My New Shirt

I had really admired the 'Tova' shirt/dress by Wiksten that had been blogged about a lot! But the cost and availability of the pattern has led to my own creativity being stretched. So I decided to draft my own pattern, make in calico, adapt, the make for real. I am thrilled with the outcome! The green fabric came from Global Fabrics at least a year ago and is very prone to creasing. I am pleased with the fit, though I did have to take out most of the gathers into the yoke, to suit my buxom self.
Yeah a new shirt!
