Dotty for Tiramisu

Seriously.  Any tiramisu, although I’m talking today about the Tiramisu.dotty tiramisuI used a dotty jersey from my stash, and I confess to not following directions exactly.  I didn’t have quite enough fabric, so I left off the pockets and the skirt side seams, and the sleeve and bodice facings are from a coordinating fabric from my op art tee.

tira bodiceI cut the dress during an all-day cutting session last week, and put it together yesterday between mommy-I-need-you sessions, since the kids are home from school now.  The bodice sewed up beautifully and was a perfect fit right out of the envelope.  The only tiny adjustment I made was to the length of the neckline, which I shortened by one inch per side at the bodice CF bottom, tapering back to the original seam.

tira sideThe instructions are wonderful in this pattern.  Simple, straight forward and completely understandable.  I love the method of construction, too.  It makes the entire project a simple easy dress.  Add in the lack of fussy fitting problems, and this is a real gem of a pattern.  This is my first ever pattern from anything other than Burda or the BMV group, and I am very pleasantly pleased.

  1. Love it! I preordered this pattern before it even came out but have yet to sew it! Thanks for your review and sizing info. I am making this next…for sure!

  2. Beautiful! You’ve reminded me I have one of my own I’ve been pushing to the bottom of the queue, and now I’m rethinking it, as yours is so lovely 🙂

  3. Your version of this dress is “spot” on. Love the dotty fabric, you did get a perfect fit!

    1. Yes! This is the most brilliant aspect of the design. Steph took a lot of care and test drove many versions to come up with such a perfectly fitting surplice bodice. Well worth the pattern, I say!

  4. Brilliant! The more of this dress I see the more I think I should give it a try! Love the fabric pattern & colour, great fit, & with only one tiny adjustment! Fab!

  5. Great dress! Seriously, Tiramisu is so darned flattering on every single person who’s sewn it! I wish my first indie pattern experience had gone this well!
