Friends, like so many of you fell in love with Sewaholic's Pendrell Blouse (which I've yet to try by the way), I've fallen hard for the Sorbetto Top! Not only do I find its simplicity really classy, it's also a generous free download by Colette Patterns. It's definitely going to become a summer staple for me as it's so versatile!
Here's my first version, with many more to come I suspect:

And one demonstrating how lovely and sheer my voile is:
I wore my Sorbetto Top to work today and my friend Jenny made my day by commenting that it looked like something from Topshop. That's how cool this pattern is!
A word of warning though, despite being pretty busty myself, I found that this pattern came up quite big. I originally cut out a US 10 (UK 12) and it was huge, so I actually scaled down to a US 6 (UK 8)...so you may actually want to make a quick muslin first.
Anyway, this means two garments down and one to go of my self-imposed challenge!
