After making a series of Renfrews this fall (5 in total, not all blogged), I was ready to try out a new t-shirt pattern. This is the free Uvita Top by Itch to Stitch. It has a dropped shoulder–a first for me–and relaxed silhouette.
I saw this pattern as soon as it came out but wasn’t sure that it was for me until I saw this version by Handmade by Lara Liz. I already had similar fabric in my stash, so I basically copied her version. Thanks for the inspiriation, Lara!
This fabric was part of a knit bundle from So Sew English Fabrics that I bought back in August to make my mom a shirt for her birthday. I made her a v-neck Sewaholic Renfrew with 3/4 sleeves. I didn’t take any pictures of it, but she says that she loves it. The fabric bundle came with 2 yards of a light blue rayon spandex jersey and 2 yards of this poly floral jersey, and I was able to get a good number of projects out of it. From the light blue jersey I made a long-sleeve Renfrew for myself, a newborn mermaid gown from See Kate Sew, and a matching hat. All together I made three shirts plus a baby gift from the bundle, and there are still some scraps left, too, which will be made into baby hats and mittens. Not bad for $25!
