I have often looked at this pattern but dithered! However I was pleased with the easy to follow instructions and it was good to have different options to follow. Next version awaits!
I made a wearable muslin using my closest bust measurements and per website info chose cup size G/H. I had to make some adjustments for gaping neckline, large armhole, lowering and shortening bust dart. I ended up with a lovely top That I’ve worn several times. I am in the process of doing another muslin using my upper bust measurement and grading out at the bust line. To see if I would need to make fewer pattern adjustments. Once I’ve perfected this I have in mind to make several including the hacks shown.
This was my first cashmerette make. The Springfield was easy to sew and fits like a dream. I liked the different pieces depending on your cup requirements. It makes an essential top that notch or two dressier than a basic tee but just as easy to wear and style. I bought and made more cashmerette patterns after trying this one and have more on my to make lust. Thank you for filling this gap in the market so beautifully!
So happy with pattern. The fit is brilliant. No adjustments needed. It was like a dream had come true - a pattern that I can use straight away and beautiful as well.
I've now made the Springfield 4 times and love it! I'm long waisted so I only have to make a simple adjustment to lower the dart and add some length but the fit is fantastic. The design options are great. My favorite make so far has been using double gauze gray with white dots as the body and the lower band trim in a white textured - perfect for Texas summer heat. My second favorite was chambray with a vertical stripe band but the stripes turned to a horizontal on the yolk. It's a great pattern!
