We’ve been to Northumberland for a family gathering and to blow away (in gusty wind and rain) the Halloween cobwebs. It’s a beautiful place, I think I could live there. Yes, I could absolutely live there.
Anyway, before I left I mentioned my ‘going out top’. This is ironic because I actually never seem to go out these days, but I thought I’d make one just in case (you never know).
In the absence of a suitable pattern and with time being of the essence, I turned to the trusty Sorbetto to save the day. With a little neckline adjustment here and the addition of long sleeves there, I think it went quite well.
The fabric was from my Walthamstow stash and I can safely say that the price (£1.50 metre!) reflected the quality (there was a little bit of swearing), but no worries I shan’t be wearing it that much I don’t suppose!
I made the back from two pieces and added a button and loop so I could get it on and off easily but apart from that I think it’s still a Sorbetto at heart. If there is ever a ‘one pattern, one month‘ event then I think I’m your girl!
Did I wear it in Northumberland? Not on your nellie. Far too cold for silly flimsies!
