 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 .


  1. Ich habe mir das Schnittmuster auch schon ein paar Mal angesehen. Aber es ist für meine Figur nichts. Dir steht Tova wirklich gut!
    Ich muss mir unbedingt einen Schnitt suchen, der auch so einen schönen Einsatz hat. Da kann man wirklich gut besondere Stoffe präsentieren. Ganzkörper ist das ja oft "to much" (-:

    Ich lese Dein Blog sehr gerne, auch wenn mir oft die richtigen Worte fehlen. Deine genähten Kunstwerke bewundere ich sehr!
    Ganz liebe Grüße

  2. love this tova on you the colour of the pattern print is perfect with you complexion & yes your pretty blonde hair & the white is so refreshing & light! You always look beautiful be it in scarves or with hair & soon you will have your hair growing back in. I can't imagine how hard it is to go through all this again, but you will get to the other side! All the love in the world!!!!

  3. I am so glad that you have Mr. Artistic to love you throughout all of this... until your health fully returns.

  4. Your hair will grow back! Love the top:)
