A Second Sorbetto Top

I don't remember much from this past weekend besides that I was sick and I was productive with my sewing. Granted, I had to take many breaks because my strength was waning (some of these breaks involved naps and Outlander-book-reading), but I got 'er done, plus a couple of secret projects on the side. I realize I look pretty normal in the picture below, but that's not the case, haha. :)


This second Sorbetto top was much quicker than the first. I added 6 more inches to the bottom, so it was more tunic-like (however, it's not really long enough for me to wear just leggings underneath and be comfortable). I didn't really want to make a dress out of this small-print fabric, even thought I had more than enough. The fabric is actually a Lecien lawn from the Sassy Tassel, a great small fabric store that sells lots of out of print modern fabric in Lancaster, PA (I bought it while at Mid-Atlantic Mod last year). I'm glad I have more to use in the future! Plus, now I have another garment to add to my QuiltCon wardrobe.

 

Yes, I used the sparkly Netorious from Cotton and Steel again for the bias tape... sue me... I love it! I also hand-stitched those buttons on the middle pleat. There are so many different options for varying up your own garments!

This is the best picture of the fabric that I could get. It's really more purple than pink. :)

Sewing is slow-going this week overall due to this ridiculous cold. Hopefully I'll be back to normal tomorrow. It's definitely on its way out.

  2. Yuck! Not feeling good is the worse, because no matter how much you want to do something, you physically feel so depleted! Glad you were able to make progress one way or another! Hopefully you feel 100% soon! Your tops look great and they will definitely be a talking piece at QuiltCon!

  8. As a general rule I don't sew apparel. I am not terribly good at it, I don't like sewing odd shapes and curves and all the apparel I've made looks homemade, and not in a good way. But then I see posts like this where you've created the cutest top ever. I love your attention to detail with the buttons and the bias taps you chose. I've managed to quilt through the past few seasons of project runway and not think I was the next budding fashion designer but now I want to give this top a try! Thanks for sharing and feel better soon!

  9. The top is great. Great choice for the bias tape. I've made some clothing for my kids (so much more forgiving than adult clothing) but haven't dared to try anything for myself yet. Maybe this is the year. Have fun at Quilt Con!

  11. I like the Cotton and Steel binding on both of the tops- when something works, I say go for it! The added length looks really good as well.

  12. Oooh! Fun top! I was just looking at this pattern yesterday and trying to figure out what kind of bias tape I'd want to use--I really like the C + S print you used. And I just so happen to have some.... :)
