The Springfield is my first Cashmerette pattern, which I got just so that I could try out the sizing on the patterns. Having now sewn it up, I shall certainly be buying further patterns! It has given me a perfect fit first time and I love it.
Clear and easy to follow instructions along with great styling and fit make these Cashmerette my new “go to” patterns.
I love the Springfield and all the hacks that are so easy to create. The sew was easy due to the detail instructions. This will be a wardrobe staple for me!
The pictures of the top on your website do not do justice to this top. The bust area was beautifully sculpted without having make a do-it-yourself full bust adjustment.
Well very few alterations which is unusual for me who tweeks a Little here & there.I found it was easy to follow the instructions & make it up .I guess as I have made several you could say it’s a winner.My only problem is my wardrobe is a little too small now I have found your pattern label
I've made two Springfield tops now, and look forward to making another one. My standard work outfit is a tank with a cardigan over it. The Springfield tops are great. They are fast and fun to sew, and they fit wonderfully. This is the first pattern I've had where I've made more than one piece. I'm a beginner clothing maker. Highly recommend.
