Excellent I love Tiramisu, the cake too!  May 11, 2013

I love the visual of the pattern instructions ; so clear and simple. I still wish pattern instructions in general would come on Letter sized paper (I have a small desk to sew!), but those were the best I used so far (I had done only patterns from the big 4 before...)

Ingenious way to choose you size ; by measurements (no arbitrary numbers here!), cup size and joining the dots for the midriff.

Excellent I love my Tira!  December 11, 2012

You know how when you get a new pattern out, the first thing you have to do is make like 42 different alterations to make it fit you? Not with this pattern!! The bodice is sized by both upper bust and cup size, and you can mix and match skirt sizes to get a perfect fit, right out of the envelope! The instructions are easy to understand and the illustrations are large and clear. I can't recommend this pattern enough.
