When life gives you the wrong sewing pattern...
...make a short-sleeved Tova top.
So, yes, one moody day I meant to make Kristina's version of a sleeved Wiksten tank, and I grabbed the pattern for the Tova top and cut away. After taking a week-long break and acknowledging that I did not have the fabric supply to make a brand new top, I made a Tova top. BUT, I made it short-sleeved.
I chopped the sleeve to about 3 inches below the armhole decrease (is that what you call it in sewing?) and hemmed it to the same dimensions as the shirt hem.
So, as if cutting the wrong pattern wasn't enough, I managed to cut the back piece about FIVE INCHES shorter than the front, due to a fold in the pattern that I didn't pay enough attention to. Ugh again. Like the hack job I am, I just sewed a panel on the bottom back, see?
It's there, but the fabric is busy enough that I don't think it's too noticeable.
And another thing. We went to Philly yesterday (loved) and look what I found:
And all the fabric stores are closed on Sunday. Smunch Luck.
