My third Tira. I couldn’t have picked a better fabric. I went to The French Seam here in town, and I saw the softest, most beautiful knit. Courtney told me that it was
cotton/silk (yeah, it’s all silk)- no wonder I loved it so much, and that high end dresses are made from this very fabric. Basically, she knows how to sell me on fabric. (psst, it doesn’t take much- just touch it)
I made a change in the pattern size and while I think the dress still fits and works for me, I’m gonna keep in mind what I did for the next one. For my navy Tira, I used the size 40D for the front and a 35 for the back- trueing the shoulders to match the front. For this Tira, I used the 35D for the front, 35 for the back. I think the 40D is a better fit for the front but I still love this dress. All my skirts have been cut 35s and this one is unhemmed.
I love this dress so much, I went to the trouble of putting on a show for you. I hope you enjoy.
“oh, hello? Why yes, of course you can come over.”
“I’ll put the coffee on. I’m thrilled I get to see you.”
“You are a doll.”
“I should bake something…”
“I wonder how this contraption works.”
“My darling friend brought me this.”
