Sewaholic Renfrew Pt. 2


Hello all!

Happy Wednesday! All good things happen on a Wednesday – at least thats what I like to tell myself. My good thing is I have time to post one of my latest makes – another beloved Renfrew top. After falling hard and fast for my first one (link here) I immediately cut out another using Spoolette fabric. This stripe was from Lucky Fashion.

So I didn’t actually have enough fabric to make the cowl neck but I REALLY wanted this fabric to be a cowl neck. So what are you going to do? Well one part of the cowl neck is on straight grain and the other is on crossgrain. Its seemed to work :-).

My stripe matching is still in its infancy but its wearable. There is nothing I can add to the construction of this top that isn’t in the excellent instructions already. My next one is a scoop neck in a plain solid colour. Ali suggested making a dress using this as the top half and I am thinking of using the Moneta dress bottom…..creating some sort of Coleholic or Sewalette………I digress..

Right. On to pictures….(this past weekend was so gloriously sunny that I had to wear my sunglasses because I was squinting so much!)

I really cant stop gushing over how much I love these tops. But I shall spare you.

Two Renfrews = Love!

Couldn’t resist making a collage 🙂

Thank you for stopping by and until next time

Happy Sewing!

    1. Thank you! It worked out well – actually quite glad I didnt have enough fabric otherwise I may have never thought to make the cowl this way😃


  1. Necessity was the mother of genius here! I love how the stripes change direction on your cowl. It totally shows off the feature neck. I love this pattern too; now I have to try one in stripes!

    1. Thanks Corrine. Its such a quick top to make. No closures or hemming of any sort :-). Sleeves are installed in the flat. Addictively fast.
