This is my 300th post to Color Fiber Texture! Yay!
I'm sure glad I have a name that can encompass all the variations of interests over the years.
Let's see, there is a little COLOR - artsy quilting for example!
You can follow the link above for a page of finished quilts.
COLOR also includes Batik! I've used both regular beeswax and soy wax. Here's a post on using Soy Wax.
Then there is FIBER - Weaving anyone?
One of this blogs all-time more popular posts is the Tutorial on Weaving on a Rigid Heddle Loom.
How about jewelry? Here's a link on a fun way to recycle soda cans.
There are other ways of expressing through COLOR, FIBER & TEXTURE all over the blog. Which is your favorite?
Now, on to the Sorbetto top!
This makes the 4th or 5th Sorbetto I've sewn so far - it's a great easy pattern! Here's the link to the free download of the pattern.
This is from an all-purpose weight linen (IL019) from Fabric Store. They only sell linen and know more about the subtleties than anyone out there.
I think this linen is a little heavy for this top. Next time I'll use the lighter weight. As I was about to put on the bias tape, it just seemed so plain. So a little lace added just enough interest.
The only problem is the neckline is wider than all the other Sorbetto tops I've made. You can see how it is barely staying on the Ms Dressform. All the tops have been cut and sewn by the same exact paper pattern. Hmmm....
Not really sure how to tighten up a top at the shoulders. Suggestions welcome!
Have you sewn a Sorbetto yet?
Happy Creating everyone!
