Here’s what I’ve been up to! Sewing and wearing Renfrew’s all winter long. And I’m still not sick of them!
I’ve made them in a variety of fabrics and played with seam allowances to create closer or looser fit, depending on my objectives.
This Grey Spotted version is my favourite – and most worn. It’s deliberately loose and works on its own as well as a pullover with a layer underneath.
Here it is over the Funky Red Floral: (it’s not that transparent in real life…the flash just picks up everything!)
And here’s a red one, sewn with 1/4 seam allowances to create a looser fit, for layering:
This is a gorgeously soft, fine jersey version. Feels fabulous to wear! – on it’s own or under something.
And this one is a heavier, sturdier, poly-knit something-or-other…I like the subtle raised floral pattern and the way the cowl sits up.
You will note that they colour coordinate!!! Yes, I am finally getting better at SWAP (sewing with a plan).
The Grey Spotted, Funky Red Floral and Grey with Black Sleeves will be doing double time on a trip to northern climes later this year. I’ve been given strict instructions to PACK LIGHT this trip…and with these mix and matcher’s (and a few coordinating skirts I’ll post about soon), I’m all set!
