This is my version of the Sorbetto top that has been so popular on Burda Style. Like some of you, I had to make several alterations to the darts and their placement on my bustline. Even with this top they are not where they should be so I have diverted attention away from them by embellishing the neckline with a bit of the left over fabric and some sweet little square Mother of Pearl buttons.. This top was literally made with a bag of leftovers from another project made several years ago. I am loathe to throw away any scraps! I also had to lift the shoulder seams by 1.5cm, hence I lost my hem. I am quite long in the body so I couldn’t turn up the hem, so I managed to make a bit more bias and added that to the hem line and slightly ease in the top to give it a different look. I am really pleased with this top and it will become another favourite in my summer wardrobe. I will definitely be making more Sorbettos, but with my alterations.
Cotton from Lisa’s Fabrics, Southport, Gold Coast and Mother of Pearl buttons bought online from the Country Bumpkin in Adelaide.
