Yesterday I was reading comments on a sewing blog. One posted comment said that she found this blog by googling a pattern she wanted to make. She was googling the pattern so she could "see" how others had sewn the pattern, that she was wanting to sew.
Now why hadn't I thought of that?
So I googled the Springfield Top and came up with 6 sewists who beautifully made this top.
I was a bit surprised that only one of those amazing sewists made their top kind of (but not really) similar to mine. :o)
I was happy to see one amazing sewist with a body shape similar to mine who used the pattern to make a dress too. Mine is a tunic. From her photos and our similar shape, I could see the pattern fit her in the same way as my tunic fit me. (as a larger busted woman)
I was bit worried I might be overly critiqued by how mine "hangs" on me.
Unless we can see and touch a sewists end product in person, can we really judge where improvements could be made?
We could drive ourselves crazy with "perfection" or showing off things like french seams.
Life is short, sew only what you love. And I do love the Springfield Top pattern.
Also I bought my own pattern, no one asked me to make it. These posts are for me only. I don't earn money or get kick backs from anyone! :o)
It is a very very comfy and perfectly roomy for getting up and down chasing little boys! I will make many more.
This will be a go to pattern for me. I give the Springfield top a 10 out of 10! Thank You Jenny! (no I do not personally know Jenny, but I've watched enough utube videos with her in them to feel like I can "shout" out to her ;o)
My favorite- is the back. It is quite feminine. I like to think of my style as feminine /Lagenlook/Wood Fairies/ and Scandinavian Grandma rolled into one! ;o)
This is how I picture me! Apron, Fair Isle costume, and lace. ;o)
So what will I sew next? Hmm sadly nothing more for me for a while. First I must recover from my illness. And then-
I still have the 10 cut, pairs of boy sweat pants, a huge fleece dog bed for 3 dogs, and then there's this young man below-
He is the same height as me at age 13. And running out of clothes quickly! Isn't his outfit sad? Poor guy. I need to start cutting now! aack! Love my sweet sweet young man!
Happy Creating! (((HUGS))) God Bless!
