After making several sleeveless Tovas this past summer (here, here, and 2 more here), I figured it was about time I try my hand at the long sleeves. It really is fitting to have longer sleeves, since it is cold and mostly snowy here from November through April. This first one is made out of my favorite Liberty of London print from their Bloomsbury Gardens line. This is the same print that I used in my autumn Washi tunic... Can you tell I like it?
The only modification I made was to narrow the waist a bit. When I was testing the fit of the width, which was before I put on the sleeves, I almost decided to leave the sleeves off. Isn't it so cute like that??? I fought the urge and finished it up, and I'm glad that I did. I really like the end result and have been wearing it often. (However, I do think I might get this dark blue in another floral print for a sleeveless tova this summer!)
Next up is a gingham Tova. This is completely
copied inspired by my friend Ashley. I have a thing for gingham, so when I saw hers I just knew I had to make one for myself. This is Lecien yarn dyed gingham which is a heavier fabric with a really nice drape.
Up next in my continued love for garment sewing is another washi. This time with some Tova sleeves! I am cutting it out today.
Can you believe that Thanksgiving is NEXT WEEK? I better get my butt in gear, we always host. Happy Monday!
PS - Tova pattern available here.
