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 ❤

Off shoulder Sun Dress

Hello Sewcialists,

Happy 4th of July to all the beautiful ladies in the USA and a happy Monday to everyone else around the world. I woke up dreaming about an off shoulder sundress and that is exactly what I made in the first half of my Monday and I absolutely love it!

I am planning to conduct a lesson on it as well so this was the first prototype, I have plans to make more. So keep tuning in.

The Grey Dress

Hello Sewcialists,

I never thought I’ll wear a one shoulder dress, but life is quite unpredictable and I made this dress which is one of my most favorites!

I used a grey marl for the top part and a black knit for the skirt. I self drafted the pattern after being inspired by all the lovely one shoulder dresses on ASOS.com.

 

Hope you all like it!

Till next time,

The Floral Skirt

Hello Sewcialists,

So here’s another make of my current favorite silhouette – the pencil skirt. The fabric was sent to me by my aunt all the way from Melbourne and I absolutely love it! Enjoy!

The One Hour Skirt

Hello Sewcialists,

I decided to do a post about my first one hour skirt which I whipped up in less than an hour almost an year ago! It has not seen the world yet, but it’s cherished in my closet. So here’s a piece of clothing that made me fall in love with sewing all over again.

The Ultimate Pencil Skirt

Hello Sewcialists,

Being a bit on the curvy side means it’s always challenging to find clothes that fits perfect around all your curves. This was one reason I got back into sewing. And today I realize how a few simple well fitting silhouettes can dominate your style!

As you all know, I am a big fan of shift dresses. That is probably my number one silhouette. Well, this is my second. A well sewn, we fitted, tailored skirt. It can also be called a pencil skirt.

So this is my latest royal blue pencil skirt that I am absolutely in love with!
