  1. Georgia Dress

    I made the skinny strap and longer skirt variation of the By Hand London Georgia dress, from a stretch cotton. I cut a size 6 at the bust, grading to an 8 at the waist and a 10 at the hips. I shortened the straps a little. To fit the dress to my body, I took it in by 5cm at each side seam from the waist to the hem, and took 2cm off the back seams at the waist to account for my sway back. I was also able to eliminate the zip due to the stretchy fabric I was using. The dress was quite simple to put together. The only part I struggled with was getting a neat join between the bust and the triangular section of the bodice that meets it. I settled on a less than perfect finish, but due to the pattern of my fabric you can’t really tell! Love this dress and would make it again.

  2. Georgia Dress

    Thumblenina

    I made the version with wide straps and it was super straightforward! Made it out of satin with a sequin overlay across the bust, making a straight size 10 (UK) which was a pretty great fit, except perhaps a little roomy under the arms to begin with. Amazingly a great length and perfectly fitting straps for a short person (5’2)! Can’t wait to make up the longer version with narrow straps… Full details on my blog, link in profile 🙂

  3. Georgia Dress

    suziecreates

    I made the Georgia dress out of a stretchy cotton satin that has a great body to it. Since I´m between sizes I graded from a size 2 at the bust to a 4 at the waist an hips. I fitted perfectly, except for the top. I made 3 muslins for the bodice, none did fit right. So I gave up, inserted a piece of elastic at the neckline, so it would lie flat. I´m happy that it turned out wearable, because I love the design of the pattern!
