Coletto Sorbetto Top

Remember my trip to the Treasure Island Flea Market? Well while I was there, I picked up a little over a yard of vintage fabric.  This was my first time purchasing vintage fabric and I was looking forward to working with it.  Colette Patterns released a free pattern for the Sorbetto blouse.  Only two pattern pieces and about a yard of fabric needed - perfect!

Assembling the printed pattern

After I washed and ironed out my fabric I noticed a couple of spots with some age and wear.  I kept inventory of those spots when it came time to cut out my pattern. Alas, as I was stitching the front and back together, I found one more small hole that I hadn't noticed.  This required me to take in one of the sides about an inch, so I had to adjust the corresponding side to make sure the center pleat was still lined up.  In the end, everything worked out fine! If I made it again, I'd make it a little longer and maybe add a collar like some other bloggers have done.

Alas, it was not a good hair day. You are left with just the blouse.

Overall, it took me about an hour to whip this top up.  It was such a quick and easy sew!
