This is made from a super soft cream fabric that I blogged about here - I hadn't taken any proper photos though, so here they are:
#6 - Candy Stripes Sorbetto
This fabric is cotton with a little lycra. It also has a finish like seersucker. Very nice! Due to the stretch I thought that I might have a problem with the bias binding, so I chose a co-ordinating fat quarter with I think is rather cute!
I have this fabric since 2000. I distinctly remember buying from a bolt end fabric shop in Walsall (UK). It is 100% cotton and is slightly thicker than shirting as it is actually sheeting. I bought some to make a duvet cover and matching pillow case - that never happened, but it keep smiling at me from my stash, beckoning me to stitch it up into some loveliness. So I did. I thought that the fabric would be too thick for the bias binding, but I pressed the heck out if it and it looks just great!
So there you go - 7 Sorbetto's for the One Pattern Many Looks contest.
And here is my final compilation photo courtesy of Picasa Collage:
I love all the different fabrics and these tops will be fabulous for the summer. I think my favorite is the blue polka-dot version with the cute buttons, but as with your own children and dogs - I love them all!!!! I will certainly make some more - some plain colored ones will go down a treat. I will also use the pattern, along with my straight skirt (that featured heavily in all these photos!), morphed together to to make a dress for the RTW Designer Knockoff contest that I blogged about. My PatternReview review is here.
Phew, well now that these are completed, I am going to finish off my tartan skirt, and then I think I need to make a couple of cardigans to work into my 2013 SWAP! No rest for the wicked!
