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
My Springfield is size 20 G/H made from quilting cotton with hand finished satin trim. I love this pattern, and as we are going into Australian Spring I can see myself making many more of this versatile style
Being blessed with a large bust, I have never made a shirt pattern that did not involve large amounts of adjustments and result in a finished product that I didn’t really like wearing… until I tried the Springfield. This top has been an absolute game changer for me, I made a muslin with no adjustments and was blown away by how well it fit. I have since made almost a dozen versions, some for summer, some for work, and I just love wearing all of them. Thank you for this pattern!
