Wiksten Tova ePatterns!

Wiksten has released their patterns as ePatterns! Yeah! That means we can download and sew within hours. I love ePatterns!
My first attempt was a this pink and orange striped shirt.
I never really know what size to make for myself because I am a petite person. I tried the medium size first.
It is was a little on the big side and that’s when I added the orange buttons.
Here is my second attempt, the Tova dress! I love it. I need to add pockets to my next dress.
Skills (needed or learned): straight stitching, gathering and curved stitching.
Pros: no zippers, interfacing, buttons, extras
Con: I really did not like the collar. (I only used one collar piece the second time instead of two.)
If you make your own Wiksten, Tova blouse or dress you too can add your own pictures to Flickr: The Wiksten Patterns Pool.
Plus, a sew along is starting at verykerryberry: Tova.
Happy Stitching!

what cute blouses. I swear I have this pattern for the 70's, in the archives. on the second blouse the little ruffle trimming the yoke is perfect. Nice fabrics too.
