Here's yet another Sorbetto.  This time in a cotton ditsy floral with 3% stretch and store-bought bias tape:

Colette Patterns Sorbetto

I'm nuts about this fabric.  It reminds me of Liberty prints, and is as close as I'm likely to get to any for a while.  I left the bottom two thirds of the pleat open to make the top more swingy.  

Here's a closer look at the print:

The color of the bias tape is called Mediterranean!  I can't wait to wear this with some khaki green pants and teal sandals!

I've really been on a Sorbetto binge, but this is just such a great top!  So easy to make, and a great layering piece.  As I'm making each one, I'm thinking of which of my hand-knit sweaters to wear over them!


  1. You are a woman obsessed! - but in my books this is a good obsession and this latest Sorbetto is my favourite yet.

  2. Thanks, Andrea! Are you going to make one?

  3. I think I'll eventually make one. I'm trying to get through my summer sewing list first ... but perhaps I can get a bit sidetracked!

  4. It wouldn't be a very big sidetrack - it only takes a few hours start to finish!
