Attempting to make woven tops fit my chest is no small feat. Is it any wonder then that I adjusted one to fit and have never even tried another? Oh, adjusted Sorbetto, how I love you, even though you look like a mutant compared to the original version (note for curvy ladies: it's a good pattern to practice FBA-ing!).
So when I snagged some gorgeous Liberty tana lawn from EmmaOneSock earlier this year, what could it be but yet another Sorbetto?
Check out the design below: have you ever seen anything so summery? Yachts! Dinghies! Huts! Rowboats! Buckets and spades!
I used Grainline's fab "how to get a flat bias neckline" tutorial. Even though I've done bias edging a thousand times, her little tips made a big difference. My favourite one is to understitch the bias first before doing the final stitching... genius! I also do the version where you fold all the bias to the inside rather than having it show on the outside - it's much easier to get a neat finish and I think it looks more RTW.
A simple top, and it's getting tons of use! In the meantime, do you want to see more photos of the wonderland that is Nantucket? I know you do.
