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.
Oh, I love your Sorbetto belted – gives it a whole different look. It is lovely to see you blogging again. I was happy to see your link lit up in my reader today. 🙂
LOVE your Sorbetto! Such a lovely summery colour too!
Love the inverted pleat Sorbetto! Welcome back!!!
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….
[…] a camisole and some pants. I used the same cream white silk/lycra blend that I used to line the Lemon Sorbetto with, and some pretty lace I bought when I was visiting my parents in my hometown. The camisole is […]
