I have long admired Jenny Gordy’s Wiksten creations, but have never really splurged and purchased anything she has made until last fall. I bought the Tova Dress/Shirt pattern a bit reluctantly given the price, but all regrets have since flown out the window.
Over the weekend, I made two Tova dresses. For the first one, I used cotton voile from Anna Maria Horner’s Innocent Crush line. I think this will be a great spring/summer dress.
With all the snow and the -2 degree weather we had this morning, I wanted to make another dress I could wear during the winter. I remembered I had purchased 2 yards of black and gray tweed wool a few years back, so I dug that out. I made a winter Tova dress last night, and I think this may be my new favorite dress. The fabric has tiny flecks of teal and hot pink which don’t come through in the photos.
I think the most challenging part was making sure the corners of the yoke had a nice crisp angle.
I already have fabric picked out for a Tova shirt. I also wan to try making a short sleeve version of the dress for the summer.
