I actually sewed double three times in April (and finished on May 1st). I made Sis Boom Ethan button down shirts for my boys here and here. Then, I sewed a couple of quick t-shirts. I have spent the last few days trying to figure out which ones to write about. I finally decided that I would share my two Sorbettos.
I have watched numerous Sorbettos being made. I downloaded the free pattern ages ago. I even had it printed, but it sat waiting with other patterns to be taped together.
It was while planning for Me-Made-May that I realized I needed some summer tops. While shopping for fabric, I found a fun quilting cotton and a more delicate looking, pretty embroiderer crinkle cotton.
I made the first Sorbetto out of a super discounted quilting cotton for less than $3. It was so quick to put together. The longest part was making the bias tape out of the same fabric. But it really took very little time. Once I tried it on, I immediately started on the second.
However, for the second I used bias tape that I inherited that has bee in my stash for more that ten years. I photographed and posted pictures from the packaging in the post about the Sorbettos.
I am in love with this pattern and am imagining a dozen variations!
