When I buy fabric, I often get a little more than I need. Either that or I buy an amount that I think I will get a skirt and top, or trousers and jacket etc., etc., and it usually means that I have a half or full metre left over that ends up in a pile of 'not sure what to do with this but I don't want to throw away' fabric - do you have one?! Well, after making these shirts, I found myself in the same predicament.
But this time . . . it actually worked and I had enough to make some more Sorbettos. Yay!!
What do you think of the daisies at the bottom that form the hem? They are actually one of the built in stitches on my Pfaff - it does not have very many, but it certainly makes up for it with this one, Although you can't quite see it in these photos, the centres of the daisies actually form a small hole, so they look like eyelets. Love them!
Here are a couple of photos of the chartreuse top.
I also have a charcoal grey shirt and Sorbetto cut out and had hoped to have them finished before my Australia trip . . . . unfortunately that was not the case - but it does mean that I will have some sewing ready for me when I return!!
