Do you remember when you started liking a certain color? I do! When I first saw Michelle William's mustard dress at the Oscars in 2006 I fell in love. On my recent trip to the Michael Levine loft I saw some jersey in almost the exact color, so I grabbed a few yards of it to make a Renfrew shirt.
This is my fourth Renfrew and second time using jersey for one. When I used jersey the first time, I complained about the collar looking too baggy. Johanna and Ginger suggested cutting the neckband piece a little shorter and it fixed the problem. Thanks for the suggestion, you two!
If you have been reading my blog for the last few months then you probably have read about my last three Renfrews, so I won't get too detailed on the sewing part of it. I added three inches in length like I usually do, but other than that there weren't any other modifications. Now that it's almost Fall I will probably have to start thinking about making some long sleeve versions. Yay, Fall!
