So I finally got around to writing my review of the Sewaholic Renfrew on PatternReview. The actual review is here with all the links and such. But here it is as well.
A knit top with three variations for sleeves and three variations for neck. Mix and match!
0-16. I made a 6 which is pretty much what I should be based on the measurements.
Did it look like the photo/drawing on the pattern envelope once you were done sewing with it?
Pretty spot on.
Were the instructions easy to follow?
What did you particularly like or dislike about the pattern?
I’ve only made a couple other things out of knit. Knit and my serger kinda scare me. Or rather, they did scare me. This pattern really helped me start to love my serger. It looks like a real shirt! Like I would buy in the store! If you’re scared of knits, this is an excellent pattern to start with. There’s nothing I disliked about the pattern.
Some rayon spandex stuff I had bought to mess around with. But this has turned out to be one of my favorite shirts even though it was “mess around” fabric.
Pattern alterations or any design changes you made:
None. I did a straight view A.
Would you sew it again? Would you recommend it to others?
Yes! In fact, I’ve already bought fabric for two more casual shirts. I want to try it out of some nicer fabrics for a fancier look, too. I highly recommend it to anyone looking to try knits or who just wants a solid knit shirt pattern.
You should buy this pattern. Now.
Additional Information: I’ve got lots of photos on my blog showing construction details for those interesting.
