MADE: Wiksten Tova Dress in Nani Iro Brushed Cotton

Posted on May 14, 2015 by Jennifer Swartzwelder | 0 comments

Just as I’m sure Summer has made an early arrival…brrr, where’s my scarf?! And some cozy flannel, please. That’s okay, it just means I’ll get a little more wear out of this Nani Iro number before summer truly arrives.

This is the Tova in dress length, which is really more of a tunic length for me. (I’m 5’8″ ish with a long torso.) The fabric is one of the Japanese brushed cottons – soft and cozy, but not entirely like wearing winter jammies in public. Though, there are certainly days where that may seem appealing.

I did add 2″ to the sleeves to make it a little more appropriate for chilly days and I went ahead and added pockets on this one so it’s extra cozy.

Now I have my eyes peeled for the right shade of yellow linen to make a scarf, which I think will be the perfect accent for this gorgeous fabric.
