I sewed up the City Girl Frock today! Love it!!! This is a super comfortable top. It was the final of the 4 Just Add Jeans tops I had to sew and I can’t wait to sew more!
Medium bust graded out to Large at the hips. Because of the change I made to the hemline (see below) this was perfect. Giving the top a bit of swing.
I made a slight high-low hemline because I love them. Used the 3/4 length sleeve and followed the pattern otherwise.
Gray heavy ponte knit from Jo-Ann Fabric & Craft.
What I would do differently:
Next time I will make the sleeves slightly shorter. I love, love the ponte knit but it is a big heavy for the cowl. Perfect for winter but when (if?) it ever warms up here I’ll be making a City Girl from a lighter fabric. Maybe a lightweight sweater knit.
It was FREEZING while I took these photos. I was really glad this top is warm! When does the Midwest get spring weather???
This is a really comfortable top. Coupled with the cozy ponte knit, this could easily be a go-to top until the weather hits something somewhat warm.
