The sorbetto top by Colette patterns is my new favourite pattern - super-quick, fits without fuss, and allows for any amount of adaptation...

Here's the link: http://www.colettepatterns.com/blog/colette-patterns-news/free-pattern-to-download-the-sorbetto-top

And here are a few of mine...

The pattern suggests a central pleat at the front, but this is a my summer version with gathers instead.

First attempt - I left the pleat open just in case it turned out a bit small - but should have trusted the pattern, it's true to the sizes on the chart.

Inspired by a version on the colette flickr pool, this has a faux-placket and buttons.

Using up a cotton voile that I've had since before the dawn of time (or at least for the last 15 years), this one is fully lined so as not to be completely transparent.

And finally, a minimalist version in swishy silk.

Why isn't this in the pattern review section? - because I haven't yet made it as per the original pattern. I'll be singing its praises in the reviews as soon as I manage to stick to the instructions all the way through (just once!).

Thanks for looking!

I've been meaning to try that pattern. I love the green fabric! Looks good!

Oh, they are all so pretty!  I was just hunting around for a simple pattern that didn't require much fabric...thanks for sharing!

If you can't do it with duck tape...it can't be done!

I can share your frustration, Loukr! I lost a lot of baby weight after making these and they're all a bit billowy now... I've managed to salvage a couple by making matching shorts (I used a Burdastyle pattern as I wasn't quite brave enough to go for the mini-bloomer on the Collette website) and using them as pyjamas. Maybe that might work for you?

Wow you can get so many variations out of it! I like the one with the buttons! Thanks for the link to the pattern, I think it will be really useful Smiley

I love your tanks - hard to believe they all came from the same pattern.  Such fun!!

One is less than three.
