Description

This is my first time making Tova (why did it take that long?) – and this is my maternity wear version (minimal modifications involved – so a really easy pattern to adapt). I used lightweight fabric (Nani Iro Spring collection), added 8 inches to the gathering part of the pattern and a few other modifications (French seams, slimmer placket for instance).

I love it, and I can see many Tovas being made during my pregnancy.

may be worth mentioning that I am 4 months and a half pregnant in the pictures.

    This is so cute! I have been looking for a good shirt pattern to sew for my pregnant friend forever… I may just have to make something like this.

      It is a great top to have. I think it is really good in a light-weight fabric though to avoid the ‘whale’ look
