Pattern 5: Sewaholic

My Choice for Pattern 5
We are constantly searching for unique new patterns for our store and recently came across some very cute patterns for the modern seamstress created by a fellow sewing blogger named Tasia.  She is from Vancouver, BC, Canada and her pattern line is called Sewaholic Patterns.   Sewaholic patterns include a variety of great pieces for everyone’s wardrobe including a very classy “Cambie Dress”, the stylish “Minoru Jacket”, and the perfect basic tee called the “Renfrew”.  We decided to give these patterns a try in support of another small business who is trying to make it in a world dominated by big corporations!  The patterns arrived today just in time for my fifth pattern to be sewn.

I’ve decided to first start with the basic knit tee, the “Renfrew” pattern.  I’ve always wanted a good pattern for a fitted basic tee, but I have never had luck finding the right pattern.  I have used McCalls, Simplicity, and Butterick tee shirt patterns before, but the results have always been disappointing leaving me with an unfitted, unstylish knit shirt to join my other failed sewing projects that reside in a basket in the back of my sewing closet.  The "Renfrew" pattern has options for long sleeves, 3/4 length, and short sleeves along with scoop neck, V-neck, and cowl neck styles to choose from.  I am going to make the basic short sleeve V-neck style to see if the perfect tee shirt pattern really does exist. 

Here are some examples of the finished products from the pattern designer, Tasia.   
I really like the band around the bottom of this shirt because that means I won't have to hem it!  I am often disappointed with the hemline when using knits, and now I get to avoid hemming altogether. I can't wait to start sewing this tomorrow.
