Yay! A week later than I had expected, but I can finally show you my latest creation! It is a top inspired by Sarah's "Married to the Music" top, made with the sorbetto top pattern, that I made out of an old bedsheet that had ripped the first time I had tried to use it. It was supposed to be for last week's "Peer Review" challenge on the Sew Weekly, but better late than never, right?
Pattern: Sorbetto from Colette patterns
Notions: Bias tape, made myself
Total cost: $0!!
Things done for the first time:
- First time making a top
- First time sewing darts
- First time using bias tape
- First time making my own bias tap
Things I could improve on:
- Making bias tape
- Using bias tape!!
I had to redo the bias tape because I cut it too narrow the first time and was having a lot of trouble sewing it on! The second time around it was much easier, but it is definitely not perfect.
Changes I should have made: Cut a size larger, or maybe extended the length of the straps. The darts sit a little high, and the armholes are still a little tight.
