I made another Renfrew shirt, this time a long-sleeved, cowl-neck version.
I bought the fabric at the Haagse Markt at the same stall where I found the purple wool for Esther’s coat. It was priced at 3 euros a metre, but he gave the rest of the bolt — about 1.5 metres — for the price of one. So 3 euro shirt, yay!
It was quite the puzzle to fit all the pattern pieces onto this remnant, especially with the long sleeves and the cowl neck, but it worked. I had to cut the waistband in the wrong direction, but that doesn’t really bother me.
With the tiny leftover scraps of fabric I made a tissue pouch using the same tutorial as always.
A tissue pouch to match your clothes — it’s the newest fashion. Everybody’s carrying one.
