Sorbetto top

I'm probably last person in the world who sewed Sorbetto top, but I had to try it.
Pattern: Sorbetto 
Fabric: cotton crape
Alterations: Next time I have to lower bust darts little bit.
Lovely, easy, basic, cute. Will certainly sew it again.

Metallic tops

Z is for Zazzy Metallics
 Fabric: silver lame 
Alterations: This pattern requires two layers of the same fabric. I used lame for top fabric and cotton batiste for lining.
I don't feel comfortable wearing this top. This silver lame looks terrifying with my skin color. Perhaps it can be worn under a black blazer, but will probably end up on a bottom of the closet.
Better result I have achieved with a black organza fabric.
Fabric: black organza with gold dots
I love this pattern. It is perfect for summer top (camisole) with spaghetti straps. Certainly it will be again on my sewing list.
