Le Challenge is back... and as per usual, I made it just...and in fact this post is really late.. But dots was the theme, and dots I give you! Let's start by the only thing that comes to my mind when I think about this project - this fabric did my head in, but I love this top. It was so slippery, I just did not control any of the sewing process - ok maybe I did a bit because it does look like the Tova it is meant to be.
Not sure I have a lot to say, except that this is my favourite make ever. It a Tova but without the collar, it is much more my style. I applied a light fusible interfacing to the placket, and finished with a bias tape (although I really need to redo this for a better finish). I also shortened the top a bit. It is a tad on the small side at the moment (to encourage me to diet better..?!)
This fabric has been in my stash for at least a couple of years, and I have no idea where I got it from. I am surprised I actually like it on me, but that blue/grey really works for me - I suppose the dots/flowers add interest?
Here you are I hated the process, but love the result - the perfect combination for Valentine's Day?!
