St. Patrick’s Day Renfrew Tunic

Shamrock tunic

Slight detour from our current quilting kick I’ve been on. As you may recall, March 17 is St. Patrick’s day. I bought this fun shamrock jersey last year and I was determined this year to have a top out of it to wear.

So I pulled out the pattern for the Sewaholic Renfrew top that I had previously made. Because I had already made it, I pretty much knew what I was doing and knew that i would fit me (this is a size 6). I altered it slightly but extending it 6 inches in length. That was the only change — the band stayed the same size.

I was able to stitch the whole thing up in an evening, probably a couple hours and was quite happy with it! The fabric wasn’t the softest, but it worked for what I needed and I’m sure I’ll wear it again next year. 🙂
