Cake’s Tiramisu dress is not new to me or to most of you but I did make some changes to my pattern before I cut out this awesome cherry knit from Nature’s Fabrics. As of this posting, they’re sold out but they do have the same cherry print on a rib- which is not the jersey you see in the pics.
Cutting and Alterations:
- I cut the 35D for the front and back tho I think I could use a very small short waist tuck in the back on the midriff but it’s so minimal I’m not fixing it right now.
- Forward shoulder of 1/2″, tapered it from the new spot to the original shoulder/sleeve after about 2″.
- Cut the midriff 32″ size and then did a curve to accentuate my waist.
- No pockets, No FBA, serged hem.
I’m loving this dress! I’m sure you can’t tell by all the photos. And since I was thinking of cherry tiramisu, I found a pic of this yummy treat with a recipe for all of you who can enjoy sweets.
This is my 5th Tiramisu make if you count my Peplum Puppy but I’m not counting my Tiramisu skirt hack, aka the Tira culottes. I’m loving this pattern all over again. It goes together so easily. I still did the mid fit check and hung it over two night to let the skirt drop which it really didn’t that much. We’ll see how it hangs over time.
Anyone want some of this cherry tiramisu cake?
