I don't know if I told you that I made clothes when I started sewing back in 2006.
I made lots of dresses, skirts and tops untill I moved to bag making and dolly sewing.
Since a few week I see lots of Tova's popping up everywhere in blogland or flickr and knew that I have to try that pattern too. Reading clothes patterns and sew inversible zippers in dresses and skirts is no problem for me.
But all these skills are not needed for this pattern. It's definetly a pattern for begginers.
It's very easy to follow and quickly made.
It's my first Tova and I can see myself making a few more. The fabric I used for the main of the dress is an old one from my stash. I used this fabric already 2006 for another dress.
The fabric is much thinner than quilting cotton.
The pink flower fabric is quilting cotton weight. It's from my stash and one of my fave fabrics. I'm very happy that I find a project where I can see it quiet often.
This photos where taken yesterday by mr. artistic. These are the last ones with my pretty blonde hair.
While I typing this my hair is already chopped off because it was coming off.
I'm going to miss my blonde hair a lot. I know it's coming back but I was so proud having blonde hair again.
Bye bye blonde hair. Hopefully I will see you again at the end of this year.
The next Tova will be a short sleeved one with hawaii print. The fabric is in my stash since 6 years and I was waiting for perfect pattern to use it.
I'm glad that I found it .
