Another Tova Top

Another Tova Top

I made myself another shirt! It's an altered Tova in cotton eyelet. Very happy with it!

So this is my second Tova top. The fabric is just some cotton eyelet I picked up at Lincraft a while back. The first one I made had some sizing issues that I tried to correct this time. I added an inch to the center back and top front pieces, and I flared out the bottom a bit too to give some more room around the hips. I also chopped the sleeves off at the elbows. (I forgot to add an inch to the bottom front piece, which means that this one isn’t as gathered at the bust line. That turned out okay, though.) This one definitely fits better through the bust now, but I still feel like my shoulders are constricted when I hold my arms out in front. Could that be the sleeve depth? Should I try and alter that next time? I’ll probably make at least one more so I can keep practicing. It’s a nice blouse to wear to work as well…

  1. There are some great shoulder adjustment tips on Collette pattern Anise work book. My forward rolling shoulders always make fitting shirts a pain. Looks good though.
