Buzzy Bee!

Inspired by the Great British Sewing Bee, I've been cracking on with making my Wiksten Tova top...

So far so good.  Not perfect, but OK.  Just need to do the other sleeve and the collar and then I'm done.

I did make some adjustments to the shoulder seem so that the front insert sat better on my chest.  I stitched an 1 1/4'' from the fabric edge at the neck down to 3/4'' from the edge at the sleeve and it seems to sit much better.  This didn't cause a problem with the sleeve as that's gathered anyway, but I will need to adjust the back and front inserts when I do the collar.
