7 Days of Sorbetto


Have you guys seen what Mena at The Sew Weekly is doing this week? She’s doing a little feature called “7 days of Sorbetto” in which she makes a new Sorbetto every day for the week. She’s even drafted her own sleeve pattern for download! The version above is called The Summer Sorbetto.

Mena is perhaps my favorite sewing blogger at the moment, so I am thrilled that she decided to do this!

Thanks so much for sharing! Love it with and without the sleeves!

Yeah, I love how the sleeves give it a pretty different look.

[…] all in all, i would definitely call this a success, at least enough of one that i’m excited to sew more for myself.  in fact, i’ve already finished another project, but haven’t had time to photograph it yet.  i like, but don’t love the top (mostly the length), but i did wear it out to dinner as a symbolic gesture that something i made is wearable (these photos were taken en route).  i’d definitely recommend the pattern, as it’s so basic and so versatile (check out 7 sorbettos in 7 days here).
