I love the shape and the fit - I am pretty proud of myself for enlarging the pattern it is working!
It isn't up to The Great British Sewing Bee scrutiny, but I love them!
So the one I made this week looks like this:
It bright and summery! I made a few adjustments to the pattern for this one.
Firstly I put pleats into the front instead of gathering. Even trying really hard I just couldn't the gathering even so I just decided to make my life simpler and use pleats - after all that is the bonus of making your own clothes, you can choose!
Next I wanted short sleeves so I can wear it in the summer and add an under layer in the winter if want to. On the pink shirt I had shortened the sleeves and left them with a basic hem. This time I decided to add some elastic to see how that would look.
They have given me puffy sleeves. That along with a tiny bit of gathering at the top has changed the book of the sleeve!
Finally I wanted a more fitted look that Tova #1. So I marked and pinned the sides pulling it in by over an inch on the waist and the taking it out again. Much more fitted, but still mega comfy!
I really doubt it! Love the pattern and I am enjoying using it as a launching point for trying different ideas out!
I haven't decided what to wear to the awards ceremony yet, but I bought tights for this dress just in case!
