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

This is lovely! :) xxx
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.
I had trouble with the bias binding too! It’s so tricky! I’ll probably make another sorbetto soon – will hopefully be easier second time round!
Thats so pretty!
This is awesome:) It looks great and the buttons are a lovely finishing detail.
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! :)
You should definitely try it, it’s the easiest sewing project I’ve tried so far :)
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 :)
Thanks! A rich person with a yacht is proving hard to find…
It’s really pretty and the buttons are adorable :)
I have yet to have a go at the Sorbetto top. Seems like it’s must-sew for all home seamstresses :)
You should try it! It’s quite addictive though – I’m on my third sorbetto already :)
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!
Oh My! This is SO sweet :)
