Sewaholic 1201 – Because You Can Always Use Another Renfrew Top in Your Closet

It is no surprise that the Sewaholic Renfrew top was “A Best Pattern of 2012” on PatternReview.com. There’s so much to like about this pattern.

The pattern offers three neckline variations as well as three sleeve variations. The pattern comes with all sizes in one envelope; 0-16. I made size 4. Pattern details available here.

The pattern is for knits but if you don’t have a serger you can still whip this one up easily. It offers 5/8″ seams and banded hems for the sleeves and body. I sewed the top with the knit stitch on my regular machine followed by a three-thread stitch on my serger.

The fashion knit is a remnant from Tissus Mode De L’Orme in Granby, Quebec. I love their fabric selection and always stock up when I’m visiting that area.

This is my fourth version of this pattern and it won’t be my last. The top is a quick and satisfying project.

Here are my previous three tops:

  1. I love the Refrew top, but haven’t purchased it because I have a couple vogues that are similar. But I see that everyone seems to love it when they review it. Do you think the draft is that much better that I should take the plunge?

    • That’s a tough question. I don’t have any other pattern like it so the Renfrew is my go-to pattern when it comes to this kind of top. It is very well drafted and I like the bands a lot. I don’t think you would regret purchasing it because it is a versatile pattern.

  2. I’m a fan of this pattern as well, Lucy. I noticed to day that one of my favorites is beginning to pick — so time for another one. If only I had access to your fabulous stash! This is great — and perfect with jeans!
