The Big List of Renfrew Mods

I've been wanting to put this list together for a while. Everyone loves the Renfrew top from Sewaholic right? It's a great basic and easy to sew to boot!
All around the blogosphere, people have been making their own modifications. They are really inspiring and a great encouragement to have a go at pattern mods. I've tried two mods out so far and I have a few more to try out before I'm satisfied!
So here's the list. Look, we even have a fancy button! Let's spread the Renfrew love!


I've added pictures of some, but not all. I didn't want the post tooo massive. That said, if you have any more awesome mods, link me up and I'll add see if I can them in! Oh, and I have checked for permission with these people of course.

Boat necks:
Each of these use a different method to finish the neckline!
