Sewing Tip: Make a muslin to get a precise fit in the upper bodice section before working with the fashion fabric.

This review was originally featured in Threads #179 (June/July 2015).

By Hand London: Georgia Dress

This dress has curved front and back empire-waist seams, a lined, two-piece bust-cup style bodice, front and back princess seams, and an invisible side-seam zipper. Two strap variations include: a 3-3⁄4-inch-wide strap that is sewn into the empire-waist seam and a skinny strap that measures 1-1⁄2 inches at the attachment points and tapers to 3⁄4 inch at shoulder level. One length option ends at the mid-thigh, while the other falls to the knee. This pattern comes in a PDF format and is printed on 20 sheets of letter-size paper. The directions are detailed and show exactly how to print and assemble the pattern pieces. Ideal fabrics include chambray, crepe-back satin, or cotton sateen.

(Sized 2-16 for busts 32-45 in. and hips 35-48 in.)

Sewing Tip: Make a muslin to get a precise fit in the upper bodice section before working with the fashion fabric.

    This is a very pretty summer dress. I love that it is available in pdf and goes up to larger sizes.

    The dress looks amazing. So summery! I will definitely use the pdf file to recreate it for myself for the next summer.
