7DoS: The Summer Sorbetto
Today's Sorbetto, The Summer Sorbetto, is a pretty straight take on the standard pattern. I added sleeves again using the same pattern piece. But, instead of pleating them, I gathered them. The biggest modification to the shirt is the pleated collar, which was quite simple to make.
My original inspiration was the Pleat Trim Top from Boden. I constructed the shirt exactly in the same manner as a basic Sorbetto. For the neckline, I didn't add bias tape. Instead I simply folded over the edges twice and stitched.
To make the pleat, I cut a long piece of fabric twice the width I wanted to the finished pleated trim. Then, I folded the fabric lengthwise, right sides facing each other and stitched up the sides. I turned the piece outside-in so that there were no raw edges and then stitched the ends closed.
I pleated and pinned this piece of fabric around the front neckline (I skipped the back) and then simply stitched directly on top of the pleats.
Here's a closer view of the pleated neckline on the shirt:
