Velvet Tiramisu Dress

Added Feb 5, 2013

The pattern is Tiramisu dress by Sewing Cake. From the description of Tiramisu Dress: “Knit knee-length dress with front surplice (mock wrap) neckline, short kimono sleeves and an easily customizable midriff section. The skirt features in-seam pockets and falls in the soft folds of a vintage half-circle skirt. The pattern includes optional stripes placement guide, cup sizing A-D and a bust alteration line.”

This pattern uses different sizing than most other pattern companies. Instead of choosing a certain set of sizes, you choose your high bust measurement, corresponding cup measurement, and waist measurement. The combined result is your own personal pattern! As for me, I ended up with size 30D with 25″ waist.

Now I would usually put the list of alterations that I’ve made on a pattern, like swayback adjustment etc. But I didn’t do anything except for shortening the waistband a bit (1.5 cm) and the hem, the dress fits me straight out of the envelope! The dress was made on my overlocker, so it was finished really quickly. I only use sewing machine to attach the pockets and finish the hem using blindstitch. The pattern was printed before lunch and I ended up with a dress in the afternoon. You can see that I’m very happy!

    I really love your Tiramisu. I made one too and found this pattern so easy to make up and fitted me so well. I like my dress so much I am about to sew another.

    Looks gorgeous on you! I love the fabric. This pattern is similar to Butterick – B5640 (http://butterick.mccall.com/b5640-products-14492.php?page_id=155). I also made it and liked it :-)
