Sorbetto Top 2 and 3

I completed top 2 yesterday, late night.  This morning I cut out top 3 using fabric and lining from my stash.

Top 2 was a multi color striped fabric acquired from Jo Ann fabrics about a month or so ago.  It is a polyester crinkled fabric with very sheer stripes between colors with metallic thread running through it.  The lining I used was lining acquired from Fabric Mart and was included in a bundle package over a year or so ago.  I call it an oyster color as it matched the “oyster” color serger thread from Maxi Lock.

Here is the completed top 2Sorbetto Top 2 Complete 7242011

After attaching the lining and sewing side seams, I decided to edgestitch the neckline to keep the pleated area from rolling out.

I used the rolled hem setting on my serger to hem the top.

Top 3 is still a work in progress.  The fabric used was a yellow cotton eyelet from  Acquired over two years or more ago.  I decided I wanted to use a contrasting color for the lining and chose a warm green lining fabric also from my stash.

The eyelet fabric has scalloped edges, so I wanted to use that edge at the hem line.

Top 3 has lining attached at the neckline and I had to stop there because DH says its dinner time!


  1. Great wardrobe enhancers. Love the scalloped edge hem.

  2. That top turned out great. I have a feeling it was a tricky fabric to work with.

  3. Wow! You are working that pattern - two more winners!

  4. Great fabrics on these tops! The scalloped hem detail is perfect.

  5. Very nice! You choose the coolest fabrics, literally and figuratively. :)

  6. Wow, I love that yellow eyelet with the scalloped border, beautiful! Cant' wait to see how that turns out.

  7. You are really getting a lot of use out of the free Sorbetto pattern. It is amazing how one pattern can look so different depending on the fabric. All your versions are beautiful and perfect for the hot weather. I have the purple/grey colorway of the crinkled fabric and also considered using the wrong side which is less shiny than the right side. Your lovely blouse convinced me that is the way to use the fabric.
