Every time I see a Tova on anybody's blog I feel compelled to try the pattern although I must confess the Tova isn't actually my style. But there is something about it obviously otherwise I would not feel so attracted to it and I think I am happy to wear the blouse/caftan style in holidays.
I bought the pattern months ago but stalled and stalled until eventually I bought the right fabric (read all about my double gauze Nani Iro fabric here) and as I have a holiday coming up I thought I better get on with it.
So I started sometime last Saturday thinking I would cut out the pattern and see where it gets me. I wasn't feeling all that good anyway but wanted something to do. Little did I know that a few hours later I had a finished Tova hanging outside my wardrobe to admire. The pattern is great and easy to follow and the whole sewing experience was fantastic. I made a few changes along the way though and have a few tips on sewing with double gauze.
