    5 out of 5 I've found my perfect boat neck

    Love, Lucie

    After comparing many boat neck patterns (reviews on the blog post), I’ve found my perfect one.
    For me, the Uvita top by Itch to Stitch ticked all the boxes.
    A nice wide neck that I can get on without fear of foundation marks, but not so wide to show my bra straps.
    A slightly fitted shape, nicely fitting around the arms, that doesn’t engulf me. Size 4, according to my bust. No adjustments made.
    Relaxed drop shoulders.
    I did change the neck fabrication. The pattern asked for a self fabric binding. This was a medium weight cosy jersey knit so the neck ending up standing up proud, no matter how much I steamed and pressed it. I can see others have had a similar problem after a good search on instagram.
    So I looked at one of my rtw’s, took the binding off, undid the shoulder seam a little, ironed on some iron-on stay-stitch tape close to the edge of the neckline to stabilise the neck, folded over about 1.5cm and cover stitched the neckline before sewing the shoulder seams back up. An alternative method perhaps but now looks flat and just what I was looking for.
    More details and more regarding my research into the perfect boat neck on the blog

    5 out of 5 Lovely quick and easy top


    Downloaded the pattern yesterday and I finished my first make of it this morning and straight away went on to make another. The instructions are really clear and the fit is good, as described it’s relaxed. I had to make the sleeves shorter as I often do on patterns.
    I think this will be one of my go to patterns for jersey tops.
