Western Challenge at Sew Weekly

Western Challenge at Sew Weekly-- August 5-2011

Colette Sorbetto pattern [with sleeve pattern from another pattern]-- free download

Chambray skirt pattern-Butterick 4522

This was a fun challenge.  I had this chambray fabric in my stash.  I had intended on doing a skirt for awhile, and never got around to it.. I also, had the bandana print fabric.   My first intentions were to use a pj pattern and make a peasant blouse for this skirt.. But always.... other things came up...So my time was getting slim,   I knew I had made the sorbetto top before ,and would not need to muslin it. So therefore.. I made the  sorbetto..    I really like how my "western version" of the sorbetto turned out.
  This western set, fits well and is very comfortable.  So.. I see myself getting lots of wear out of it.
[Thankyou  to my sweet husband, who went out in the rain  with me, to take these photos.We watched the weather channel and it was rain for the next 4-5 days...]


  1. Judy, I love this outfit, even in the rain. It is very stylish and I bet you get lots of wear out of it! I really like the shape of your skirt and you know my love of Sorbetto, especially your Sorbettos with sleeves!

    I love your new blog layout and fonts. It looks great!
