Colette Sorbetto Top

Hello World,

I got back into sewing after a brief hiatus and I started with this fabulous free pattern from Colette. The “Sorbetto” was recently re-launched with a sleeve option and a longer length. I printed the pattern last year and never got around to make it until now.

I’m absolutely in love with the simple shape and it’s perfect for the heat wave happening here in Sri Lanka. I think I might make a few more and some for my friends – it’s such a versatile and easy to make style and I highly recommend it. Go ahead, spend 2 hours and make yourself a fabulous Sorbetto 🙂

Below are my makes to beat the heat in style ❤

Linen & Pearls

Hello Sewcialists,

I am obsessed with making shift dresses, they are simple, classy and flattering on most body types. I have made quite a few shift dresses for the past few months and I love each one of them.

I’ve promised myself to sew something for myself every week and write a weekly post about my new makes. I am quite adamant to stick to this resolution and I may need to get a new closet to accommodate all the new makes.

Here’s my latest shift dress in Linen and a Pearl shoulder embellishment. The pearls were from a  bracelet that was too big for me, I took it apart and attached it to the dress.

I used simplicity new look 6145 for the base and changed the sleeves into a pleated bishop sleeve. I loved how it came out and already wore it to church.

hope you all like it! Till next time…

Love, Ludee

The Faux Wrap Dress

Hello Sewcialists,

Happy new year to all of you out there. I have been a very lousy blogger, but I have been a very good sewer. I’ve sewn quite a lot of pieces since my last post and I hope to write posts about them before the month ends.

I made the Burda Style 6829 dress in two beautiful fabrics, one for me and the other for a friend, and I love both! Looking forward to make some more in this year. The only adjustment I made was reducing the length by 2 inches because we both wanted it short and sexy.
