I recently tested the newest pattern from Sewaholic Patterns, the Renfrew Top. The version I made here is view A with the scoop neck and long sleeves. I used a fun green-and-white striped cotton knit from FineFabrics.com. The pattern was simple to sew up, and I couldn’t be happier with the result. It’s cute, flattering, and comfy. The bands at the hem, cuff, and neckline are brilliant. They give a perfect finish to the top and meant I was able to use my basic sewing machine for the entire thing. Hooray!
