After seeing so many versions of the Colette Sorbetto top online I was eager to try it myself. A free pattern that only needs a metre of fabric what’s not to like?
It was pretty simple to put together but I am hopeless at making bias tape. On both tops it was third time lucky. I just couldn’t seem to follow the instructions.
The first one I made in a flowery blue print was way shorter than I’d normally wear so when I started on the second top I added 2 inches to the bottom.
The red fabric is lovely and light but so slippery. I’ve never sewn with anything except cotton so cutting out was a bit tricky!
I did some searching online and found that paper between the fabric could stop it slithering about and it worked a treat.
