Corded Pintuck Sorbetto

Added Jul 8, 2011

by AGoodWardrobe

Fairfax, Califor...






Another Sorbetto! This time I used corded pintucks in lieu of the center-front pleat.
I used a sheer cream polka dot and layered a navy blue underneath for some coverage. There are french seams throughout, a baby hem, and one-thread darts. More here

Material Notes

Roughly 2 yards of cotton voile, pearl cotton size 5, (3,0/75) twin needle, 3 yards of 1/2" bias tape.

    Your two Sorbettos are my favourites out of all the ones I have seen! Your takes on this pattern are very original and the results are beautiful.

      I feel quite silly making so many but it’s been really fun. Thanks for your comment – I’ve been enjoying looking through your projects. They are so inspiring (and original as well)!
