    I think your Sorbetto is beautiful. The fabric is so lovely and suits you so well. I printed off the Sorbetto pattern and for some reason cannot get my computer and printer to gel, hence my 4inch sq measures 3 3/4 inches. Anyway, I made a few adjustments and cut out the pattern onto a remnant of fabric left over from another project and whipped up the top. Like you, the darts were in a weird place on my body, so more adjustments; lifting the shoulder seams and all was looking fairly good except that the dart finishes over the top of my bust line. Another adjustment and now I have a very nice little top which I think is going to be perfect for hot humid days in Brisbane. Thank-you for posting your Sorbetto, because it really inspired me to make mine. Will post it once a photo is taken.

      Thank you! Regarding the printer, I had trouble the first time around as well, but eventually figured out that my print manager was resizing the image. (I assume because it has wide margins? But I’m only guessing?) If you’re able to locate the menu in your print manager that controls this and select that no changes to the sizing be made, you might be able to fix the problem next time you try printing it!

      Looking forward to seeing yours :)

      Thanks for your advice on the printer. I will try it and hopefully it works as I would like to download other patterns.
