The result is always good when He Who Cooks uses leftovers.
Leftover prawns? Lovely in a sandwich the next day!
So, how about a Sorbetto or two from leftover fabric?
It’s hard not to look smug when you use remnants and a free pattern…!
I liked it so much I cut out and sewed another Sorbetto the same day.
Pattern: Collette Patterns Sorbetto Top. You can download your copy for free here.
Sizing: 0-18, I made a 12 (40 inch bust)
I made self fabric bias tapes, and due to my fabrics being remnants, there’s quite a few joins in the strips.
Limited fabric is also the reason the bias tape for the abstract floral is from the lighter part of the pattern… and why the centre front pleat doesn’t feature.
The Sorbetto makes a great shell under a business suit or a cardigan. Here’s how I have worn them both for work this week.
This a great pattern, Doobee has made some fabulous variations on this great basic, and there are squillions of versions on Pattern Review too.
Like Vogue 1250, I’m just a little bit slower than everyone else…
