I made this Renfrew way back in May last year and then never wore it. Every time I put it on I just never felt nice in it. I would usually just donate such an item but this Renfrew was made from a linen knit which is beautiful. I just didn't like the unflattering arm and hem bands. Who needs extra bulk on their hips?! It was also too loose and baggy.

So I took to it with a pair of scissors, hacking off the the sleeves and side seams. I purchased 10cm of an organic cotton knit and bound the armholes. I then sewed up the side seams, securing the stitching at the ends with a centimetre of top stitching.
Voila! A new top. Perfect for layering and perfectly fitted. And saved from Vinnies!
