Two Gingers and a Renfrew

If you weren't into sewing that title would sound a little weird.

Here's what I've been up to...

Ginger Skirt #1 
fabric: sueded twill in Charcoal from Fashion Fabrics Club
I was seriously in need of a go-with-everything skirt, and this works for me!  I'm going to toss out a few ill-fitting skirts in my closet, not naming any names, black cord Gap skirt. 

 Ginger Skirt #2
For this version, I was inspired by Sara at Sew Sweetness.  I loved this Ginger she made in a home decor weight fabric.  I had to eliminate the front seam on the pattern because I didn't want any mistakes matching that distinct pattern. 

Renfrew Top
fabric: interlock knit from JoAnn Fabrics
The fabric for this top is an exact match for my Beignet Skirt.
I bought them at the same time, it was one of the only decent colors I could find, but I just happen to love deep red.

Both patterns were SO super easy and fast!  I would recommend these two patterns to anyone, even a beginner.  The directions are very clear and they can be whipped up in no time with many, many options for customization. 

Here are a few more photos because my tripod was working today!

Some of the outtakes were pretty funny, with Travis "helping" with the tripod.
 Happy Wednesday!



  1. Your Gingers look so good on you! I'd forgotten how much I like this pattern... I wish I owned it!

    1. Thank you! I resisted buying it for a long time, because I own so many skirt patterns, but I'm glad I got it now. I feel like with the more expensive patterns if you use them multiple times you can get your money's worth. This is a quick and easy make, so I know I'll use it lots!
