I finally got to making myself a Sorbetto top! I used a striped cotton that was left over from another project. I had to grade the pattern out a few sizes from the waist down for it to fit (I’m such a pear). That’s the only change I made. It was so easy to make. The only part I had some trouble with was the bias binding. My fabric is so lightewight that it was almost impossible to sew on, but somehow I managed to get it to look ok in the end. I love this top! Also blogged here
