So versatile

This top fits great and come together quickly. Since the top uses so little fabric, I was able to piece together a version from linen scraps (for the summer heat)!

Excellent drafting, so many possibilities

What more needs to be said other than: a pattern available in my size, drafted for my body where I can easily grade between sizes for a straight-from-the-envelope-fit (in this case from the PDF fit).

I bought this pattern because it uses SO LITTLE FABRIC) and with all the pieces I figured I could use it for scrap-busting. Also the internet tells me I can use the sleeve expansions I already bought for the Upton dress? Bonus!

Springfield..

I have often looked at this pattern but dithered! However I was pleased with the easy to follow instructions and it was good to have different options to follow. Next version awaits!

Summer staple

I made a wearable muslin using my closest bust measurements and per website info chose cup size G/H. I had to make some adjustments for gaping neckline, large armhole, lowering and shortening bust dart. I ended up with a lovely top That I’ve worn several times. I am in the process of doing another muslin using my upper bust measurement and grading out at the bust line. To see if I would need to make fewer pattern adjustments. Once I’ve perfected this I have in mind to make several including the hacks shown.

Great little top!

This was my first cashmerette make. The Springfield was easy to sew and fits like a dream. I liked the different pieces depending on your cup requirements. It makes an essential top that notch or two dressier than a basic tee but just as easy to wear and style. I bought and made more cashmerette patterns after trying this one and have more on my to make lust. Thank you for filling this gap in the market so beautifully!
