Completed Project: No Money Down Sorbetto Top

Here's my completed blouse.  As planned, this blouse cost $0 to produce because I harvested the fabric from an old item that no longer fit me, made my own self fabric bias binding, and used thread I had on hand.  This top was very easy to make and I will definitely be making several of these, with various embellishments and alterations, to enhance my spring and summer wardrobe. Thanks again for looking at what I sew.

p.s.  Would you prefer to see me wear the things I make (when they're for me)?

  1. Hi Dee! Your sorbetto is lovely. I was so excited to sew this free pattern when it came out - but I think my printer was a bit off, making all the lines of the pattern a little off...and thus my finished project was! Seeing yours makes me want to give it another shot, though. ;)

  2. How pretty! Yes,I would like to see items on you.It's nice to see you modeling what you made.Thanks! Darlene
