I've been sewing and sewing... a special project that's not quite ready for prime time. In the meantime, I whipped up a Sewaholic Patterns Renfrew tee. Easy, peasy. I'm kind of a mixer-matcher when it comes to patterns, so I made view B, short sleeves... check... with the view A neckline... scoop neck... check! And I ditched the band.
The best part about this pattern? No alterations! Well, one teeny one, and I hardly call it an alteration. I traced the size 10, and around the waistline level, I veered out to the size 12. The length without the band is perfect for my short little self. I could probably even cut the size 8 for the top part (or just a straight size 10), but I like my knit tops a little loose. The next one (and there will be a next one) I may raise the neckline just a skosh.
Anyway. I'm calling this color cadet blue, and it's a short sleeve t-shirt. Meet the Renfrew Blue:
