Remember I said the other day that I'd made two Renfrew tops last week before leaving for New York? Here's the other one:
OK, I kind of hate this picture because I look dorktastic. But the truth is, this is how I look much of the time. No, the truth really is, this is actually better than I look much of the time, LOL! I do usually make at least a small effort when I take pictures for the blog!
Anyway, you've all seen 8 bazillion Renfrews by now, but I wanted to show you this one because I really love how the cowl drapes. This is a very soft and slinky cotton/rayon jersey I got from Girl Charlee. I probably should have shortened the body a little to account for that slinkiness, but since I didn't, it can be worn with pants with a lower rise, which is a good thing. It's really too long for this old skirt from J.Crew, but the colors work well together.
I was also very proud of myself when I made this top last week that I paid attention to my print direction, so the birds are not upside down on the outside of my cowl. Yay me!
And can I just say, last night I finally watched the first two episodes of The Great British Sewing Bee and I just loved it! Are any of you watching?
