Sailor Sorbetto

A while ago I was lucky enough to win some amazing nautical-print fabric from Vicki Kate Makes (thanks Vicki). I originally had a vintage pattern in mind for it, but just couldn’t resist the simplicity of the Sorbetto pattern (I have a feeling this won’t be the last Sorbetto I make!).

I love how unashamedly bright and nautical this print is – this top is made for summer holidays on the coast. Now all I need is a rich friend with a yacht…anyone?

Pattern: Sorbetto from Colette Patterns
Fabric: Michael Miller ‘Stay the Course’ c/o Vicki Kate Makes
Sunglasses: Accessorize
Watch: Casio
Bag: Longchamp

I also pilfered some super-cute anchor buttons from my mum’s button collection to add to the pleat – cheers mum!

  1. I don´t have a ayate! But I do like your sorbetto and its details… I made one for my very first attempt on sewing and the bias finishes were a real mess :-) Now that I have MUCH MORE practice (ha ha) it´s time I try it again. The buttons matching the print are awsome.

  2. I love this! It’s so cute and the fabric/buttons are perfect :) I’ve got the sorbetto top pattern sitting on my table at home and am yet to try it because I’ve been too afraid of the bias binding! You’ve inspired me though – I think I’ll make one this weekend! :)

  3. This is such a gorgeous top – great for the coast – not sure I know anyone rich with a yacht though, so I can’t help you there :)

  4. This is beautiful! I love how you’ve made such a simple pattern into something full of detail and personality! And those buttons are to die for!
