Frankie in the City Goes PAO


~ just like the statue of liberty ~

You can put me in the bushes, but I'm a city girl through and through.



~ yeah, bay-bee ~

So what's with the Frankie part, you ask.  It's the name of the Tina Givens pattern I used (with some liberties) for the crop top and pants.






The lovely sketch of the NYC skyline with selected blotches of ballet pink fabric is from my fav online shop, here.

For an extra sweet treat...


~ looking good ~

These lovely well-dressed ladies arrived at the cafe while I was there.   I was so impressed that I asked if I could take a picture.  That's when they said, "Oh, we're not together."  Okay, can I still take a picture?  You all look so beautiful in your summer frocks.  "Yes!"  And done.


So shall we go on over to Patti and the Visibles at Not Dead Yet Style?  How about Catherine's I Will Wear What I Like and Cherie's Shoe and Tell?  Hope to see you all there.

  4. Ooooooo, Pao, I adore that outfit! I would love to have something like that to wear all summer (although I would want it in the reverse print - black background with white print and trim). Do the pants have a waistband or elastic?

    1. I made the pants with a drawstring waistband. That's my preferred method so I can wear them slung low on the hips or high above my waist. I make the tie of the drawstring open on the inside rather than the outside so it doesn't show, if you get my drift.

      I made a winter Frankie too, out of velvet with linen trim. The post is called Copper and Wine from February 2016. https://projectminima.blogspot.com/2016/02/copper-and-wine.html

    1. The adaptations are for my own good and really can't be helped. Plus they are Tina Givens patterns and can't be avoided.

  6. Just the perfect outfit for summer in the city! (The summer that we aren't experiencing much right now.) And I've seen a lot more girls in dresses lately too. Very cute.

  9. I love the moon brooch filling out the skyline, and the way you always always finish telling the story with your feet.
    Another hit out of the park! Xo Jazzy Jack
