Renfrew 2 and Renfrew 3

I love this pattern! I think this is the first time ever that I've used the same pattern 3 times in less than a month! The Sewaholic Renfrew tee shirt is officially a TNT! The 2nd and 3rd versions were short sleeve V-necks. I made it just like the first one, size wise, and only raised the v-neck 1".

Meet the Renfrew Black Stripe. I had this blue ITY knit left over from making a yoga skirt, and was hoping there was enough for something else. It was, but I didn't have the length for the front bodice without cutting it in half (or thereabouts). I didn't make the stripe go all the way around because I just didn't want to bother with matching. I know. Lazy. Biggest design change... no sleeve band, and I lengthened the sleeve just a bit.

The Renfrew Pink. I used a jersey knit from, possibly a bamboo. It's pretty thin, but making it a little bit loose helps avoid seeing all the lumps and bumps. I love this color, and will be wearing this a lot! Can't see them too well, but I did use the bands on the sleeves this time.

I've got more knits waiting to become tees, but currently under the needle is another Colette Jasmine top with a couple of twists. I should have finished it yesterday, but Roland bought me an iPad. Um, not much got done after it arrived...


  1. I've been wanting to purchase the renfrew top pattern for months. Yours are nice. Might have to get this one.

  2. love it! love the embellishment across the waist is a great touch!

  3. lovely, I especially like the blue one.

  4. Lovely! The patterned fabric w/ the stripe is so fun!

  5. Awesome Elle! I'm also completely enamored with the Renfrew and have stitched up 3 this month too (so far all 3/4 sleeve versions)! I love your super clever (and very flattering) pieced detail --- I might have to borrow that idea, perhaps to marry scraps from a couple different knits to make a hybrid tee LOL! So smitten with that hot pink over here as well :D
