Three Renfrews in Laguna jersey and Art Gallery knit

A few more long-sleeved Renfrews for my everyday winter wardrobe! I wear one of these as layering pieces almost every day during the colder months, and they’re such quick and easy projects to sew.

This was my first time sewing with the new Art Gallery knits (the yellow print shown here), and so far they seem to be very good quality. We’ll see how they hold up over time. The Laguna jersey (pink and blue) is my favorite choice for knit tops and holds up extremely well over many washes. Would highly recommend it.

More photos and additional thoughts on the new Art Gallery knits on my blog:

Material Notes

Robert Kaufman Laguna jersey in hot pink and royal blue.
Art Gallery Utopia knit in “Specks of Carambola” (yellow print) by Frances Newcombe.
Both knits are 95% cotton and 5% spandex.

    You chose some attractive fabrics and the fit is very nice! It’s a good reminder for me to focus on things I can wear a lot and to use fabric and finish to give them that special touch. :-)

      Thank you! I tend to sew a lot of basic garments, since that’s what I wear 99% of the time. It’s fun to be able to wear something handmade everyday, not just when I’m getting dressed up (which hardly ever happens, LOL).
