Friends, I really love when I can complete two challenges at once. The Sew Weekly theme this week is "Yellow" and I happened to have some of this amazingly soft knit leftover from my Now and Then outfit. I used almost every last bit of this fabric, but I was able to squeeze out a Sorbetto!
I have another knit Sorbetto in my closet that I wear CONSTANTLY. It comes off my body, goes into the laundry, gets washed, and goes back on my body. A fabulously comfortable cycle, really. I made that one out of a jersey pillowcase so I knew it was possible to make a knit Sorbetto out of an even smaller amount of fabric than usual. I mainly wear the knit Sorbetto around the house and to sleep in, and I thought it was high time to add another to my collection.
I love how this version turned out! I love the neck and armhole bindings, especially. They match up in the front and back so very well. I attached these using the Renfrew cuff and neck binding method - it saved so much time and hand stitching that I would have felt obligated to do. Overall, this took me about three hours. That's probably because I was distracted by the Olympics. These things happen.
I've already started sleeping in this, so I can tell you that it is just as comfortable as I had hoped. I see several more of these being made in my near future!
Hooray for comfortable scrap busting!
Friends, have you ever made a knit Sorbetto? Let me know below - I would love to see your versions!
