Two Sorbettos



Remember my unfinished sorbetto? I finally got it done last weekend, after making another sorbetto with leftover fabric from my second version of Simplicity A1523. I paired it with a high waisted skirt and it didn't look bad at all. This is such a great pattern for a tank top. It makes for a really quick sew. I'm definitely going to make more versions; you can never have too many tank tops in Texas.

I went to JoAnn's today and found out they've been having an amazing week-long sale on McCalls patterns - 99c each! I bought 10 of them; I'm so glad I didn't miss out.

I hope you all are enjoying the last few weeks of summer. Happy sewing!

Simplicity A1523 Top #2


I've worn my first Simplicity A1523 top so many times I decided to go ahead and make another one. It is such a simple pattern that makes for a really quick sew. I made this one last weekend; I'm probably going to make a couple more because I can wear them to work with just about anything. 
I skipped the side ruching for this version as well; I just don't like to combine it with the cowl neck. 

Happy sewing!
