Sewing Projects.....Sorbetto

This versatile pattern from Colette Patterns  is wonderful!  Here I made the Sorbetto top (which is a free download able pattern) in sheer gold fabric.  I inverted the front pleat to make nice and loose, giving the option to wear floaty or nipped in at the waist with a vintage belt.

Admittedly the fabric was a  nightmare to work with, it frayed madly and due to the nature of the finish I was unable to press, but I love it!  I wish I had bought enough fabric to make one for me -  as this one was for my best friend Josey Jo - I thought it would look amazing with battered denim.
