cut out size 10 and just added extra 2 inches to length. Used a light weight sweater knit from my stash that I couldn’t decide what to do with and it worked well.
Perfect pattern, easy to use with the explicit sewing pattern instructions even if i’m French and I don’t have a good level in English, the instructions are very clear and simple. This top is just perfect for my morphology, thank you!
Easy to do. The fit is perfect.
I love it
Super easy and efficient pattern. Only small dislike was the way the shoulders sit but that is totally adjustable, with a bit of effort.
Maria Bernadette –
Itch to stitch is one of my go to pattern companies. The instructions are spot on.
Great pattern and easy download. Thanks
Great pattern with a good size range.
This is a great pattern. It comes with a lot of sizes which is perfect for what I need.
I love the ease of putting the pieces together and sewing it up is so fast!
Love this top. Beginner friendly!
Great pattern and fits well.
Good pattern, was a bit challenging for me being a beginner. But I’m satisfied with the result!
Never enough T-shirts. Good pattern.
Absolutely love this pattern. The fit is amazing. Love love the neckline.
I really like your patterns firstly because they are elegant, chic and feminine models.
Second, we offer you sizes up to 40 and you have patterns suitable for four different breast sizes.
Thirdly we can select the desired patterns by printing only the chosen size and give you the page numbers corresponding to them, so that from 71 pages, we print only 25. that’s a great job. Thank you.
Sorry Google translation I don’t speak English.
A perfect basic to have on hand. Others in my sewing group have made this, too, and have been very pleased with the results.
This is a great pattern very easy to put it together I love it! Thank you very much for the free pattern
T shirt fits like a dream and so easy. Thank you for the freebie. I am currently working on the Anza jumpsuit and am having a little bit of problems with the drawstring casing but I will get it. I am using a beautiful scuba knit, nice drape in a deep eggplant. It’s going to be a stunner! Next up will be the Bonn shirt, or maybe dress or both. Not sure yet. Needless to say, I love your patterns, especially with the cup sizing.
ITS is such a great pattern company. Full of great designs.
Patron sympa et résultat à la hauteur de mon attente.
Perfect length and love the style.
ce patron est parfait, je me suis fait un sweat avec manches differente couleur tout le monde aime
Very easy to order, well drafted
Good fit and very easy to follow
Love this top
Straight-foward and a good essential to have, this pattern will get a lot of use
Easy to wear
Very good pattern and clear instructions
This is my first digital pattern. The large print and multiple size options are great. Your sewing instructions are clear – I love the pattern. I would not change a thing. Thank You!
love this top
Easy to follow, although my technology deficiencies meant I couldn’t work out how to just choose my size layer. The instructions were comprehensive and easy to follow. Completed in around 2 hours! Thx.
Kennis Wong –
Hi Penelope, this should help you. It contains information about downloading the file: https://itch-to-stitch.com/how-to-buy-download-print-assemble-pdf-patterns-part-3-download/ which I believe is related to your issue of not being able to select the layers. Also, the next post in the series (link inside the downloading post) will show you how to print.
Such an amazing pattern. Made
two already! Especially like the add on I’ve just bought.
Easy to sew.
Love this pattern. Easy to sew, great instructions. Thank you
How lovely to be able to have such a good pattern as a free bonus item
Jana Fowler –
Awesome tee! Fit is perfect. Love the slight boat neckline.
Very nice. Thank you
Quick and easy pattern
J ai adoré
I think it’s easy and I love the color blocking
Pauline Hake –
Great top, easy to sew.
This was quick and easy and went together beautifully. I made a cropped, sleeveless version from French terry. Very happy! Thank-you for the great pattern.
I made two of these in the first week of having the pattern. I like the PDF option a lot!!! I don’t have to wait and being able to print only the size I want to sew or the two that I need to easily grade the pattern, is wonderful!
For me the top of the shirt was just a bit too high and bothered my neck quite a bit. I made the largest size (20 I think). I tried to adjust using my super sharp sewing scissors to take it down just a touch and of course had a mishap and cut a lot more than intended. That was my fault not the patterns!!!
But I do like the pattern for ease of use. The instructions were easy to follow and clearly written.
The second one I made I didn’t dare try to bring the neck down on!!!! But I hope to return to the pattern in the future and make the adjustment when cutting out the shirt front instead of trying to adjust later :0)
This was my first experience with your patterns and I have already downloaded two others. This is also my first experience with an independent pattern company. It was a great experience and I am sure to be back for more!!!
The sizing was great for me, and the instructions clear. I appreciated the PDF layers for the different sizes. I finished my top this weekend and I’m very proud of it. Thank you for making this pattern available!
Beautiful pattern so easy to use and I also extended the length and made a dress
Very simple garment to sew, although I struggled to get the neck band to lie flat. I think I may have stretched out the neckline too much. Very comfortable garment to wear.
Thank you for all your effort and work ,for this free pattern. I love it
Hi from greece.I dont know english,so the one thing i can tell you ,is the sewing pattern is perfect to me.Keep going!
I love how easy it is to make and that you can adapt the pattern to personal choice.
Fast and easy. I’ve already made 2 t-shirts!
Looks like a good top to make and very pleased that it’s free. Most helpful. 😁
Easy instructions, great pattern
Love the top!
Love how comfortable it is and how easy it was to make. Thank you..
Very easy to sew and a great fitting pattern.
Fun and easy!!
easy to finish
Pattern was easy to use, instructions were easy to follow and my shirt turned out great!
Great free pattern with full instructions!
The pattern was very clearly labelled and easy to follow. Good tips throughout. I just didn’t realize the boat neck was so wide, and that is not my favourite. The sleeves for me, where 2″ too long and the body I would have liked 2″ longer. I will make it again with some personal adjustments.
Love this. So thankful for a great free item!!
I made a Uvita top for my mom and it turned out really well. I ended up adding a simple stand up 2” collar to the neckline. I also lowered the front neckline a little and added an inch or so to the sides of the neckline. I plan on making one for myself next and adding some French darts.
Jennifer Cumming –
A hassle free shopping experience. Lovely pattern too.
This pattern is fab! The shape is flattering, sizing good and instructions clear. An excellent pattern for anyone new to sewing or a first time using jersey or knit fabric. For me I needed a quick, easy sew as currently not too well but in desperate need of a couple of lighter weight long sleeve tops for winter. Uvita is perfect for me and I made 2 versions immediately! Thank you!
Very nice, well fitted. I changed the fabrics to more New Years party😄. And its still very comfortable.
So easy to cut and tape together!
Just what I needed
Easy to make well drafted, quick to sew !
Easy to follow instructions. Lovely top.
Just sewed my first Uvita t-shirt today. Sizes were correct and instructions very clear and I like the result a lot. Just ordered new fabrics online and can’t wait to make the Bellavista and Newport top. Thank you for the free Uvita pattern. I’l certainly make other Uvita’s in the near future.
Kathy Wickins –
I love your patterns. I tried a free one first and would buy more but I have an older printer & computer so I have issues printing layers. I will keep trying! Thank you.
easy to sew. Adapted the sizing according to the helpful instructions. Hope my mum likes her Christmas present!
Très beau patron . merci
Easy to follow instructions. Simple shape that I can hack with variety of designs. At start of cold weather season a great fit. Thanks for gifting
Made this top for my mother in law. It went together so well and she loves the boat neck option. Will definitely be making her more.
Facile et rapide merci
Great pattern. Easy to follow and clear
Great top. For the fabric I used I would cut the neckband 1/4″ wider next time. I’ll definitely use this pattern again. Thanks!
The pattern was very easy to assemble. The sizing is good. Of course, I need to tweak the sleeves, (a little too wide). My fabric choice was not the best – but it is a wearable test” muslin”.
I liked the neckline facing, but was unable to turn it under ( probably operator error) so I just trimmed it after stitching and it looks fine.
Thank you for the opportunity to try out your patterns. I basically wear simple casual clothing and your top fit the bill.
Thank you so much for your pattern. Fits perfekt.
i like it
Super ravie de ce patron !! Merci
J’aime beaucoup ce modèle permet des variantes selon le tissu choisi, uni, imprimé, manches différentes …. Je vous remercie de nous l’offrir
Love this and so generous to provide it for free.
Easy to sew.
I just found I love to wear simple tops but with beautiful fabrics for my every day!
Very good fitting pattern
True to size and excellent directions
I have loved every Itch to Stitch pattern I have purchased.
WISH IT WAS INTO PLUS SIZE BUT I CAN GRADE
Thank you! A definite T&T!!
Nice and easy. I found that the arms are too large, will have to adjust on my next version.
Thank you for the free pattern 🙂 I graded between a 4 and 6 and shortened both the body and sleeve length by 2 inches, while also raising the waist 2 inches, which are standard adjustments for me. It is both comfortable and flattering. Looking forward to trying the Lagos tank and Celeste dress next. Thanks again !
Lovely pattern great results
Good easy to follow pattern
Easy pattern and looks lovely.
Perfectly fitting and easy to assemble! Loves the simple but efficient instructions!
Easy and nice
Perfect as a wardrobe staple.
It was easy to sew. It is good for a beginner to try out for the forst time
Doris T. –
Easy to follow directions. Great fit. I did change the neckline. Will make this pattern again. Will be trying another pattern soon.
Easy to download
Very nice pattern
Loved the pattern-clear and easy to understand directions
a little bit over sized for me
Very easy and quick to sew
Easy to sew, clear instructions- thank you
Nice top, versitile
Great pattern, simple but nice!
I love it and it is a really good one for beginners.It is a drop sleeve so you don’t have to worry about attaching the sleeves,so it is a great space to start with.it is easy to download and i really recommend it
I made this with the add-on patch pockets and high neck. Sizing is quite large, but that’s no surprise, as it’s called oversized.
Easy to follow great for beginner
Easy and cute make.
I wear a lot of tops like this one and like the color block opportunity. I will make it in long and short sleeve varieties. Thank you for this nice pattern.
It’s wonderful, I love it
Vert easy to do, well explained, thanks
Love it, so easy and so flattering
I like ir!!
So quick and easy to make and beautifully drafted! The style is a little more dressy than a regular t-shirt. Will be making many more of these tops! These free patterns are Awesome. Thank-you!
Really lovely make
Yeoh Ah See –
Fall in love with it
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.
This pattern is the basis for the add-on.
Very nice pattern easy to follow
this top pattern is lovely. Thank you.
It’s hard to find patterns I like. I like this one.
absolutely in love
Great pattern. Just my style and easy to see. Never had a pdf pattern before. Found out about it through a friend who followed you on instagram
The picture showed a closer fit. Next time I will size down. (I went by my measurements for my first attempt). Nice pattern. Love the dropped sleeves.
patron facile à suivre bonne taille
Perfect weekend wear!
Donna Harder –
I just made the top with a t shirt knit and it is a very nice fit!
Love this pattern. Very easy to put together & size. And it was Free – what’s not to like! A proper staple piece. Thank you.
conforme à mes attentes
Easy to follow! Pleased with how my shirts turned out ☺️ Thank you.
Love the pattern, easy to use!
I would definitely make this again. The only adjustment I made was to widen piece #4, the neck facing. I increased it to 1 1/4 inches wide. The top fits nice and easy to make!
Sizing a little large
Pattern fitted well for a petite person. Love that it was a modern design also.Thank you so much
so simple to put together and easy instructions !!!!
Very easy to make. Love the style.
Very easy to follow, as usual with your patterns. I will soon be making another one!
Wonderful and accurate
Best t shirt top I’ve made , fitted perfectly with no adjustments needed. Have just bought the add on which I haven’t used yet. Would highly recommend this pattern
Great basic top, will get years of use out of this one Thank you
great pattern and very easy to make up
lovely top – easy pattern to follow and make enjoyed this one
Love this top – thank you!
I love it very easy .
Another great sew, very comfortable and easy to sew and wear – a classic piece!
Lovely pattern, thank you so much x
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 –
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.
Putting together the pdf pattern was the easiest I have ever used.
Love the easy fit and finish
So easy to download and print. Didn’t take long to tape together and cut out. The Uvita top was quick to stitch together and will definitely make more.
Easy pattern that will be fun to make many times.
Easy to follow instructions
Perfect Design ?
so many options with this top!
très simple à faire, bon résultat
Very easy to sew up. Works well in the rayon cotton knit I used.
Good instructions and well fitted pattern.
Thank you for making this pattern available
Sarah Pate –
Easy pattern, fun possibilities!
Simple et joli à la fois
It was the first time I have used a PDF pattern, it was a learning experience.
Great little too easy to make too!!
Great pattern and instructions.
Very nice shirt- it fits really good. Next time i try to improve the pattern by making a FBA.
The instructions are easy to understand even for a german 😉
Great pattern! Thanks
Nice pattern. Sees up easy. Everything matches.
Een prima patroon met duidelijke beschrijving erbij. Ik ben er heel blij mee!
Easy to follow instructions and beautiful end result
Love the patern. I made the good size at once!! I’m gonna make more from this!
Easy pattern. Clear instructions. Very happy with my make. Baggy off-shoulder sweatshirt style more than it looks in the photos.
Very simple und sitzt gut.
Lovely but keep in mind it only go to a special size
Nice pattern, good fit
Clear instructions and very easy to make
Excellent instructions, highly recommend these patterns.
I really like this pattern. It is perfect for a lazy day, but I can wear it to work as well. It is so comfy and versatile.
Now I have to come back and order the hack pack for this top. I’m really excited about sewing this! Now all I have to do is get someone to show me how to download and print this and other patterns I already ordered or am about to order. I ❤️ your designs. Thank you. Cheryl
Maria jose de la cruz –
Good basic !
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. 🙂
A fantastic basic, especially when teamed with the new add-on pack
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.
Easy and cute!!!
Pattern was well fitting and well explained
