THIS could go wrong! Great little pattern from Colette Patterns. Great Fabric from So Sew Easy. Sewn well with no issues or problems. Made a small adjustment to try to make it look a little better on me but, in the end, the top just doesn’t suit me. Oh, it’s not that bad but it isn’t that great, either.
I had wanted to make a sleeveless summer top with this fabric so I chose something I knew I could make and would look well made (because let’s face it, my sewing doesn’t always turn out to be top-notch. I don’t want to be Becky Home-ecky, you know?).
This is one of the disappointing results of choosing the wrong pattern for your body type. I really prefer form-fitting tops because I think they make me look less bulky. Hence, why I tend towards tees or princess seams. I was hoping against hope that somehow, this Sorbetto would still work for me. I even put a tie on the back to try to make it appear less blousy.
But, I think what really bothers me is that I have gotten to the point in my life where I really should not show my upper arms. These pictures really showed me that I need to start lifting weights to get some better shape to those arms! Ugh!
I also need to get rid of the farmer’s tan, lol!
Have a fantastic day!
