Brasov Wrap Top

Kennis of Itch to Stitch has created the Holy Grail in the Brasov Wrap Top: a wrap top with a modest neckline. I didn’t think it was possible, but look at how she did it.

There’s so much to like in this top. The high back neck that smoothly transitions into the front neckline, pleats at the shoulders and side to create nicely draping folds across the bodice, and a curving hem line to reflect the feminine lines of the wrap and draping.

The Brasov fits very comfortably, but I find myself fiddling with the crossover so it won’t lay too high across my chest.  I’ll resolve this by lowering the front neckline just a bit next time.

The Pattern: Brasov Wrap Top from Itch to Stitch in a size 6 graded to size 8 at the hips with no other alterations. I did not have to shorten the sleeves as usual for me, Kennis did lengthen the sleeves in the final pattern. (I sewed my Brasov as part of the pattern testing group )

The Fabric: Tomato red cotton/lycra jersey from Simply by Ti. Ti’s cotton/lycra is a little heavier weight which I like for most of my sewing.

*I received the Brasov for free as a pattern tester. I have included Itch to Stitch affiliate links.
