negative on the 4. and none of them were legit 100% follow-the-directions sorbettos.
the swap. i kept the bottom hems [lazy] and since they didnt quite line up i added a 2" slit on both sides. its definitely long enough to wear with leggings but since its 100% polyester ..its not exactly sweltering summer wear.
crazy thrift store run. again, no front pleat on the sorbetto and no bias tape. the skirt
itself was pieced on the bias so it may prove to be a bit too swingy for
a decent top. its also apparently a bit sheer for a turquoise bra.
may thrifting haul and since it is legit silk i was scared to iron it. the darts are low cos silk is slick as shit and... i dont actually have a sewing table. i use a cutting mat on the floor [carpet] and kind of crawl my way around it with a pair of scissors or a rotary blade. im sure its hilarious to see so im glad i have a 2nd floor apartment. then again for a complex with 200+ apartments... i rarely see neighbors. but i digress. the sides are pretty sloppily cut, the shoulders are wonky, and i was too lazy to remove the pocket. in hindsight i def should have atleast removed the button on the pocket... but it will be fine under a blazer so im not too concerned. it generally ended as it was supposed to - ie it is no longer a large men's short sleeve shirt. sorbetto sans front pleat and bias tape.
i dont mind making bias tape from 100% cotton cos i can iron the crap out of it and not worry about melting. any other fabric... ever. notsomuch. but my rolled hems are definitely improving and the sorbetto cut is generous enough that it all turns out gravy.
