This was my first Collette Patterns Sorbetto Top and it was really so easy to make. I didn’t really have to tweak it that much to have it fit me but I just couldn’t help myself from making some changes to make it more special and unique. I removed the center pleat, lengthened the blouse, added a curved hem, and to make the neckline more interesting, I added a self drafted baby collar.
The fabric is dotted cotton voile I have had in my stash for almost 3 years!! For the collar, I used silk chiffon. I think the hardest part to do was ironing the collar flat. :P
Leopard and snakeskin are the new neutrals.
