Great pattern

I bought a bunch of Cashmerette patterns. I decided the first pattern I would sew would be the Springfield top because it is a simple woven top with only a few pattern pieces and sleeveless tops rarely fit me in rtw. Gaposis underarm is not a nice look! I was thinking that because my high bust was only 2 “ less than my full bust, a CD bust would be fine. However, upon measuring under the bust vs. full bust (used for bra sizing) it showed I needed a larger cup size. So long story short, I made the next muslin in the next size up cup size, and I had to drop the bust dart down an inch because my apex was lower. For this pattern’s finished View A measurements, I graded the waist up one size and the hip 2 sizes not the 3 I had done on the first muslin. The jury is still out on a narrow shoulder adjustment. I’m going to baste the shoulder seams and do another fitting. Love this pattern! It has helped me tremendously to take the online class on upper body pattern adjustments and to take the time to make these adjustments. Thank you!

Great stashbuster

I’m excited to have a pattern to use up my smaller bits of yardage that I inherited. I converted the front to princess seams, and I’m looking forward to seeing what other modifications I can try.

Simple and Versatile

This pattern was easy to follow and sews up quickly. It’s easily altered to fit a variety of body shapes and sizes. The finished garment is roomy and forgiving. I did an adjustment to bring down the neckline about an inch, but otherwise, making one of the provided sizes was perfect for me. With fabric choice and provided options for a bottom band and cropped length, this pattern is also versatile, and the finished garment can be fancy or plain. I love it and I’ve already made two shirts on regular rotation in my wardrobe.

Excellent pattern, beautiful basic for your wardrobe!

This is a really well drafted woven tank top. The neckline hugs the body, the armseyes cover your bra and the cup size alteration is already done for you! Love the narrow bias facings that finish the neck and armseyes. It may look basic, but is such an essential piece in a wardrobe and you need this top. Under a sweater in winter or with a skirt for summer, this is a beautiful addition to anyone’s closet.

Great beginner project

This was my first ever piece of clothing I’ve sewn for myself.... very happy with how easy it was to put together, very clear instructions, and great tutorial. I made it in a straight 14 C/D bust, In view A to keep it simple, with quilters cotton, basically it was on the clearance rack, so thought it would be good to try as a muslin. I had two fitting issues, a gaping neckline, but have read and watched Jenny’s tutorial on how to fix this for my next one. And feels a bit tight at the arm holes when I bring my shoulders forward? Not sure if and where I should size up? Looking forward to sewing it in a more Swingy and flowing material next time and feeling pretty proud that I nearly managed get the fit right, and I sewed all the seams with a french seams.
