Project Smooth Sorbet with Susana: Fragola Top & Dress

Check out the next pattern in the collection!  It's going to be a hit for sure and we can't wait to show you some garments sewn using this pattern!!!  Here's Susana to tell you more:

Grab the Fragola Top & Dress pattern here in the shop.


Hi, I'm Susana from Suco by Susana. I'm an HR expert turned sewing pattern designer. I live in Lisbon, Portugal, with my husband and two children. I love the detail and geometry of sewing patterns, and turning them into beautiful wearable garments.

My family and I love ice cream, especially fruit sorbets, and we have a few wonderful ice cream shops where we go regularly during the summer. My son's favorite is strawberry sorbet, so I thought that Fragola (Italian for strawberry) was a nice name for a summertime pattern.



The Fragola pattern is a top and dress perfect for the warm weather. I was inspired by a RTW top that my daughter had some years ago, and that we always loved. I decided to make it sleeveless but with an optional small gathered frill on the shoulder. I like to turn my daughter's tops into dresses, so this pattern has a top length as well as two dress lengths: knee and maxi. The short bodice is fully lined and closes in the back with two buttons, and the skirt is gathered and with a slight A line to it. The dress options can have side seam pockets. The Fragola pattern is intended for light weight woven fabrics for that breezy summer look, and pairs beautifully with the other patterns in this collection.


ALL the patterns in this collection will launch May 24th.   (Be sure to follow us on Instagram for a chance to win it before you can buy it...)

Everything in this collection plays off the Smooth Sorbet theme.  From the names of the patterns to the fundamental designs.  From the detailed elements of each pattern to the photo shoot props.  From the locations to the fun story titles of each photo shoot.  

And yes, there will be a stunning lookbook (launching on May 31st) so you can see the patterns modeled and get inspired to sew yourself!

Come back every day this week as we reveal each new flavor in Project Smooth Sorbet!!
