I made another Tova top.
Normally I like to complete one project before beginning another, but I started this second Tova two weeks ago and got distracted somewhere around setting in the sleeves…and then again when it was time to slip stitch the collar…and it wasn’t the fault of the sleeves or the collar, I’ve just been really scattered lately. There are so many things I want to make right now that I can’t stay focused on just one at a time. I kept taking breaks from the Tova to start something else, thus finishing nothing and making a huge mess in the process. I’m driving myself crazy with pieces of various projects all over the place, so I buckled down and finished this one up.
My first Tova has already seen enough wear to make this pattern well worth its price tag. Like I said in that post, I don’t buy clothing very often – and if something is comfortable and fits well, I’ll happily wear it over and over (and over) again. Apparently others were getting a bit tired of it though, because after seeing me in the same shirt for three visits in a row, my mom gently suggested that I make myself another one. That was the plan all along, but if she wanted to watch my kid while I went to the fabric store, I wasn’t about to turn that down.
The polka-dotty stripes are from the Darling Clementine line by Timeless Treasures. It’s a lightweight cotton lawn – more crisp than the gray checked fabric I used for the first shirt, but still super soft. Probably better for spring than winter though. Maybe flannel for number three?
