Western Challenge at Sew Weekly
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 ....as 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.
