Tiramisu v2.0

So even though I haven't shown you photos of the first one, yet...here is my second Tiramisu! I'm really happy with it, as I've mentioned in my previous two posts, so I won't go on about it here. Instead I will show her in all it's glory. Thanks to Danika for taking the photos! I still haven't hemmed it, I meant to do that today at the Social Sewing day, but didn't get around to it - I was too busy working on my next project! It's a big one, and I'm pretty excited about it!

That's about right with me - no sooner have I finished one project than I'm onto the next one! But in fact the "new" one has been on the go since Christmas time, so it in fact was first!



Anyway, back to Tiramisu: I described the first one of this dress the other day as my Emperor's New Clothes dress - it feels like I'm naked in it in a socially acceptable and well put-together way. I feel elegant and pretty in it, but the dress is so comfy that I don't even notice it's on - it's the first thing I grab when I want to put something on to bum about the house, and yet I can dash out of the house and not feel daggy. It's so easy to wear both dressed up and down and I will probably make quite a few more of them! I plan on making some more in a drapey solid fabric. Can't wait!

  4. I bet a plain Tira would be perfect for some decorative embroidery. Around the hem, and maybe on the waistband and/or bodice. Then you'd be eveningwear ready!

  5. Hello! So nice to run into you today! Such a small world isn't it :-D
    LOVE this dress - I commend your skill of sewing with knits - something I've never delved into. What a great little dress!
