Well very few alterations which is unusual for me who tweeks a Little here & there.I found it was easy to follow the instructions & make it up .I guess as I have made several you could say it’s a winner.My only problem is my wardrobe is a little too small now I have found your pattern label
I've made two Springfield tops now, and look forward to making another one. My standard work outfit is a tank with a cardigan over it. The Springfield tops are great. They are fast and fun to sew, and they fit wonderfully. This is the first pattern I've had where I've made more than one piece. I'm a beginner clothing maker. Highly recommend.
I’ve tried both designs with and without cap sleeves. It is simple to make and easy to wear. I am short from shoulder to breast so I took up the shoulders an inch and I’m a J cup so I did a small fba. However that’s being picky and even without the adjustments the tops were wearable. In fact as soon as I finish the Ames jeans (never made jeans), I’m planing on making a couple of new ones for this summer.
I finally got around to sewing up the muslin for the Springfield top this weekend and I am so impressed with the fit (size 18 C/D cup). I've never made a top that fit so exactly on first go before. I bought this pattern because the pieced back appeals to me for using up scraps - I have some linen and contrasting double gauze that I intend to use for my first "real" version of this top - and now that I know the fit is so good I'm eager to get going on it. Thanks for the great patterns for full-figured gals - as always this one is a winner.
I loved the concise instructions and helpful sew along post. I'm so very thankful for the care and attention given to these patterns. Love my springfield top (second garment ever) and feel pride wearing it to work. The option with curved seams in the back make for a built in sway back adjustment. I've never tried on anything like that before and was so pleased at the rear view. Sew every single pattern Jenny puts out if these fit you well - you won't regret it!
