I finished the franken-Tiramisu dress awhile back and was never able to get any satisfying photos, but I am just posting these anyway. I might never get around to taking any more photos!! Cabin fever is really setting in now...we have at least 3 feet of snow covering our yard still, no joke!

Part 1 of this post is here if you want to see the progress. I began with a Tiramisu dress, and didn't like the bodice, so I cut it in two and attached Jalie 2449 as the bodice.
I'm happier with the dress now. The best part about it is how it feels like pajamas. I really didn't have any long sleeved knit dresses in my wardrobe, and they are very cozy for winter (or a winter which never ends). The only thing that bothers me is the pockets. This is a real heavy/thick interlock knit ($1 a yard!) and the pockets add a bunch of bulk at the hips I'm not crazy about.
In other news, my sewing studio in now complete! I don't know how I fit 4 machines into my little space, but I have an embroidery machine now. I've been playing around with it a bit and I think it will be such fun to embellish some of my sewing projects with. Here is one of my first test samples:
