I have been a little MIA lately, and I'm sorry for that. There's been a lot of secret sewing going on, some of which I can reveal soon, some later.
But now that I'm done with the secret sewing, I needed a quick selfish project, so naturally I grabbed my Renfrew pattern. I love how quickly and easily it sews up, and all on my serger, too.
This fabric has been in my stash a couple of years, and I've always planned to make a cowl neck Renfrew out of it. About time I got around to it. The fabric is so cool. It looks like a plain old polka dot, but in fact the dots are metallic silver paint, so they add some texture to the heathered jersey.
I made this one long sleeved, since the weather is getting chilly around here.
And of course, I needed the cowl! This is my favorite feature of the Renfrew pattern. The cowl is so nicely shaped and drapes well in any fabric weight.
Needless to say, It's great to have a nice, new top to wear! Next up is a coat for Myra, but before that, I'll have some of that secret sewing to reveal! Can't wait to show you!!
In other news, I wanted to make sure you had all heard about the new Sewcialist blog!
