Description

This is just a quick project I turned out in an afternoon, as I am on a summer sewing high lately. I made several modifications: graded out from a size 6 to a size 14 (!) between bust and hips, scooped the neckline two inches lower, scooped the armholes a centimeter lower (they were tight), and added a few inches to the overall length. Unless you have a short torso, I would definitely recommend lengthening this so you can tuck it in. I also added piping to the armhole and neckline instead of finishing it with bias tape.

    Wow such a neat project for just one afternoon! I am so impressed. Good job grading from a 6 to a 14, that a big challenge

    This is really cute! I made my second Sorbetto top today, and It’s definitely a good idea to scoop the armholes and the neckline a bit. The piping looks great, I’m going to try it for my next Sorbetto.

    Very pretty! I think the lowered neckline is more flattering than the original pattern. Nice job!
