Well this is my first Sorbetto top from Colette patterns. I’ve used a really old fabric I found in my stash at home. I think the rest was a dress when I left school (help, that’s over 20 years ago)!
There wasn’t enough to cut out the full width front, so I decided to make the front pleat smaller. I didn’t lengthen the pattern like some, the idea with this one was really to see how the pattern came out and go from there.
It’s getting it’s first outing for SSS’11, since I’ve decided it doesn’t look too bad and might be fun to wear!! So watch this space!
Thanks Colette Patterns!
In the meantime, the next Sorbetto has already been cut out and is on it’s way! The fabric I’ve used for the next has a silver thread running through it (on white), I’d love to find a silvery grey fabric to make the bias strips. Any suggestions??
