This post is a little late, considering I think I made this, what? A few weeks ago? Better late than never!
So after making my daughter the Roller Skate dress, I knew I needed to make myself something! I'd bought some fabrics from Sew Mama Sew's $6 sale, and I had some AMH linen. My sewing buddy Emily and I decided to encourage each other by setting a deadline and messaging each other through instagram. We both decided on the Wiksten Tova.
I decided quite last minute that I was too scared to use my precious AMH linen on my first attempt at garment making, so I headed out to Hancock Fabric and pick up this Madras material. It wasn't that hard to put together, and I really like the results.
I decided to leave off the sleeves. I thought they looked kinda funny, and I had seen sleeveless versions around the web and liked them more than the ones with sleeves!
I made a small and used a medium length since I like long shirts, and did no other alterations. I've worn it a few times and noticed that the top is tight across my back and shoulders. I think when I make this again I'll size up to a medium and perhaps take in the sides just a touch. It's a cute shirt that I think will get plenty of use!
I've got a lot of things to blog about (I've been busy) so stay tuned!
