This is my first Tova made from Sweetwater Reunion. I wanted it to be a winter shirt so I made the sleeves full length. I changed around the order of the instructions as I find set in sleeves a real pain in the butt. Here is how it works best for me:
- sew the shoulder seams but do not sew the side seams yet
- sew the collar on first before adding the sleeves - I find less fabric bulk is easier to manage
- sew the sleeves in next - I find it much easier to ease them in with the bodice laid out flat rather than trying to set them in
- then sew the side seams and arm sleeve all in one go
This one is Anna Maria Horner Innocent Crush
And this one is Leah Duncan Maya - I'm loving this print at the moment!
