Liberty Tova

Three whole days without a post! That's certainly my longest stretch without blogging for a while. I've been a little frazzled these last couple of days. Taking care of Adele last week, when she had both tonsillitis and bronchialitis (double whammy!), certainly took it's toll. Worse though, the boys appeared to get jealous of the attention she was getting and chose to whinge far more than usual, really testing my patience. They are all at daycare today though, so I finally get a little time to re charge and I do really need it!

I'm not sure why I felt a need to make a Tova out of Liberty tana lawn in winter, but I did. This top is rather lovely though. I'm not a floral fabric person, but this print, Emilia's Flowers, is super sweet and not overly girly.
Clearly this top is not suited to the chilly weather we are enjoying in Sydney. So for today, it will be worn with a long sleeve merino top, a vibrant crochet scarf and a lovely new, charcoal bag from Valhalla Brooklyn.
If you ever have a few spare dollars and need a new leather bag, I can't recommend Valhalla Brooklyn bags enough. I LOVE them!


  1. Love your Tova liberty, it looks great! Cute with the scarf & bag too :)

  2. Please stop making me want to order the Tova pattern! It's so damn expensive. Do you really think it's worth it?

  3. Haha, I am almost finished a Tova in a very summer-weight cotton, but I am dragging the chain as I know I won't be able to wear it yet anyway.
    I would say definitely worth the $$ - only because the pattern is a great fit, and is very easy to sew, so you and up making more than one (I am on my 2nd and will make more).

  4. Another nice Tova. So sweet in the Liberty. That bag is really quite stunning in all its fabulous glory!
