The Other Renfrew



Here's my other version of the Sewaholic Renfrew.  Actually I made this one first before Lizzy suggested the cowl version.

I also got this in Goldhawk Road and it's a more stable jersey with less slipping and sliding and curly edges, so good for a first try at a new pattern!

I went for the round neck since that is my usual t-shirt preference (although I am tempted to trace off the neckline of the Maria Denmark Kirsten Kimono tee and make a slash neck version) and long sleeves.

I really like it - it looks good with my denim Hummingbird skirt (oops, must blog my Hummingbirds!) and fits well with my winter palette.  I can't help but think that a broad shoulder adjustment might get rid of those slight draglines on the shoulder?  I guess as Tasia drafts for a pear shape that perhaps her shoulders are relatively narrow?  Maybe I'll try it on a future version (I'm sure there will be many!).



Total aside - do you like my new boy shoes?  You can't tell from the pic but they are glittery!  N loves them but thinks i should keep them for parties.

  1. Hi, you've done a great job on this top- it's such a good idea to build up a good selection of basics like tshirts in your wardrobe, it's something I totally need to work on!
