Hello, all! As I've mentioned before, I was a pattern tester for the brand, spanking new Sewaholic Renfrew pattern, a knit top pattern with three interchangeable necklines and sleeve lengths for a total of nine different tops. As I've said in my previous post, it's the pattern that keeps on giving.
More often than not, when sewing knits comes up, other sewers will say that either that 1) they're afraid of sewing knits, or 2) that they hate sewing knits, based on some previous bad experience.
But I think sewing knits is so liberating, an incredible part of sewing know-how. More than half of my wardrobe is knit and I suspect we all have a few knits on hand because they're comfortable, forgiving and versatile. Why not spend some time sewing knits for yourself? An added bonus: They whip up in no time, a real treat between long or hard sewing projects.
So I'd like to give this pattern away and share my love of sewing knits. I know many of you clever gals have already snapped one up in the pre-sale, but if not, here's the info:
To enter: Simply leave a comment with your email address. If you'd like to share, I'd love to to hear how you might use the pattern as I think it's so versatile (and could even be easily lengthened into a tunic or dress!).
The giveaway closes at the end of Wednesday, February 8. Will ship worldwide.
In closing, here's some Renfrew inspiration: Amy of Sew Well made the Renfrew four times! And I just love anything very purple person makes, and her Renfrews are lovely. Plus many more are floating around the blogosphere. :)
