Plaid Sorbetto

Chicago, Illinoi...






This is my contribution to 30DaysofCreativity.com ‘s Plaid Day using Colette’s free Sorbetto Tank Top pattern. I slightly modified the pattern to leave the bottom pleat loose for a more relaxed fit.

    Looks fab! I just made a Sorbetto top of my own but made a mess of the bias binding.

    first i didn’t really like the sorbetto-pattern, but after seeing so many cool versions i’m about to change my mind. and you up the ante with don’t fixing the pleat at the bottom. i think i’ll make this for my mother. and the first pic is cool! seems that you live very homey…
