Colette Patterns- Sewing the Sorbetto Top

This top was made with Anna Marie Horner's fabric in linen, using the free pattern download offered by Sarai of Colette patterns- The Sorbetto Top.  I made this top in less than 90 minutes, and that's including my fretting over the box pleat. (Totally easy, I was over thinking it, as usual.)  

I cut the size 6 as instructed according to measurements, but I think next time I will cut the 4 as it's a boxier top than what I normally wear. In the summer this will be super cute with rolled up boyfriend jeans, don't ya think?! :)

I didn't make any alterations from the pattern ('cause I don't know how to do that anyways).

A big shout out to my gal over at Gingermakes for recommending this top to me. She is a sewing jedi master and I look up to her for inspiration and "know-how".

My brain is swirling this week with a zillion projects on the board, several cut out, and more almost finished. However I'm still battling this weird sort-of-sick feeling that prevents me from drinking my beloved coffee, so my posts may be short this week. Such is life.

Peace out


  1. Awww, you're too sweet! This turned out ADORABLE! I love love love the print! It will be perfect for summer weather! :)

    Hope you feel better soon (and get back to your usual coffee consumption)!

  2. Love your Sorbetto top - that fabric is just fab! I made a couple of them last summer and agree, they're so simple to do. So much so that I've got another one all cut out - just need some time to get it sewn.

  3. so much jedi on the brain lately!!!

    this print layering is jedi master. JEDI MASTER DOWN.


I appreciate every comment, thanks so much for taking the time. It means A LOT to me. :)
