What I made in 2012 – Colette Sorbetto Top

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!

  1. It looks very nice, good job. I quite often am able to make things using less fabric than called for – but I still buy the specified amount just in case I mess up! :-)
