Portland, Maine,...






I made this shirt as soon as I found the pattern. I know that it is an incredibly popular pattern because my blog keeps getting hits from people searching for versions of it. I am really happy for Collette Patterns getting so much attention for their business. They make really interesting patterns and they are a local company for me.
I made mine out of some fabric that I had lying around.It does have some silver sparkly thread that goes through it that I fell for. It wasn’t very much and what I loved about this pattern is that it is basically just two pieces. Having a small amount of fabric is great for this.
I have noticed that others have had some fit issues with theirs. I do some automatic adjustments for my shoulders and this may have helped my fit. Basically, if the shoulder line is different even with a small amount, the back will not fit properly. I changed the shape using a silhouette of my shoulders and then added an angled seam to make up for my forward sloping shoulders. The length seems just right on me, but if I were to add a belt to it, I would add a few inches to the hem.
It was my first time using bias tape and I talk about this on my blog post.

    I love the fabric and the little bow you have made in the middle, it really gives it another kind of look! Sorbetto is really a very popular and great pattern! You should make more too!!!!

      thanks! i am glad to hear that you retried it and that it worked. it is such an easy pattern and i will be making more. now i learned how to use french seams and this will be great with a thinner fabric. really excited about this. i look forward to seeing more of your versions also.
