Tova Shirt Completed
Finally the Tova shirt is complete. I really enjoyed the support and suggestions from verykerryberry, it made me wish I had found her site at the start of the sew-a-long so I could have participated. The instructions are very clear but I so rarely make clothing that following those instructions does not come easy to me.
I really like the finished result, however I think I will go a size up next time.
While the sizing was based on the bust, it is actually my broad shoulders and back that fill in this shirt, and I know better. Fitting my shoulders in women's commercial cuts is right up there with my long torso as a problem areas.
Since I don't know enough about altering, going a size up is about the only option I have. The shirt fits, but I don't like it tight across the upper back and that is where I feel it.
With Tova done I am free to start another project much to the cats' delight (I hope we all survive my sewing area + cats).
I was ironing and cutting fabric while watching Kathy Sdao dog training video (which is completely inspiring) and I kept feeling this pulling below me.
Once I stepped away from the ironing board the full battle was on.
Nim slept through all the commotion.
Have a gentle Sunday. I am more than ready for a new week...
