In looking over my spare summer wardrobe before MeMadeMay I remembered a red Renfrew almost never worn.
Mind you, we’d already had several days flirting entirely too closely with 90℉ when this Renfrew came to light. But would I wear it?
I doubt I’ve worn it more than once or twice since completion several years ago. 😱
Why? It’s a solid medium weight cotton knit and the fit is snug. But in heat & humidity anything even slightly heavy or snug doesn’t get worn. It was forgotten during cooler weather.
Enter some Snug Hug rayon bias tape, stitched to those neatly trimmed seams where short sleeves used to be.
Would that be enough to put this back on the wearable list?
Happily, it was! And it’s been in constant rotation along with some stretch denim shorts made from leftovers of my (2014!) denim winter maxi skirt.
This is why we keep a fabric stash!
