I purchased this pattern as a first garment attempt, and while the first one was wearable, there were some fit issues that Jenny was happy to help with! I cannot get over the availability of help from this company, from the well written instructions, to the sew along tutorials, to the social media presence. I ended up with a custom fit pattern that I used to make several tops that are perfect for layering under cardigans and blazers at the office.
Nice to find a pattern for large cup sizes. This is a bit of a learning curve for me. Sewing for a larger me is challenging. Should have made one from muslin as suggested. I am adjusting the top I am making now. In the past, the neck and armhole facings were wider. Have a little worry about making the skinny ones look good. All in all I think it will be nice.
I made the Springfield after making the Dolman. I really like this top, as it is comfortable in the warm fall weather but will also be wearable as a layering piece when it cools down. I enrolled in the "Pattern Hacks" workshop and the "Fit for Curves" and found both of them to be very helpful. The courses are different but complimentary and the quality of the content is excellent.
I was very happy with the fit of my first Springfield top, I usually have to do a large FBA but was not needed on this pattern, and will be making a few more once I can get out and shop for fabric
