A Sorbetto and our newly hatched ducklings.

 ~ Five hours old ~

Modelling a new Sorbetto top with the ultimate accessory - newly hatched ducklings!

I made this Sorbetto in a Size 4, which fitted much better than the previous which had been a little bigger. I made this using a Japanese Lawn cotton and trimmed the edges with complimentary bias binding.

I decided to keep the folded panel down the centre. Although next time I think I will branch out a little and try a few different styles (pleats, buttons, lace).

After what felt like months of talking and guessing, I was beginning to think these little lovelies would never hatch.

But they did today.

All 8 of them... and counting!

  1. Oooohhh! What adorable ducklings! Love your Sorbetto. I must get around to making one of them soon!

    1. Oh you should Debi, it is such a simple pattern. I would hope if you did that you would put an amazingly vintage twist on it. I have been LOVING you A-Z blog posts at the moment, they are truly great.

  2. I just love the Sorbetto top - must start making a few more for myself now that Spring has sprung so quickly up on us!

    1. Hasn't it just?! We had a 30 degree day in Maitland last week! It is going to be one hot summer...

  3. I love your version! I am going to try and make one this weekend. The pattern seems easy enough.
