Today for the Me-Made-May challenge, I wore my Sorbetto top with a suit. With this, I’ve technically met my challenge for the week (I said I would wear 2 items each work week). But I will probably wear something me made again this week anyway.
Forgive the tired look in the photo, I didn’t have a chance to get a picture until after a very long day at work. 😦
I really like my red Sorbetto. It’s one of the first garments I made. And I wear it fairly regularly. It’s made out of a really soft cotton lawn, with a dainty little cream flower print. I made my own bias tape, out of the same fabric. The bias tape wasn’t difficult to make, but it did take a long time. Probably because I don’t have a bias tape maker. Instead I used a pin and my ironing board, a method I read about here.
My favorite thing about this top is the center pleat:
In fact, I like this top so much, I am planning to make another out of this printed cotton swiss dot fabric:
Hopefully I will get it finished in time to wear before the end of the month!
