Itch to Stitch

My next project is the Bellavista Pattern from Itch to Stitch.  (I am an affiliate and link in left column. I would receive a commission if you used that link.)

I printed this pattern months ago, actually prior to our relocating to NC.  I decided with our cooler weather this would be the time to actually tape the pages together.  I like the layered printing that is provided with Itch to Stitch patterns and I only needed to print two sizes to accommodate my measurements.

I like the cowl neck look with this pattern as well as a somewhat swing shape to the overall look of the top. I wish I had similar knit fabric as shown in the picture below.
I am going to use a black/pink/coral rayon knit from Simply By Ti. (I am not an affiliate)

Next steps are to trace the pattern onto Swedish tracing paper for pin fitting.  Then after any adjustments cut out the fabric. 


  1. I like the cowl and seaming on this top! Can't wait to see it. I'll be sure to pop back over and use your link if I decide to buy it! Wish I knew that before I bought my other ItS patterns!

    1. I probably don't do a good job of promoting my affiliates. I would appreciate your using the link. I am just about finished with this top. I ran out of fabric and could not make the cowl which is the key thing that drew me to this pattern! I am using the neckband. So far I like the pattern after basting it.

  2. I think this is one of the most vital information for
    me. And i'm glad reading yor article. But wanna remark on few general things,
    The website style is ideal, the articles iis really excellent :
    D. Good job, cheers
