The Lemon Sorbetto.

First of all,  thank you everyone for your kind words on my last post.  Maybe a cliché,  but I now feel,  much more than before,   a compassion for,  and a relation to the people in our world who are suffering and experiencing mindless violence every day of their lives.  My heart goes out to all of you.

With that said,  I will now continue to post on a more regular basis than I have been the previous months.  Summertime for me involves such a different way of living than the rest of the year,  so I apologize that my blogging has been sparse.

I have,  however,  been sewing.  And thinking about sewing.  I have made some stuff during the summer,  a skirt,  some cropped pants,  a couple of Sorbetto´s (who haven´t?) and some knit pieces.  Eventually,  I will show you all of this.  But for now you have to settle for pictures of one of my Sorbetto´s.

The Lemon Sorbetto

I guess I´ll have to call this Lemon Sorbetto,  because this reminds me of all the tasty lemon sorbet I have been eating this summer.  Mmmm…  For my first version of Sorbetto,  I didn´t infact make a FBA,  I just went up a size,  but for my second version I DID make a FBA,  but I forgot to go down a size again,  so it is a bit too big.

Lesson learned:  Always pick pattern size based on your UPPER bust measurement,  Sølvi!  And then go a head with the FBA.

Photo trying to illustrate that it is a bit big.  But I don´t mind.  I like it like that! 🙂

I made it from a lace fabric and a silk/lycra fabric,  underlined and stitched together.  Both from my stash (yay!).  I used french seams in the sides and at the shoulder seams,  and then I hemmed by using the rolled seam on my overlocker.

OK,  that´s it for me today,  hope you all are enjoying August so far! 🙂

    So nice to see you blogging again! I like the way you’ve belted your Sorbetto. It gives the garment a really cute shape.

    Hello again! What a pretty Sorbetto – clever use of fabrics – I love the lace. I agree, belting it gives it a whole new cuteness. Great to see you blogging again …

    It looks so pretty styled with the belt and jeans! 🙂 Also: great lipstick! (And yum, lemon sorbet!)

    Thank you all for the lovely comments!
    @Alessa: it´s Guerlain KissKiss laque in color 720. In case you wondered ;-). I got it as a gift, and unfortunately, Guerlain uses animal testing, so I need to find another, cruelty-free lipstick when this is finished….
