Sorrento Top With A Twist

Product Information

A Twist on the Sorrento Pattern!


 This cute outfit was just listed in the LJC online store a few days ago, but is already sold out! But don’t worry, We have a orange /grey color combo that is in the store now and other new items on the way. So be sure to check back daily or follow us on Facebook so you don’t miss any of the new items that we stock.  
 We love this cute little top made from a modified version of the Sorrento Pattern. Basically I used the pattern with a few slight modifications (just gather the front 1/2″ smaller than the pattern directions so the top sits up a bit higher on the chest) and this 5 Strand Braid Tutorial Post I came across on Pinterest for the trim. LJC Sorrento Pattern It’s super cute and a pretty quick project to make. It’s also great for varying colors of knit scraps that you might have laying around! 
Another fun idea is to simply add a few inches to the length of the top and you have a super cute summer dress! I’d love to see what variations you come up with, feel free to post your finished projects on our Facebook page

    Your 5 strand braid Tutorial Post has a bad link, it’ll link you to pinterest, but their link is bad. 🙁

    Hi Cinnamon, I was wondering, how thick did you cut the strips for the braid, and how did you finish the ends? I’m halfway through a top and I’m finding that I’m improvising those details. Just curious how the professionals do it! 🙂 Thank you!

      Hi Abby,
      The strips are about 1/2″ wide and cut so that the fabric curls under when pulled. You’ll notice on a knit that if it’s stretched in one direction it curls up and you see the wrong side of the fabric, if you stretch it in the other direction it will curl so that you see the right side (this is what you want). The ends are sewn with the machine to hole it all together. One side is covered with the velcro on the back opening, the other side can be folded under with the velcro that is on the underside.

      Hope this helps to clarify 🙂
