The Renfrew-Kimono Tee

 May proved I have very few made-by-me tops. And very few print tops.

I tried the Kristen kimono tee and liked its  quick, easy construction. And because I put in a back seam, it took about 0.75 m of fabric. Hmmm

I also like the renfrew tee. So I combined the two. You can see the extra width thru' the hips on my mash up below.

I ordered two one-meter pieces of Laguna knit from Hawthorne Threads. They are very nice knits and I've read they wear well.
So I now have the Pinwheel tee and the Cochlea tee.  Bonus: I figued out what I was doing wrong with the Renfrew neck binding- hooray!
I hope to move on to the Balcarra blouse this weekend.

  1. I need to make some of these for the warmer weather. They look quite quick to put together, too. You choose lovely fabrics. It will be interesting to see then Belcarra tops too - they look like great basics.
