Chevron Sorbetto top

I’m a little late to the Sorbetto party but I am absolutely thrilled ¬†to have¬†¬†finally arrived. I’ve wanted to sew a Sorbetto ever since Sarai posted the free pattern on Coletterie a couple of months ago and when I found Denyse Schmidt’s Greenfield Hill on sale I thought the blueberry chevron print would be perfect. It’s a voile so it’s nice and light and buttery soft.

This pattern is a piece of cake to sew and it’s just what I needed for a work top. I can see myself making loads of these now that I know how easy it is and I already have the pattern cut out (I think cutting and taping the pattern together was the longest step!)

I am so proud of myself for getting those diamonds perfectly centred down the front. The only issue with that though is that you can hardly see the pleat!

On Friday I wore it to work with cropped black trousers. I think it looks really smart with the jacket.


I also love it tucked in to a skirt.

There are loads of variations on this lovely little pattern out there in the blogosphere, but I think I like the original the best. Yay for Sorbettos!
