A Sorbetto Weekend
One of the writers on the Sew Weekly did 7 Days of Sorbetto and that inspired me to go back to the Collette Pattern site and download the top. It's so easy! The first one I used a lightweight print just picked up this year from the red tag section at Joann's. Last year I made a skirt from this same fabric that was not in the clearance section. Anyway, this is so easy because it has only the front and back pattern pieces. You see a sleeve pattern in my picture because some kind person whom I can't think of right now, drafted a sleeve pattern that I will try in my next couple of Sorbettos. There are no facings for the neck and sleeve openings. You can use your own bias tape made from the fabric scraps which I did in both of these tops. Or purchase a matching or contrasting bias tape. You can make several of these in a day if you want to just sew up a few.
I asked my daughter to take a picture of my top and she did just that.
