Me Made May ’12 – Goodbye, leopard print Sorbetto


Just as I was feeling all chuffed with myself for pairing up one of my newest Me Mades with the last ever garment I bought from cheaptastic Primarni, I noticed THIS:

A rip in the sleeve!

GAH. I knew I shouldn’t have been in denial about the fit on this one! It doesn’t help that the fabric I used frays ridiculously easily.

I’ll just have to keep my eye out for some more suitable but adequately leopard printed fabric to make another Peter Pan collared Sorbetto, but one that fits properly and doesn’t fray so much this time.

What should I do with this one? I’m loathe to throw it out, but there’s not an awful lot of fabric to play with. Suggestions will be very much appreciated!

    French knickers – although they may need more fabric than you have.

    I have to say, Primani is stupid (not you for using it, just the whole idea). The US have been doing it for at least five years with “Tar-Jay” for Target. I just hope it doesn’t become as ubiquitous as “upcycling” (a word that makes me want to tear out my own eyeballs). And don’t get me started with “on- trend” – it’s very scary šŸ™‚

      To be entirely fair, the whole “Primarni” thing is actually something my friends and I used to say back when I was an undergraduate – it’s a bit silly, but it’s because we used to pronounce it differently (Welshies saying Pree-mark and the English lot saying Pry-mark) so the compromise was Primarni. I’m not aware of any active campaigning by Primark to establish Primarni as a nickname, it’s just a daft name we used to call it šŸ™‚
