Was so excited to discover Cashmerette patterns. I'm so tired of things swimming on my shoulders I'd they fit my bust, and it's so nice to have a top I can just cut out and have it fit first time. Can make a whole top in a couple of hours. Planning on making several as a work 'uniform'. Can't wait to try more Cashmerette patterns.
the fitting ist just perfect: no gaping, easy to follow instructions, perfect length
A woven tee that fits in the bust and shoulders is an invaluable starting point for a wardrobe of casual and dressier tops. Change up the sleeves, neckline, and yoke, per the pattern and you have many possible iterations. Go out on your own and change things up a bit, and this basic becomes a workhorse. I’ve made one so far, and I love it. I added flounces to the sleeves to mimic an Anthropologie top I had my eye on for a while.
What a fabulous fitting top! So nice to have a top for woven fabrics that can be casual with jeans and shorts, or more formal,made with lace, velvet etc. Love the additional sleeve for larger biceps as well
