Newport top- Itch to stitch new pattern

I do sew other patterns than Itch to Stitch, but for this time, again a new PDF pattern from Itch to stitch. This is the Newport top, a pattern made for knit fabrics. It has a boxy silhouette, relaxed fit with high low hem. Wide boat neckline with envelope fold shoulders. The pattern comes with two sleeve options,3/4 flute and regular long. The size range is 00-20 and I made mine in size 6.

Depending on the fabric choice you will get a very different look. This blue version is made with jacquard jersey, very soft and with a nice drape. I made another version in a more stiff knit fabric and the difference is easy to see on the drape at the hem.

I think I like it more with the drapey fabric.

The neckline is finished with facings, that later are stitched in place, you can use for this decorative stitches, contrasting thread or a cover machine. I went with a regular stitch and matching thread as my fabric has the jacquard structure and I want it to keep it simple. The fabric is from a local fabric store "DroomStoffen" from Almere.

I really like the neckline of this top! This is a really easy to sew pattern, after attaching the facings with the regular sewing machine, I sew the rest on my serger in a few minutes. 

The Newport top is on sale at the Itch to Stitch pattern shop
