Description

Pattern is ‘Tova’ by Wiksten patterns (http://www.shopwiksten.com/category/sewing-patterns). I made a small and whilst it fits perfectly, next time I want it a bit roomier and longer. The cuffs in particular need to be looser on me. Blogs all over the net have warned that the bib piece is tricky and by golly it sure was! I made the sleeves slightly puffy at the top because the fabric is pretty blokey and the top needed some girlier bits. Despite the trickiness, I enjoyed making this and have already bought fabric to make another. A good wardrobe staple that is flattering and comfortable. Nice.

Material Notes

Vintage plaid from my mother-in-law. Cotton (I assume).

      Thanks! I fixed up the sleeve cuffs and lengthened the hem slightly so now it’s perfect…and I’m going to make another.
