Just 2 small sewing projects from me in October - I've been busy with yarny things and cross-stitch gifts so I'm not slacking!
I needed a couple of sleeveless tops for work so sorted through my stash for some small pieces of fabric that I could squeeze Sorbettos out of. I bought this Japanese cotton at a craft fair last September, £6 for just shy of 3/4 of a yard. Plus some bias tape I had in my stash.
I love these buttons, I picked them up in a charity shop for 10p. I'm pleased with this top, it's such good quality fine cotton, for just £6.10p - bargain.
This fabric was £4 from a vintage fair. I didn't have any matching bias (or anything suitable to make it from). I had even less of this so couldn't even make the facings out of the same fabric - I used scraps of cotton from my leftovers box. This is definitely a tana lawn, lovely to wear. I really like all the different colours in the pattern - easy to accessorise and incorporate into different outfits.
I love the Sorbetto pattern but have tweaked it over time - I managed to make both of these longer which is really handy for tucking in or wearing loose - makes it much more versatile.
So that's a tiny monthly total of about 1.5 yards Sarah Liz - but I shall get plenty of wear out of both of them!
