Buying this Springfield Top pattern from Cashmerette was something I sat on for ages. It seemed too simple to purchase. Not that I have any skills making my own patterns, but I suppose I just thought I should be able to make do.
This Peplum top is a free plus size sewing patterns for beginners from in Peppermint Magazine in Australia and is drafted by the lovely Emily from In The Folds.

I’ve made so.many.versions of Cashmerette‘s Rivermont Dress & Peplum pattern. I got this grey ponte from Tessuti in Australia. I had enough fabric to make a peplum, and I’ve also made a currently unfinished Rivermont skirt!
