Starting Out

I am working out my sewing sucesses with fear and some trepidation. I am currently working with the free Collete - Sorbetto Tank Top I found at
Just about every sewing blog I have visited has this shirt on it.  So I decided to try it for myself.  The pattern is simple.  If you want something more stylish than a plain T then give this one a try.  Feels great and the wide shoulder stops you from having to pull the top back in place.
Here is a short review of the pattern. 
·         Pattern Description:  T- Shirt
·         Pattern Sizing:  6 – 18.  I sewed a size 16
·         Did it look like the photo on the pattern envelope once you were done sewing with it?  Yes.
·         Were the instructions easy to follow?  Yes, very easy to understand.
·         What did you particularly like or dislike about the pattern?  I like the bias tape on the finished edges.  I had never worked with bias tape and this help me to overcome my anxiety.
·         Fabric Used:  Pink Striped gauze.  On hindsight, I should have lined the top, but am content to wear a t-shirt underneath.
·         Pattern alterations or any design changes you made:  None
·         Would you sew it again? Would you recommend it to others?  Yes, I plan on doing this again, with some changes. 
·         Final Thoughts:  This was a very easy top and suits my style very well.
