Most t-shirts are not simple, but this one is! Sewaholic Renfrew

Bamboo jersey (very soft)


Renfrew by Sewaholic.
These patterns are made for pear shaped women.  I found quickly that I am not pear shaped and took in from the underarm to the hip a few inches.  By the looks of the picture, I had room to remove a little more fabric.  The shoulders and bust fit very well.  A very nicely drafted pattern.  This is a great t-shirt pattern for those without a coverstitch machine.  The sleeve and waistband are done very well.  I personally prefer my coverstitch machine.  There is less bulk when I use it.

I have been noticing wrinkles under my arms in many tops including RTW.  I need to make the sloping shoulder adjustment.  Next time.........


  1. I like the look of this top, but avoided this pattern because is it for pears. Mind you, a simple alteration, so I think I will buy it :) Looks lovely on you.
