This easy-to-make-and-wear top is based on Colette’s Sorbetto. I drafted the pattern from scratch, lowered the neckline, cut in at the arm hole and adopted a slightly looser fit of the top.

Material Notes

French Dior. I have no idea what type of fabric this is. Neither can the fabric seller pinpoint what is. It feels like matt satin. If anyone knows what french dior is, let me know!

      Thanks Stephanie! The back is just a normal slightly lower back, quite basic :)

    I was looking at your blog, and was wondering how did you do the arm and neck holes. Did you roll over the fabric or add matching binding. Hard to see in pics. I am practicing with making my own fench binding as shown in bekabug8 turorial emailed to me today. Thank you Teresa I am getting lots of inspiration from you and your clothing.

      Hi Teresa,

      Thanks you for your compliments! There are generally two ways to finish the neck holes. You can either use an interfacing or bias tape to wrap the exposed seams. For the arm holes, you use a bias tape as well. You can make your own using the same piece of fabric as your garment with a bias tape maker or buy the ready made ones. The black strip which you see in the top left picture is the contrasting bias tape, not very clear though.

      Bekabug8’s french binding works as well. Hope it helps! Happy sewing :)
