Starlight Sorbetto

Hi All,

I have completed a new Sobetto top, I really like this one because of the fabric. I also lengthened it by 2″, I was going to sort out the arm holes too but I was too bothered by them.

Plenty of photos, and a ‘sort of ‘ tutorial.

I've wanted to do something with these laces for a long time now.

I’ve wanted to do something with these laces for a long time now.

I used laces to make the box pleat stand out more and they matched the fabric perfectly.


I was going to attach it in the centre but that didn’t make much sense.



I think this looks cute! This is just placement before I cut and sew them on.


As the ends frayed, I decided to over stitch the ends so that they looked a bit neater.


Attaching laces from the back.

When I was attaching the laces, I was careful not to go straight through to the other side.


I am quite proud of this and thats just because of the fabric alone. This is my forth Sorbetto now but I want to do more! I need to move on to other blouses.


A close up on the details.

I’m going to make a habit of buying print fabric as I find it more interesting.

Happy Sewing
