Sewing: Vintage Strawberry Sorbetto

Standard

I’ve been very busy with the sewing machine lately. Here’s the most recent thing to get finished:

Another item for my fall wardrobe. I used Colette Patterns‘ free Sorbetto tank to make a shell I could layer all fall and then again in spring. I cut the pattern in a size 12, based on my high bust measurement and then FBA’d it to death (2.5 inches to each side). I used Queen of the Flies’ post to help me with my pattern adjustments.

The fabric is a vintage 1950’s cotton that I purchased from Selvedge Shop and the trim is purchased single fold bias tape in dark brown. I’m so happy with how it turned out! Off my body it kind of has odd shaping, but on me it is PERFECT!

It was a little chilly out, so this is as much as I’m going to expose to show the detail on the tank. It’s hard to see, but I didn’t hem the bottom as instructed as I wanted it a little longer, so I just used the bias tape to finish the bottom like the neckline and armholes.
