Vogue 8926 Linen Jacket and Renfrew Top

 Linen and warmer temperatures just go together, right?  When I spotted this Rag and Bone Linen on Mood Fabrics site, I knew I had to have it.  The fabric is sold by the panel and I ordered 2 panels which was just enough to squeeze out this jacket.     Now what to make with this fabulous linen?  I found some ideas on Pinterest, mainly unstructured tops with some fun play on the stripes.  That seemed like a good idea to start but I wasn't quite sure.  Next step was to look through my patterns and I found  Vogue 8926 and knew I had found a winner.

Renfrew Top

Style Maker Fabrics' Crinkle Rayon Challis Shibori dyed fabric made into a Sewaholic Renfrew top

When the temperatures warm up, I have a repeat performance from the previous year.  What is that you ask?  I know you just can't wait to hear.  I have no tops to wear.
