Enough scissors and adhesives to last a lifetime
I have to admit, I was a bit stumped because I haven't worked on any paper specific projects in a long, long time. But then it dawned on me: the entire online sewing community has been ALL OVER Colette's new free pattern, the Sorbetto Tank Top. It was obviously the perfect fit!
Day 23: Sorbetto-betto
I had high hopes of finishing this project in one day, and I almost did too.
Being frugal, I went thrifting for fabric. My local Salvation Army doesn't have much in the form of actual yardage, so I found a cute dress that was just one size too small for me and used the skirt portion for my top. Does that make this a refashion?
The pop-up tape helped speed up the process of piecing together the pattern, which is something I totally dread whenever the inevitable happens and I fall in love with online-only patterns. I used their heavy duty packaging tape to seal all of my page ends before cutting out the pattern pieces with their precision scissors. Total breeze.
If I had made enough bias tape, I would have finished her in time, but I don't do so well with proper project planning it seems... In fact, I didn't even start on my bias tape until it was time to attach it. Whoops?
Day 24: Sorbetto Baby + Bias Tape Party!
I started making more bias tape the moment I woke up! I even got carried away and cut into some of my fat quarters.
