Description

I love the Renfrew pattern, but unfortunately I don’t think this fabric was a good fit for this top. The zebra print is too bright/busy, the vertical stripes aren’t doing much for me, and the fit is a little too tight since this jersey didn’t stretch as much as I had expected. Oh well! Maybe I can still wear it under sweaters? : )

What do you think? Is this top wearable??

    I think its very bright, but if you add a bright chunky necklace, i think you could balance it. Just a thought.

      Oh, good idea, thanks! Something to break it up a bit.

    I think it looks really cute on you! I know it didn’t come out the way you wanted it to, but that doesn’t mean it’s a fail, just that it will fill a different role.

      Thanks, and good point. Perhaps I need to re-think how I could “make it work.” Where’s Tim Gunn when I need him? :)
