Visby Henley and Top PDF Sewing Pattern Body Measurements

Visby Henley and Top PDF Sewing Pattern Finished Garment Measurements

Choosing Your Size

  1. Compare your bust circumference (fullest part) to the “Body Measurements” table. Choose the size that best fits your bust.
  2. Compare your waist circumference (narrowest part) to the “Body Measurements” table. Choose the size that best fits your waist.
  3. Compare your hip circumference (widest part) to the “Body Measurements” table. Choose the size that best fits your hip.
  4. If you are between sizes for the bust, waist or hip, choose the smaller size if you like your garment more fitted; otherwise, choose the bigger size. It’s OK to use different sizes. See 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 Lightweight four-way stretch knit fabric with at least 50% horizontal stretch and 50% vertical stretch. French terry, cotton Lycra jersey and other cotton blend jersey are good choices. Slightly heavier weight knit can be used in View B only but not in Views A and C because the intersection of the placket and neckband/hood can become too bulky with thicker fabric. You can choose to color block the top by using different fabric for the front, back, sleeves, cuffs, neckband, hood and placket; use similar knit fabric for all these parts.

Interfacing Very lightweight fusible woven or weft insertion interfacing for Views A and C (View B does not require interfacing)

Other Material

  • Four 3/8" (1 cm) buttons for Views A and C

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.

Visby Henley & Top PDF Sewing Pattern Fabric Requirements Metric Note that there are many ways you could color block your Visby; fabric requirements are broken down into one suggested way, but you could further break them into smaller parts. For example, you can choose to use different fabric for Front and Back.

    I love these patterns. I only started sewing a few years ago, but these patterns are so well drafted with very clear instructions that they make me look like a veteran.

  5. Beatrix (verified owner)

    I sew it and I like it

  6. itzdiane (verified owner)

    I like all the different options for this top. With different necklines, a hood, and a curved hem or band, you can mix and match so many different ways. Kennis is always thorough with directions so the placket is the best by far! This is one of those patterns I’ll be able to sew again and again since it’s comfortable everyday wear.

    Love this! The design is flattering and the fit is perfect. I love how the measurements match the size that you are sewing. Will be sewing a lot more of these!

    I love this raglan, there are lots of options. Easy to understand instructions with great techniques. Stylish cuffs gives another option for different looks and the cuffs give a nice fitted style. I was able to make a suncover in spandex with no changes to the pattern at all, a real win for me, have been waiting for the perfect pattern and this is it.
