The Georgie Dress
Description: The Georgie Dress is a chic, everyday knit dress that is as comfy to wear as it is stylish. With a fit and flare style, it’s flattering on so many figures and makes a gorgeous outfit all year round. Whether you’re wearing it to the office, whilst out and about at the weekend, or simply having a cosy day at home, you’re guaranteed to look put-together in Georgie. It’s an outfit in one!
Simple and elegant with a lovely finish, the Georgie Dress features a wrap over bodice which pleats into the side seams for shaping. The top is lined for a beautifully clean finish, as well as for extra comfort and support. Full-length set in sleeves can be cut at any point depending on your preference. When it comes to skirts, there are two variations: a 3/4 circle skirt designed to be sewn in heavier knits such as ponte di Roma, and a gathered skirt designed to be sewn in lighter jerseys. Elastic at the waist and along the neckline edges ensures the dress stays snug and close-fitting to the body, with no gaping! Add optional belt loops too.

Suggested fabric: The Georgie Dress is designed to be sewn in knits, and you have two options when it comes to fabric weights. We recommend sewing version 1 in a stable knit such as ponte di Roma or similar medium weight knit. For version 2, we recommend using something lighter in weight, such as a viscose, bamboo, tencel or lyocell jersey, as a heavier fabric will make the gathers quite bulky. Depending on the weight, both version 1 and 2 could be made in a stretch velvet. Both dresses feature a lined bodice, and for this we suggest using viscose jersey.
