I've been wanting to do a post of my Sorbetto's and am finally getting to it :)
Very unlikely but if you haven't seen this free pattern before, it is a wonderful, easy pattern that you can get from the Colette Patterns' Coletterie blog.
As I mentioned the other day, I wanted to get a couple more Sorbettos sewn up so I revisited the pattern; but wanted to show you my Sorbetto's - I very very rarely make a pattern more than once but this is such an easy, wearable shirt that I have made a version of it 6 times!!
|Very first Sorbetto|
|Second Sorbetto - reclaimed fabric from an apron style '70's dress - a bit thin :)|
When B saw the leftover fabric laying around she immediately requested something
made for her - she wasn't even 2 yet!!
|Had to make another since Sew Weekly came out with a sleeve pattern for the Sorbetto. |
I used what I believe to be vintage lace hem facing for the detailing.
I also have a satin version to match the shorts but it is in the wash - I'll have to add it later :)
Last summer I used a couple different tutorials on the Coletterie blog to make a dress. I made it without the front pleat and did the scalloped hem for fun. To get the length I just drew a line along the side seam to the appropriate length, making sure to keep the same angle of the side seam going out (not a pencil skirt).
|Got the belt at the thrift store - am thinking I need to salvage|
the buckle but am liking the gold belt with this dress.
I love this dress now that I have lost some weight (since sewing it last August) & am thinking it will become a summer wardrobe staple.
Well, I hope I might inspire someone to try this pattern - this is the perfect beginner pattern!!!
Don't be surprised to see more Sorbetto's pop up during the summer.
Have a good night!
Blessed Be, Alyssa
