The night before we left for our Christmas holiday at the beach I finished my Tiramisu dress. I wore it travelling down here and wore it again on Christmas day. Here it is modelled on a post French Toast for breakfast amble.
The pattern is Tiramisu by cake patterns. It is Steph’s first commercial pattern and it is a great design.
I made the 35D bodice, 35 waist and lengthened the skirt by about 3 lines. The fit is very good, it even sits under my bust, not over. There did not seem to be enough stretch in the neckband so I shortened it and stretched it on more than directed. This was a mistake as it now pulls up too much. Live and learn!
Pockets! very useful. This pattern is just made for stripes and I love the chevron effects. The shoulder cover is just perfect for summer out and about. I used a striped cotton – elastane jersey from Spotlight and I’m happy with the quality of the fabric, which I do not say that often about Spotlight.
This dress was really perfect for the relaxed family day we had, and I was really happy to have something new to wear.
A pattern review is here.
I hope that you all have had a lovely Christmas, holiday or solstice celebration. I have certainly enjoyed being away with extended family enjoying the beautiful Victorian coast. Even if it is a bit bracing for swimming!
