Floral Springfield Top

Another Springfield Top pattern from Cashmerette. I loved the fit of the first few Springfield tops that I sewed up, and I had just enough of this floral fabric left after making a Cashmerette Montrose top to almost make a Springfield Top too!

Cropped Lou Box Top

I had sewn a few earlier versions of this Lou Box Top from SewDIY but have given them away to friends or chopped them up to make smaller versions for other friends.

Rivermont Peplum in black ponte

I’ve made so.many.versions of Cashmerette‘s Rivermont Dress & Peplum pattern. I got this black ponte from Tessuti in Australia. And was only able to make both a peplum and dress from this black fabric with some serious pattern tetris work.
