Weekender Summer in the City Top

I have serious sewing mojo going on right now. Here is my latest shirt - the Hot Patterns Weekender Summer in the City top. It is gathered at the front and back yokes. The fabric is a rayon challis from Fabric Mart and had the perfect drape for this. I plan to make two more - one another blouse with ruched sleeves, and the other a shirt dress that I will wear belted. The shirt was very easy to fit. I did the usual adjustments for sloping shoulders and a high rounded back. Then took it in at the sides 1 inch and shortened it by
2 1/2 inches. I have only seen this made up once by someone else, but I recommend the pattern.


  1. Great looking top. I love the fabric.

  2. This pattern looks so cool and breezy. Isn't it fun when the sewing mojo is flowing!

  3. Pretty blouse. I love rayon challis. It's cool and comfortable, and doesn't wrinkle badly. Also, I love Hot Patterns!
