    A perfect basic to have on hand. Others in my sewing group have made this, too, and have been very pleased with the results.

  3. Rosana (verified owner)

    This is a great pattern very easy to put it together I love it! Thank you very much for the free pattern

  4. Kristine (verified owner)

    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.

    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.

  36. Cindy (verified owner)

    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!!!

    Beautiful pattern so easy to use and I also extended the length and made a dress

  40. Sue (verified owner)

    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.

  58. Joan (verified owner)

    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.

  59. Courtney (verified owner)

    Love this. So thankful for a great free item!!

  60. D (verified owner)

    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.

  64. Zena (verified owner)

    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!

  65. Izabela (verified owner)

    Great pattern. Easy to follow and clear

  78. Angela (verified owner)

    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!

  79. Ginger (verified owner)

    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 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 !

  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 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.
  4. It’s OK to use different sizes for the bust, waist and hip. The instructions for blending sizes are included in the pattern.
  5. 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.
