Tova

Been strangely distracted by a lot of running around the last week or two.

I did manage to get a little sewing done.  I finally made the Tova top that it seems everyone else that sews clothes for themselves has already tried.  I even tested out some of the fancy stitches on my sewing machine.  Dipped into my freshly organized stash and decided on some Moda Crossweave in blue.

It's a little wrinkled.  I was wearing it for most of the day before I had someone available to snap a shot or two.


That's it for today. Gotta watch what could be the last game of the playoffs, and I'm hoping to avoid a broken heart. Much love, Martin. Much love.

  2. Really really nice top! I'm afraid I couldn't pull that look off....a little too busty here. :)

    We're almost to the end of the 3rd period here - we're a bit behind on the game. So far tied.

  7. Sadly I have never heard of this tova shirt but it's super cute! I haven't made a shirt for real yet - only shirts for Halloween and who cares about getting the perfect fit a costume right? I like the fabric too.

  8. This is weird, I had a friend who had a horse named Tova. I had no idea it was an actual thing. Nice stitching!
