I am calling this my Holiday Mood top. This is the completed Renfrew top. The knit fabric is from Mood and my intention is to wear it for a holiday event with family members today, thus Holiday Mood.
This is a lovely knit fabric, super easy to work with and wish I had purchased more. The wrong side of the fabric, IMHO, I think could be a top as well. I remember making a knit top many years ago that was a gold metallic and it made me itch where the metallic threads would touch my skin. Metallic knits have come a long way baby!
Here is a close up of the collar. I wish I had draped the left side better.
And this is the waistline cuff, though it really sits at the hips; and the cuffs for the sleeves. You can make this without using the cuffs for a design change. I liked the look of them.
I will try to get my photographer to take photos before we visit family.
