I've made myself a top today using the free Sorbetto pattern and a bed sheet I bought from the charity shop. I thought the original was a bit short so I added 2.5 inches to the length.
The neck and armholes are finished with bias binding. I've made my own bias binding before (without the use of a gizmo) and I kept burning my fingers when trying to press the edges in. This time I just pressed it in half but not the edges to the middle and then pinned it on, folding in as I went
It actually came out a lot better than when I've pre-pressed it! (and no burnt fingers)
I made this on my new sewing machine which I got yesterday (after giving my old one to my daughter).
It's really quiet compared to my old one, and just look at all the free stuff I got with it.
50 large reels of thread, a set of scissors and a few other bits and bobs.
Oh, if you're wondering what the title refers to, it's a TV advert for Wall's Cornettos which was sung to the tune of O Sole Mio - 'Just one Cornetto' (if you google it you won't be able to get it out of your head).
