Sleeveless Season: Cashmerette Webster Top

Blue Webster

Oh, wovens… how I miss you! I spent last year making jeans, tee shirts and outerwear. But, this year I needed something light for our summer vacation to California and cuuuttte.

I picked up the Webster when I was in Boston few months ago at Cashmerette HQ. So, while I technically didn’t pay for this pattern, all opinions are my own. And, my opinion is YASSS, Queen, slay!

I love love love the neckline. The V is deep but doesn’t show cleavage. It’s beautifully flattering. The back is equally interesting. In fact, my friend who took photos exclaimed, “CUTE!!” when she saw the back.

My Webster top is made up in a long stashed Marc by Marc Jacobs embroidered star voile. It’s lightweight with body and most of all is a solid that isn’t.

I did make some alterations for fit for my body that I’ll try and capture here. There is some video of it all (for the time being) on my Instagram page. If you go to my profile, under my name there’s a bubble that says “Webster Fit”.

  1. The front shoulder seam were rolling forward on me. So, I lengthened the front between the shoulder and bust by 1″ and shortened the back the same amount.
  2. 1/2″ swayback adjustment. These patterns have a sway back. I just need more
  3. Protruding seat adjustment. This added some length over my bum at center back and some width at the back side seam only.
  4. 1/4″ sloping shoulder adjustment (for a total of 1/2″)
  5. This pattern is a very loose casual fit. So, I used the 14 E/F which matches my full bust measurement of 43 and graded to a 12 in the waist / hip area even though I measure into a 16/18 in the hip.

I like that this pattern has an all-in-one-facing. That means no flipping out.

I finished the insides with French seams to keep it neat.

And, I loved this so much I immediately made a dress version which I’ll share soon!

  1. Cute, cute, cute! It is very flattering. I also love your Jalie crops. I like the capri length, but hate that huge crop leg in most RTW. I’m going to have to make some of these. Can’t wait to see the dress.

  2. I have this pattern sitting on my sewing table right now! I love this pattern too – I hadn’t opened it yet so I didn’t realize it has an all-in-one facing saving me the trouble of making one! This is my favourite finish on a sleeveless always πŸ™‚ Love yours! I’m just going to have to get to it πŸ™‚

    1. I felt the same way about the all in one facing! It’s such a good way to finish cleanly and NO FLIPPING OUTWARDS!

    1. Thank you! The instructions for the all in one facing are really good too.

  3. As a busty gal, I love that the neckline doesn’t show cleavage or bra straps, great job!! Do you think you will teach this pattern as a class at Domesticity? I no longer expose the world to my upper arms, any suggestions for a 3/4 sleeve summer top?

    1. πŸ˜… I thought about teaching it. But, it has a few too many steps to complete in a classroom setting 😌. Let me think on a suggested top! Maybe the Montrose. I hope to have a post on mine here soon.

  4. As my grandma would say, β€œLooks like it was made for you!” Oh wait! It was! I’m loving the back. It’s a very flattering top and the back really knocks it outta the park. Can’t wait to see the dress.

  5. I love the whole outfit. I wasn’t really sure about this top when it first came out, but I really like it on you! Maybe I need to buy it. πŸ™‚

    1. I think this is one is a real sleeper in the Cashmerette catalog.

  6. I know this is an olllllllld post, but I’ve been in your archives for the past hour :-p anyway, just here to say that I’m in Boston, too! If you’re ever up here again, I’d love to meet you.

    1. πŸ˜€ If I’m ever called back into Cashmerette service, I’ll let you know! Also, my husband’s firm has an office in Boston. We always talk about going up there for a long weekend.
