Cashmerette Springfield top again

When I first sewed the Cashmerette Springfield top I sewed it a size too big, but I thought that it was definitely worth taking the pattern out for another try.  A month or so ago I did exactly that, and sewed view B in size 12 C/D.

The fabric is hand-woven Thai cotton, the leftovers from a dress that I made earlier in the year (and love dearly and wear quite often). I had just enough to eke out view B, which is the version with back princess seams. I didn’t alter the pattern at all – and this is the result!

Surely there is a built-in swayback alteration to this pattern! It fits so closely through the back without being tight, yet there is plenty of room in the front for my generous tummy.

I really liked sewing this fabric. The bias cut strips that finish the armholes and neckline are from the same cotton. It presses and sews very nicely, topstitches beautifully, and it’s great to wear a it relaxes into the shape of your body.

The pattern descriptions is as follows: Make room in your closet for the Springfield Top! This woven shell is ideal for layering under a cardigan or pairing with dark jeans and your favorite heels. View A features a loose, swingy silhouette and optional hem band, while View B uses back princess seams to beautifully skim your curves. Both variations have scooped necklines, back yokes, and comfortably split side seams. Bring on the weekend!

I am so impressed with this top.  It’s a definite woven fabric winner.  No gaping, nice details, lovely fit.

  1. I’m blown away by the beautifully crafted back. Yoke that allows for the adjustment to lower back a little to accomodate ‘dowagers hump ‘ from years of sewing and computer work! A total winner

  2. As almost always, you leave me thinking I need yet another pattern. *Sigh*. I’ve not yet tried a Cashmerette Pattern. Maybe this would be a good one to start.
