|Colette Patterns Sorbetto Top|
This is my "muslin" - constructed to check fit. Who says a muslin can't be cute? This fabric cost less per yard than real muslin!
I cut out the pattern for size 2, and the only adjustment I did was to cut the length of a size 4. Fit is perfect. Some people had issues with the armholes gaping or the top being too short, but it's just right on me. The only other change I made was to invert the pleat down the front and only sew it down about 1/3 of the way, a la Casey.
This was the first time I made my own bias tape, and I'm pretty darned proud of myself:
Now I've got at least one more to do!
