I’m a little late posting this week – so many exciting things going on in sewing land! I’ve been hanging out at Stitch Cleveland more often now and on Tuesday they were interviewed by Fox 8 local cleveland news. The cameraman took a few shots of those of us who were there sewing so I may or may not be on TV sometime in February (depending on how much they edit).
Anyways, here is the next installment of my 2012 project: It’s the infamous Colette Sorbetto top. So many reasons to love this pattern – It’s free, it’s quick, it’s easy and it uses minimal fabric.
The fabric was a scrap (poly) piece my mother had left over from many years ago, I wouldn’t be surprised if this fabric is older than I am. I think I used less fabric than the recommended amount, that’s how great this pattern is.
All the inside seams were sewn as french seams, and I made the bias binding out of some leftover purple poly scraps – a real pain because the bias strips were slipping all over the place.
This top’s gotten a decent amount of wear – it’s great with cardigans and it’s a perfect beginners project. I’m planning on making a few more for 2013.
Till next time,
