Ponte Roma Faux ‘Georgie’ Dress

Sew Over It had just released their latest pattern, the Georgie dress and I bought the PDF version.

According to the description by Sew Over It, 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!

Unfortunately I had run out of ink and was unable to print the pattern immediately – but I was impatient to make this style of dress, what could I do?

I have a great wrap front top pattern for jersey (the Dartmouth by Cashmerette) and a half circle skirt pattern (Penny dress by Sew Over It) and decided to combine the two to make my version of the Georgie. I had some beautiful Ponte Roma print that I had bought from Abakhan when visiting my sister in North Wales and knew that this would make for a quick and easy sew.

In a little over two hours I had produced a lovely new dress, ready to wear and flaunt when joining friends for lunch the following day.

My version of a Georgie Dress

I have a great elasticated belt to wear with the dress and am now checking my stash for more jersey fabric to make yet another ‘faux Georgie’ dress.
