Sorbetto #2

Posted on

Sorbetto tank #2! I made this one up pretty quickly in the afternoon (with plans to wear it out that very evening!). It went together really quickly and this time I added an embellishment underneath the pleat.

Since this basic tank is all about adding whatever you want I did want to do something, though I wasn’t so sure how I felt about what I chose? Bohemian or folks adorable? Or too cutesy and juvenile? Well, either way I did wear it and ultimately liked it. I used a beautiful voile that I bought last summer and it felt great. (Ok, this is not the best picture of me. Please ignore my uncombed wet hair and squinting)

The yellow scalloped trim is actually rick rack inserted underneath the pleat so you just see one half of the bumps.

Sorbetto #3 is going to be a regular cotton green and white print I bought on my birthday fabric trip and this time I might do a contrast neckline binding and some buttons.

I have no good segue for the next topic-bright colors? creative outlets? Anyway, this week I also spruced up our front porch furniture with some new paint. I love the brighter colors and I think they suit the vintage metal furniture (best ever yard sale find!)

The spring/summer of concertgoing continued last night with Paul and I going into the city to see Belle & Sebastian at Radio City Music Hall. It was a great show, fun to be out and about in the city (though I had griped about going in) and really, Radio City Music Hall is magnificent. You feel transported back to a more elegant time. The art deco details are gorgeous and it’s preserved so beautifully. And so many things happen there! I enjoyed the blase way the bartender said “Well, the Tonys were on Sunday you know,and I don’t think they adjusted the air conditioning since”-just a normal workplace comment, except that the work event was the Tony Awards! Here’s Paul and I afterwards out on the street. I don’t know why Philadelphia’s iconic LOVE statue is on 6th avenue, but um, here it is
