Colette Sorbetto top in the same dotty fabric from which I made my Coffee Date dress a few years ago. I love this fabric to pieces. The top is a bit tentish, perhaps this style is not the best for someone with a large bust but it’s comfortable enough and very easy t…

I was happy with the fit of B so I thought I wouldn’t have to alter the pattern of D much. Boy, was I wrong.
It was as if I was sewing a whole different pattern. I had to alte…
