New Year's Resolution - September


Ok, so I have to tell you guys that I really, really love this top! Some of my new year's resolution sewing has been great and some of them...well....mediocre, I'll admit. But this one - I love!! I used the Wiksten Tova pattern that is available as a pdf download here for $10.

I've talked before about how much I love pdf patterns that you print at home, so you don't need me to bore you with that again. Just know that they suit my impatient personality... If you are interested in downloadable patterns, my advice to you it to invest in a great paper cutter. It will make putting your pattern together a breeze. Enjoyable even!

  1. Hmm... maybe I will have to eventually jump on that Tova bandwagon too... that looks great and your choice of fabric is great. I'm also loving your new posing spot with the photo wall :)
    Maybe if I got one of those paper cutters I might be persuaded to love pdf patterns too.

  3. Oh, wow, this is one of my favorite Tovas yet. I love it in the simple gingham!

    Ugh. I hate PDF patterns. I mean, I tolerate them, when I have no other choice or when I'm too cheap to get the real thing. But my least favorite part is not the cutting. I. Hate. The. Taping. Any magic solutions for that part? If only, right? ;-)

    1. Thanks Inder! You know what, I started taping the pdf patterns with washi tape/paper tape recently. It's pretty low tack, which means you can pull it up and re-position it if you don't get it straight the first time. It makes it much less stressful than regular tape, honestly!
