It took three tries to get the Springfield made in a way I really liked and I’m still working on the finer points of fit. The instructions and tutorials available from Cashmerette are very helpful. I also got great advice from people in the Facebook group for getting better fit. The shoulders are made more like a tank top than a shell in my opinion and I make it with wider straps for better bra coverage.
I enjoyed this pattern which accommodates the big boobs. I finally am getting a good fit in the armholes and bust in a tank. I am modifying the neck/ shoulder opening slightly inward, but that's an adjustment I generally need to make for my body.
I love this pattern. The fitted back is a joy. I made it in silk and used French seams etc. It has been admired and I shall make more. I had to grade between sizes to fit my “interesting “ figure but I am delighted with the outcome.
I like the pattern but found the arm holes cut in a bit at the front curve. I think this was because I may have chosen the wrong size and I'm sure if I size up it will be fine. I like that the back is shaped creates a good fit
