Plaid Sorbetto

Added Jun 28, 2011

Chicago, Illinoi...






This is my contribution to ‘s Plaid Day using Colette’s free Sorbetto Tank Top pattern. I slightly modified the pattern to leave the bottom pleat loose for a more relaxed fit.

Blogged at!

Material Notes

Shirt material is from a thrifted dress and the bias tape is made from a thrifted pillow case.




Spring, Summer
Garment Type
Beach, Casual, Classic

    Looks fab! I just made a Sorbetto top of my own but made a mess of the bias binding.

    first i didn’t really like the sorbetto-pattern, but after seeing so many cool versions i’m about to change my mind. and you up the ante with don’t fixing the pleat at the bottom. i think i’ll make this for my mother. and the first pic is cool! seems that you live very homey…

      It’s such an easy pattern to modify. You should definitely give it a try!
