I feel a bit silly introducing you to my 1st ever Sewaholic pattern. Am I the only person in the blogasphere who doesn’t own one??? Please tell me I’m not alone…..
I was really struggling what to make for this challenge. This week has been so so busy…. I’ve watched 2 games of cricket, played 3 rounds of golf, worked one 12 hour night shift and watched my hubby in the Knarsborough’s 49th annual bed race. So when I discovered Sewaholic now had PDF patterns to buy I thought I’d give them a whirl.
This is totally irrelevant until you see the setting for my photo shoot,,,,no lush back drop for me….he’ll no, my Renfrew is making it’s debut in a garage workshop….! (This is where the A team bed started it’s journey at the crack of dawn today).
Check out the pattern matching! This was no easy task.
If I’m going to make a nice easy Renfrew why not throw a spanner in the works and have some tricky pattern matching to content with!
I drew some of the fabric’s pattern onto the paper so when I flipped it I could align it so the pieces were symmetrical. I did the for the front and back pieces and it works really well.
I really love this top and think I’ll wear it loads…..except on the golf course, which seems really daft as it’s plaid and looks rather golfy…. Doh! Over in the UK us lady golfers have to have collars on our shirts. Well, that’s a challenge in itself. Watch this space, I’m sure I will find a post with a collared Renfrew, any suggestions??
What I love…..
The easy peasy instructions
What I don’t love….
Nothing really, except I needed to go down 3 sizes in the hips.
Will I make it again
Apologies for no link to my blog yet, I’ve had to do all this on my iPhone so was a bit tricky and struggling. Will sort it out tomorrow if that’s ok 😃
