Sewaholic Renfrew top

I made a shirt! When making things for myself, I have a tendency of attempting sewing projects to either never finish them, or scrap them because they don't turn out right. That's not the case this time! Following Sewaholic's renfrew top pattern, I made view B, and I have to say, I LOVE it! The pictures really don't do it justice. The shirt was pretty quick to throw together, and once I figured out exactly what I was doing, pretty simple. I wouldn't say this is a beginner pattern, but an advanced beginner should be able to finish it, especially with the invention of google.



Did you ever realize how awesome google is? I was a little comnfused when sewing the neckline, since I had never done it before, but one quick google search, and I had all the confidence I needed to continue forward. I love the v-neck, which was much easier than I expected, and really makes the shirt look polished.



The shirt also has a band at the bottom, and at the end of the sleeves. This made the shirt much easier, since it didn't involve hemming. As much as I love sewing, I really hate hemming, especially when working with knits.

Overall, I would definately recommend this pattern to anyone looking for a simple top pattern. I have already started on another, view c this time, that will hopefully turn out just as well.

*Sorry for the rough pictures. the shirt didn't look right when it wasn't being worn, but the lighting and the mirror at work aren't the best.
