Satin Sorbetto

Added Jan 26, 2012

Dublin, Ireland






Used the free Sorbetto pattern and leftover scraps of satin I’d used to line some other projects.

I cut separate facings for the armholes and neckline, and appliqued lace trim to the pleat. Read all about it here.

Material Notes

About 1m of satin, narrow scraps really so not sure of yardage.

1m of lace trim, sewn on by hand.

1m of bias binding for hem.

      Thank you :) The trim was originally to cover up the fact that I had to cut the pleat separately… but it worked out nicely :)

    I really like your new version of the Sorbetto and how you have inverted the pleat and left it open. I love that you have made a lovely top with some scrap fabric and used your creative skills to make it look so good. I have made several and every piece of left over fabric, I quickly pull out the Sorbetto pattern and see if I can’t make another. I think I will now have to try the inverted pleat version!!

      Thanks! Yes, it’s a great stashbuster and like you, I’ll definitely be coming back to it (again and again…) :)
