Ottobre 04-2013-14 Princess Castle

I have been camping my mailbox for this issue of the Ottobre magazine because I really wanted to make the nerdlet a mini-Tiramisu dress, and here it is.
I made a size 92 and lengthened it to 110.  I wish I could wake her up to try it on now.  It looks a little big for her, but I'm confident that it will drape well since my Tira's do.

I did make a few changes to increase the similarity.  I lengthened the waistband 1/2 inch and I turned the skirt into a full circle skirt (though Cake's Tiramisu is only 1/2 circle skirt).

I also bound it with bright red FOE from a new source, Elastic By the Yard.  They have a regular web store and also an etsy site and I bought it off their etsy site.  I love that they have so many more shades of colors than I've been able to find to date.  It's the same quality as I got from Sew Sassy Fabrics, which I have been happy with so far, but I was looking for a few more colors.

Edit:  Here is the nerdlet in the dress.
