Sewaholic Renfrew Pt. 4, 5 & 6

I can’t believe I only made my first Renfrew top early this year around February time. Now I have 6 versions – with still more to make.

Renfrew Pt 4

Made in polka dot poly jersey that’s been a stasher for yonks (since stash began actually) and it makes for a drapey lightweight top. I made this for the SewDots challenge, but I didn’t submit it because I decided I wasn’t particularly keen on the prizes.

Polka dots Renfrew – makes me feel jazzy!

Renfrew Pt 6.

Made from some John Kaldor fabric left over from another project. I just manged to squeeze in the scoop neck version with three-quarter length sleeves. Not bad for about 3/4meters of fabric. I am happy with this. I really quite love the dramatic floral print.

Renfrew Pt 5

Made in a ponte weight fabric bought in early days. I only had  one meter but I was determined to make this a cowl neck version. After much messing about – I got it to fit but had to sacrifice the cuffs and have a narrower hem band. In lieu of same colour cuffs I colour blocked with a lovely contrasting grey. I wear this a lot as layer under stuff. Rarely on its own though.

Neutral Renfrew – love the drape of this cowl – so much body to it.

That will do as far as Renfrews go for this year. Will I make more Renfrews in 2017? We will have to see………Have you made 6 of one pattern this year too? 

Thanks for stopping by, until next time, Happy Sewing!

Peace and love,

  1. These are all lovely. I have yet to make a cowl version but will soon. This year I have made eight Agnes. All different but all wearable. Looking forward to seeing your makes in the new year K xXx

    1. I will joing you on the Coco train. I made a Coco in November that I love and I have about 3 more fabrics lined up to become Cocos. Its so fast for me to make as well – I think I could make all 3 in a day as well :-).


  2. I am currently working on version 4 for me, using a velvet knit. Did you raise the neckline on the version without the cowl? Several have said it is very low; yours does not look too low.

    1. Velvet knit sound lush! I didnt raise the cowl neckline on mine – its the thing I liked the most about this pattern was that I didnt change a single thing to it.


  3. The Renfrew really has to be one of the best jersey tops out there, love all your versions especially the floral one. I’ve lost count of the number of Renfrews I’ve made, I’ve even used it to make a few sleeveless dresses with a round neck in a Scuba – so quick and easy! Looking forward to seeing more in 2017 🙂
