But I changed it up this time! I made View C, with the cowl neck and the three quarter sleeves. In my bird print fabric. I just need to make one more, and then I'll have one for every day of the week.
When I made my first Renfrew, way back in June, I was so anxious to get started that I only traced the pieces for the scoop neck and short sleeves. Yesterday afternoon, knowing that Hubby would be out this morning playing basketball and thus enabling me to have a sewing morning, I traced out all the other pieces. So now I can make any Renfrew I want, any time I want. Ha!
I was almost finished by the time he got home. I got a little distracted and didn't check the placement of the birds on the waistband piece, so I've got some mirror-image bird business going on down there. Oh well.
I was a little surprised by how short the three quarter sleeves ended up being (and I've got slightly short arms) - I guess I was expecting bracelet length. And I feel like it's a teensy bit wide across the shoulders - probably because when I did those seams, I didn't realize that the tension dials on my serger had shifted, so they got stretched out a little. Oh well.
As soon as I finished it, we headed out the door to the local banh mi shop for lunch, closely followed by frozen yogurt in Chinatown, eaten on the way to the park. It's a beautiful day - really too hot for this top.
Guess I'll have to change into one of my other Renfrews.
