Sometimes you can make something with a tried and true pattern and it still doesn’t work. For example, a recent Renfrew.
At first glance you notice those fantastic stripes and the texture. Then you realise that it is big. Way too big for a semi-fitted top. And what you don’t know is that it is also itchy and feels awful next to the skin.
This sweater knit was on the Darn Cheap Fabrics $2 per metre table, and I bought it just to play with. Due to the sweater knit texture, it was very hard to cut out accurately, despite using a pattern that I have used many times before. Hence it being too big. But the main problem is that I can’t wear it as a next-to-skin layer. The fabric would work in a coat or another overlayer, but not in a Renfrew for me. Off to the oppy with this one….
