American Cherry Sorbetto

Made another Sorbetto tank top just in time for the Fourth!

I started off with the FREE PATTERN, added about four inches in length.  Then I moved the bust darts – aiming them about .75 inches lower at the tip and moving that tip in .75 inches close to the side-seam.    Then I added back darts.  Then I added rick-rack to the bottom.

Instead of quilting cotton (which, as it turns out, is not so great for clothing – says the sweat monster) – I made this one out of a bizarre poly-rayon from the “Linen-Like” aisle.  It has a decent drape and doesn’t wrinkle easily.  Sold.

My friend said it’s got a touch of Mad Men flare to it – Sounds good to me!  Clink!
