Georgia Goes To Hawaii

Here’s my first Georgia Dress by By Hand London. I made this in a light cotton blend with the adjustments mentioned here. And in case you were wondering, yes the adjustments worked.

I made this dress as part of the Monthly Stitch‘s March Challenge. This month you readers got to tell me what to make and you picked the Georgia in black. Because this dress is so fitted I wanted to make a toile to test out the sizing. I sewed it up in a US 12 and I was pretty much bang on. I just did my version of a FBA and resewed the bodice et voila! On Friday I’ll post the final version.

So why are these photos in monochrome? No I’m not trying to get arty! Lighting was a mare. Have you made the Georgia Dress yet?

  1. I had the same problem with my Georgia, too short at the bust, but I didn’t want to do a regular FBA as I really didn’t need it and your version looks so great I might follow your modified FBA. thanks for sharing and you look gorgeous in that dress 😉


    1. Yes well just adding length was the most logical way for me to adjust the pattern. I did have a strange situation where I ended up taking in about 1cm under my arms though… but there you go! I’m still coming to grips with pattern alteration 🙂
