Great Tobin

I really like the Tobin. I found an athleisure cable knit sweater fabric that sews up beautifully with the cowl neck. Got a compliment the first time I wore it. My only issue is I have to do an SBA. That does not take away from my 5 star review however. I followed the SBA directions available right on the website. I understand Cashmerette is mainly designed for the curvy chested woman. My curves are on the backside so I plan to purchase the Ames jeans pattern soon that has a pear shape option.

Quick and easy to make, comfy and stylish to wear!

I made my first Tobin from micro rib scuba, view B with a straight hem. Size 18 G/H cup. It was cut out and sewn up in an afternoon! As Cashmerette patterns usually fit me pretty perfectly first time I didn’t do a toile. On my next Tobin - as there will be more - I will lower the bust dart 1” and straighten the lower sides at the hip area but that’s all. I think the Tobin would also make a great sweater dress for a casual comfy look.

Sew delighted, sew straightforward, so pleased.

I struggle to get tops to fit my bust.
This pattern was so easy. Take measurements, (be honest with oneself).
Look at table and cup size. Take the plunge.
I made size 24 with G cup. View B with several hacks. Only had 1.5 m of French jersey fabric. It was close but as you can see from photo it all came together. Used my overlocker and Coverpro. Making more tomorrow.

Tobin trial garment -- great fit out of the gate

Super easy make. Directions were great. I stumbled a bit on sewing down the "wing" on the cowl (I sewed too far), but I think that's because I shortened the height of the cowl (I have a short neck). I also over-altered the pattern a bit so it's a little too short and wide, but it fits great in the shoulders. I'm anxious for a re-do and can't wait to make another one! I love the style of the Tobin and have been admiring it for months.

Got compliments

Bicep needed adjustment, but the fit was good with my regular adjustments. I got many compliments when I wore it.

Great Pattern

I made view B using a sweatshirt material. I shortened by 2" (I'm 5'2") and made no further adjustments. Very pleased with this pattern - super cozy with leggings. I will use this pattern again and will happily try other Cashmerette patterns.
