As part of my daily perusing of the internet I bookmark sewing patterns that I think look interesting (yes, I still bookmark - not really on board for the whole public display of Pinterest), then I wait until an online sewer/blogger makes the pattern to see what they think of it (hopefully saving myself the expense and strife of buying a pattern I won't like).
After seeing Noodlehead make a Wiksten Tova on her blog I was sold on the style. I bought a light, heather gray cotton at the Mill End store, purchased the online pattern and cut out the pieces for a size Medium. I didn't make a muslin or any adjustments to the pattern pieces, and it generally all worked out. I would say that the pattern is pretty easy to follow, includes pictures and only took a few hours to sew up. My only dislike is that the sleeves are supposed to be gathered where they meet the shoulder, but the gather is so slight that it looks like they just puckered during sewing - more like a mistake than an intentional design. I'll fix that on the next go-round.
After I made it I felt like it was kind of bland, so I added a couple of black "pearl" snaps to the placket. I also tinkered with the sleeves A LOT. I just couldn't find a length I liked so I kept rolling them up. I think I'm happy with this length.
