A couple of months ago, I was wowed by lovely Marie's version of the Sorbetto top, which is a free download from Colette patterns. She has since made two more tops using this pattern - as far as I am aware - and I can completely understand the addiction!
I finally finished my top this afternoon, after I managed to buy some bias binding. I had never added bias binding to anything before, and was really worried that I would mess it up, but it was fine! Lots of pinning, sewing, repinning, more sewing....
So here is the finished garment :)
I used some of the recycled sheet that I previously used to experiment with making this dress. All in all, I am pretty pleased with the result - it is a little bit big though. I took the sides in a couple of centimeters when I started the top a few weeks ago, but really should have double checked before I sewed on the bias binding. Never mind, you've always got to expect some mistakes when you first try out a pattern haven't you?!
I have some plain navy blue cotton and beige bias binding a the ready so I can try out a second version soon. I have to say, for those of you who are new to sewing, this is a great pattern to try out!
