MMM 2015, Day 15: Sorbetto, adapted for knits + sleeves

Me-Made-May, day 15!

More catching up, this is what I wore last Friday. Fridays during Me-Made-May are Sorbetto days, a free PDF download from Colette Patterns, featuring bust darts, bound neckline and armholes, and a box pleat detail down the front. This version has been adapted for knits:

Pattern & Instructions, Garment Assembly – see this post from the start of Me-Made-May.

Garment Alterations:

To accommodate for the stretch in knits, I modified the ease in a few places.

I added a little extra to the armscye:

I trimmed a little off the sides and shoulder seams:

I also added sleeves:

Final Thoughts:

If you’ve done a muslin already, the Sorbetto takes about an hour or two to make. Nothin’ fancy, but super comfy…
