Tiramisu sew-a-long progress report

I'm so enjoying making my second Tiramisu. I'm taking my time and it's paid off in a big way. I've pressed every seam down perfectly and finished them all with a pretty triple zigzag. My stripes are perfectly lined up and my top stitching is pretty good for a first attempt. I'm not far off finished- should be done tomorrow bar the hem. I wanted to finish it tonight but I ran out of thread. I added decorative under stitching to my pockets and used too much thread on that. Whoops. Oh well, I love the pattern, so have no regrets!
I just want to be wearing this dress already.

  2. It looks lovely! It's worth adding those little details as they make a huge difference to your enjoyment of the dress. Every time you use your pockets you'll love the stitching!

    1. Yeah, I always love a project more when I've been careful with the details...hard to remember that when the urge to steam ahead overwhelms me though!
