The fabric is by Kei that I got from the wonderful Treehouse Textiles. The quality is just beautiful. I had fun playing with the stripes and did them in the opposite direction on the front placket and even managed to match them up properly! It feels very orange when I have it on - I think I'll have to pair it with a navy cardigan until I get used to it :)
Then I spotted this gorgeous modified Tova over on Angela Fussy Cut's blog. I decided to make one up in some Sweetwater Reunion that I got on sale. I decided to do pleats on the front instead of gathering it and I love how this turned out.
I think I should stop now…
If you want to see the different order I make the pattern in you can find my notes here.
