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
  • Take a look at the Roma jersey

Happy sewing xxx

    I would make View A in the beautiful Aubergine, maybe making a longer version :)I have just bought some Roma in the Navy for a wonderfully cosy wraparound dress and this would be perfect for wearing underneath :))) Sarah

    I think I would go with the gray marl because it looked great in Handmade Jane's post. That dress looked stunning.

    I would make up version A of the top because I need long sleeves in this weather but aren't a fan of the cowl neck in version c.

    Ohhh – what a fab giveaway. The roma looks lovely and I've read so many great things about the renfrew pattern! It's a really tough choice between the aubergine and forest marl but I think I"ll go for the latter (everything I've bough has been aubergine lately!) and I'd do view C but with view A arms to keep me extra cosy warm 🙂

  4. Sarah_L_N says:

    I would use the grey marl to make version C 🙂 I absolutely love the aubergine, but sadly it is not a good colour to put next to my face, so I have to go for skirts in that colour, rather than tops!

  5. Claire Cooper says:

    now they style is easy – cowl neck version with full length sleeves. I've been eyeing this pattern up for a while, but haven't got around to getting it yet. As for Colour I'm torn between Aubergine and forest. but I think I'd go for the forest!

  6. Kat says:

    Ohh. I have never dared to sew with jersey before, but this might just be the kick I need! View C is lovely with the cowl neck. I would make it in aubergine or forest, if only to get me out of my Make All The Grey Things rut… (I do love grey!)

    Hi, I came by your blog via Handmade Jane whom I follow. So I'm now a follower, checking out the fabric and it's a tie between the Forest Marl and Aubergine. LOVELY fabric!

    I love cowl necks, so choosing a style was easy. As for colour, I like them all, but would probably go for navy. A bit boring, but goes pretty much with everything.

    I found you via Handmade Jane and have enjoyed browsing through your blog.

    I have been admiring the Renfrew for a while now. I'd love to make the cowl neck version in the Aubergine fabric. What a great giveaway!

    Thank you for cheering up these winter days with a giveaway.

    The aubergine is divine, and would look lovely in version B (but with long sleeves)

    The fabric looks lovely, as much as I like the aubergine, I would plump for the Forest Marl with the cowl neck. Good shape for my body and I am trying to get more green in my wardrobe! 🙂

    Hi, I found your site via Jane's blog. Her dress is great so I'd love to join in!

    My choice would be the beautiful and versatile navy Roma jersey made up in View C. I have yet to try the Renfrew top, but am a fan of knits and cowl necklines. Such a lovely and generous give-away, thanks 🙂

    So glad to have found your shop (through Handmade Jane) – it can be hard to find good apparel fabric stores. I'd love to own the Renfrew and I'd start by making view C in aubergine, but I'd make all views in time. I love love love sewing with ponte knit and you have a great selection! Thanks for offering this giveaway! poldapop[at]gmail[dot]com
