It’s pretty darn hot in Madison. Definitely too hot right now for this flannel version of the Tova. But I’ve worn this top several times in cooler weather and it’s perfectly cozy. This is the first time I’ve worked with nani IRO flannel for clothing. I made a quick scarf a few months ago, pairing the flannel with a solid voile. It’s so lovely! Super lightweight and soft. It’s hard to see but the polka dots on the fabric actually have a bit of glitter on them. We sold out of this shipment quite quickly, but we’re expecting more nani IRO in the next few weeks.
I love how this shirt fits. I love the bib yoke and the sleeves. I also always love the way that Jenny finishes her hems and cuffs. It’s true, I just can’t say enough good things about Wiksten patterns. Having tried so many, I just really notice the difference in quality which makes sewing these garments so much more fun.
My other Tova in Liberty is here. I also heart it a lot.

What a gorgeous tunic! You can never go wrong with a spotty fabric.
Lovely choice of fabric. I have a lot of love for both designers.

I have this wikstenmade pattern at home & have been searching for the perfect fabric for it. I’ve considered nani iro’s delicate purple flowers on cream background… but haven’t nailed it down for sure. I love love love your choice!
