When I posted my first Renfrew top last month, Lisa very kindly made a comment introducing me to Girl Charlee online fabric shop. Of course, I took a gander straight away, and immediately fell in love with this bird-print fabric:
This is another cotton/rayon blend jersey, very soft and slinky. You may have noticed that all of my recent sewing projects except for the turquoise Clovers have been knits, and I'm finding it very interesting that each fiber blend behaves a little differently. This one has a lot of drape, and therefore feels like it's a little bigger than the more stable orange fabric I showed yesterday. However, I've been using the same size 6 pattern tracing throughout!
On yesterday's top and on this one, I did finally include some stay tape at the shoulders. I'm still not convinced it's necessary, but it will be interesting to see if these two tops hold up better than the first two I made.
