You may have seen the awesomeness that is the new Pattern Anthology collection-4 knit top patterns for WOMEN!

And they are all so cute and stylish.

I had a tough time deciding which one to make, honestly!


I might have to shamelessly copy Stef’s Parisian top at a later date…I heart it SO much.

I decided on the City Girl top (designed by Kate), and I adore how it turned out.

It’s got a fun cowl, and gathered front that is just enough detail to make this the perfect-throw-it-on-with-some-earrings-and-call-it-an-outfit kind of top.

I made a medium and the fit was great.

Didn’t hem the sleeves or bottom since the luscious ponte de roma knit from Girl Charlee was fabulous (plus, I was a leeetle lazy that day). Jeans are from Old Navy.
