More sewing for me

Having a lovely time these days doing some selfish sewing. I made a Sorbetto out of some interesting two faced Japanese cotton.  I omitted the decorative pleat on the front as indicated in the pattern. I made a back seam in order to fit the pattern pieces onto my 1 metre of narrow fabric, and added a 1/2 inch pleat at the back at the same time to give me a bit more hip room. French seams throughout.
It came together very nicely. I am really getting the hang of bias tape facing and using the edge stitch foot on my Bernina.
