Avant Garden Fantasia Tova

Tova in Avant Garden by Ivy Arch

Possibly the finest frock I've made this year, or my current fave at least. As promised, it's my second Wiksten Tova, this time in Fantasia fabric from MoMo's recent Avant Garden collection for Moda. This colourway is Aqua Skies, the print is so splendid! I was overjoyed to find MoMo's designs in my local fabric shop – Worthing's Eclectic Maker. They had both the cotton, and linen/cotton mix varieties of these prints. I chose a linen mix as it felt more suitable for autumn/winter wear and also bought a small piece of contrasting Poppin Poppies print for the yoke.

The Tova was a quick make a second time round, this time I lengthened the sleeves a little and decided not to add a cuff as it felt too bulky in this fabric. I added pockets into the side seams, made with the Poppin Poppies contrast fabric. They're hidden away from sight but make me very happy indeed!
