To do some stress-free sewing I whipped up another renfrew, because who doesn't love this pattern! Since spring is on its way I went with short sleeve.
I had just 1 yard of 44" Charley Harper Organic knit (Bank Swallow Blue). It worked out perfectly - just enough. I was saving this fabric for a special tee for me. At $16.50 per yard, there was no room for error. Man I love those little birds :) I picked up the fabric last year February. The solid fabric is from Purpleseamstress (teal). It matched pretty much perfectly.
I used the same size as my others. I've added a few pounds back on since my uber sickness in August last year. And I'm ok with this. I feel a bit healthier. The top fits great. Shoulders/bust 6, waist 8, hip 12. 1/2" square shoulder adjustment. I keep forgetting to add 1/2" to the back piece at the sides to accommodate my large rear. The shirt sort of pulls a bit there.
That's it for today, I'll share some more when I
bribe have a chance to get Miss K to put things on to take pictures.
