A Nautical Sorbetto

Well, hello there! Welcome to my little deck! It's not much, but it's certainly cozier now that we've put in some plants both on the table and in a window planter. Better than the dirt and weeds that my landlord had there when I moved in!

I'm out here enjoying my newly finished Sorbetto top made out of a nautical print poplin from JoAnn's. It was a quick and easy make, although I didn't make it up nearly as quickly as some others have. Like I've said before, I am a snail-paced seamstress!

Part of that may have been the finishing I did. I used French seams throughout and slip stitched the bias tape rather than using the machine. I prefer the look of both.

Red lipstick seemed like the right choice for these photos, but it makes me act a little crazy in front of the camera.

I thought about making a muslin and didn't bother since it was such a simple top. Now that it's finished, I wish I had. It's certainly wearable, but the fit isn't as comfortable as I would like. If I make it again, I'll definitely do some alterations on the upper front, and I'd like to try adding sleeves.

This makes for another work-appropriate summer garment: the print is certainly playful, but it's not a t-shirt. In fact, I'm wearing this top today with black pants and a red cardi.

    I love it! This is such a great take on the Sorbetto. I’m yet to make one, but now i’m thinking it’ll be nautical!

      Thanks so much! This pattern is so simple that it really is an empty palette.
