Wiksten Tova Tunic...
By buzzmills on February 26, 2013
I thought that, perhaps, (silly me) I would try to get a new dress in for myself by Christmas. HA! Seriously, I knew I was kidding myself...But, I really wanted to try something new for myself. While I certainly love my Washi dress, and tunics I was looking to branch out a bit...
And then early in January Jennifer started talking about making a Wiksten Tova of her own, and then Anna and Erin made two corduroy dresses that I loved and it was all over...decision made...Tova it was!
I bought fabric to use as a "muslin" tunic and some to use to make a dress. I loved Jeni's idea to make her muslin out of inexpensive fabric so that if it worked out then it would still be wearable. Great idea. I found some fabric that was marked way down at Fabricworm (Joel Dewberry, Handpicked Daisies) and used that as my muslin.
I made this version based on my measurements, but I felt like it was a bit too big. Not crazy big that I couldn't wear it, because I do wear it, a lot! I really do love it! But, big enough that I decided to go down a size for the dress version. But that's tomorrow...
