It is a top with a boat neckline. It is great for a a bit ticker type of fabric, such as french terry and sweat knit. It is a comfortable top that looks nice. It has a high/low hem and some decorative top stitching.
Just as Jenya (While she was sleeping) said, I also don't sew as much for myself because of the alterations that I need to do before I am totally happy with my garment and I will actually wear it. With this top, because it has a loose fit you don't need to worry about that too much. The size of the bust is all you need (and maybe the length that you want your top to be). For the first top I sewed (red fabric) I did blend for different sizes between my bust, waist and hips, however, for my second top (grey fabric) I just skipped that and made my top a straight 2.
I sewed two Newport tops during the test and as you can see the fabric that you choose can give a different look. Using a different color thread for the stitching on the neckline can give a nice finishing touch. And you get to use one of those beautiful stitches on your sewing machine. I love to use them, but only rarely find an opportunity to use them, now you can!
I sewed the Newport top with long sleeves, you can also make them with flute sleeves, which are a bit shorter and are wider at the end of the sleeve.
Fabric: red fabric is a sweat knit and comes from Cares in Wijchen, the grey fabric is also a sweat knit and comes from Megastoffen
Pattern: Newport Top by Itch to Stitch
