Sobetto with a collar

I was too fussed about my original sobetto. I should have really thought about my fabric  choice, but Rachel from house of pinheiro suggested either I add a collar to the sobetto, or maybe use it as a pyjama top?

Not giving away to much information, but to be honest I don't really wear pyjamas ;) so I opted to add the collar instead.

Truthfully I'm still not convinced with the fabric choice for this sobetto top but with the collar added to it I think I might just wear it! (Thanks Rachel for the suggestion). It's odd to think that I can be full of suggestions and ideas for other people but come my own stuff I just haven't a clue. Left to me this sobetto would have just been dumped in the corner, but with collar I think it will be fine to wear to work.

One thing I really like about adding the collar is that it high lights the scoop at the back more. Which is nice because I actually like exposing that part of my back. It always looks quite toned and tanned even if I do say so myself ;)

The down side of the collar on the sobetto is that it can't really be worn with a cardigan. I've tried but it just doesn't look right. It's the scoop! It's sits much lower than the neck-line of the cardi so the collar can't be worn over the top of it and for that reason I'm just not liking the combination.

So I guess I'll just have to wait for warmer weather. (that could be a while...........)


  1. Ohh, I really like the added collar... It's looking much better... If you need more details , two cute buttons bellow the colar.. I love details as you can tell lol.. I'm glad my suggestion worked x

    1. Thank you Rachel!! I have been thinking about the buttons lol! I'm undecided yet though!!

  2. Looks super - I add buttons on a few I made, just to break the front up and they made the world of difference...J

  3. It looks great! It fits you really well, and the collar looks great! Maybe if you wear it with something high-waisted and tuck it in it will feel less pajama-y to you.

  4. Thanks for the tips girls x

How To: Inserting a side seam zip with pocket

This skirt was meant to have a center back zip along with side seam pockets. Instead I put the two together and combined the zip into the side seam pocket and thought I would share with you how I did it or basically winged it ;)

What You should Know First:
This is easier than it looks all you need to do is be able to insert an invisible zip. The waist band was faced but I found it easier to attach the facing once the zip was in place.  This skirt also had lining but the lining fabric is treated as a single layer with the fashion fabric.
Prior to inserting the zip and pockets and treating the lining and fabric as one layer, I made sure both side seams were over-locked 
Construction Tips: These are by no means a definite way to do this, just the way I did it.  . 

1.  Pocket pieces should be kept separate, which makes it easier to place on the the skirt.

2. Taking the one pocket piece (Ignore that I have two in the pic) I lined it up on the right side of the skirt, with the correspondin…
