Ohhhh I get all excited when I get to give something away
I was so inspired by Handmade Jane‘s wonderful post about the Roma jersey  that I decided to make myself a top out of the Roma jersey. It is wonderful to sew with, so quick (It doesn’t need finishing as it is a stable knit so won’t fray) and when you wear it it is all warm and snuggly!
I am going to give away a wonderful Sewaholic Renfrew top pattern and Roma jersey fabric in the colour of your choice to make it. Hell I will even throw in a reel of thread to match so you won’t have to leave the house to make this perfect winter top.
What colour would you pick Grey MarlBlack, Navy, Forest Marl or Aubergine?
The Renfrew is the perfect top pattern for those of you scared of sewing with jersey, it has clever bands round the hem and sleeve so no worries about wobbly bottoms *insert you own joke here* and the Roma jersey is the perfect fabric to make it with.


  • Follow my blog

    Such a great giveaway! I've also wanted the Renfrew pattern for a while. I prefer short-sleeved t-shirts, so I would make view B in grey marl.
    Great online shop btw, have been there several times dreaming of what I would buy if I lived in the UK.

    I love the forest marle colour and I think I would make the cowl neck version (view C). Thank you for a lovely year of blogging and a great competition!

    Thanks for the opportunity!

    I love view B neckline with view C sleeves in forest marl, and then I'd probably attempt to do a boatneck version (getting ahead of myself here) in the aubergine!

    i love your blog and website, it always inspires me when i lack focus, anyway – i would make b in the aubergine as its looks a lovely cosy colour that will go with everything this season, if i won the giveaway then i would make lots of different variations of the renfrew!

    Like @rainjerette, I found your blog through HandMade Jane. I also follow Mimi G (Isn't she jsut the coolest person? The way she puts her OOTD is simply inspiring). If I was to win I'd made version B in Navy to start off with – It's currently Summer time in Australia… Being Dark skinned, I carry navy pretty well. But to be honest, I fear that I might end up like Andrea (at Four Square walls) and make 101 versions of it. 😉

    I would like to make view A (I'm a beginner so keep it simple) in Forest Marl (because I always go for green when it is available, and it would go with my brown trousers that I always struggle to find things for).

    Thank you soooo much everyone for entering the giveaway, sorry I have not had time to post a comment for all of you but I have been overwhelmed!

    Still time to enter make sure you tell your friends!

    Hi, thanks for this lovely giveaway. I would make the B pattern in Aubergine as I'm still a sewing newbie and that looks the easiest 😛

    I love the look of the C though, it looks lovely and warm!

    Your blog is lovely, I just found you through Handmade Jane's blog. I think I'd go for the scoop neck and long sleeves in navy, though I'd be tempted to add a big cream bow to the neckline too!
