It's nearly time for Me Made May guys!
Are you ready? Do you have enough to wear?? Being a newbie to this whole sewing your own clothes malarky, I've taken it easy and I have comitted myself to wearing me made 3 days a week so I think I can manage that but just to make sure I'm just adding a few bits to my wardrobe before next Wednesday (no panic stitching here...no no)
So I've got a couple of Colette Peony's under my belt, and after trawling some lovely sewing blogs I thought I'd have a go at the Colette Sorbetto. With it being a free download it would be rude not to!
Pattern printed and all stuck together...
And fabric chosen, this was in my free stash from work, such lovely colours and a nice light cotton perfect for summer (whenever that may be??).....
This is such an easy little pattern and it all came together within a couple of hours.
I love the front pleat detail.
I also used some fabric left over form my last Peony for another one for my mum :)
It's in the post mum!
I think you could add some little alterations to make a few different versions of this pretty top. In fact whilst perusing the Colette Pattern website I noticed the other free download for extra's to add to the Laurel...these could definitley be adapted for the Sorbetto.............more for the MMMay13 to do list!
