Why would you wear hardly any clothes in the middle of winter?

Why, oh why indeed? Because you have just finished your Georgia and can’t bear to take it off after the last fitting, that’s why!

I kinda cheated ever so slightly in the sewalong – in as much as rather than finding the right size and fabric, I found the right size and fabric as the sewalong indicated, made two bodice muslin, finished the bodice and skirt yesterday and put both together today – so apart from the hem and a little bit of handstitching at the lining seam of the bodice I’m done. yeah, sewalongs might not be for me and my levels of patience. After all the blog is called said & done, not said & patience 😉 .

But  seriously, drop everything and go and get that pattern, if you have not done so already! I don’t think you are going to get another pattern where you spend so little time and get such a great result – Georgia rules! I have always been wary of very bust-hugging dresses because they often make my small bust look even smaller and I look a bit out of proportion. Not so with the Georgia – all the curves are in the right place and grading out over two sizes between bust and hip was no problem at all. I really can’t recommend this pattern more!

So I just have to figure out a way of either raising the temperature by about 25 degrees so that it becomes acceptable to wear a LBD in February – or I have to find a way of taking the Georgia off and changing back into my winter clothes. One or the other – which would you recommend?

PS: There will be pictures – as soon I don’t look quite as frozen 😉

      You are gonna laugh at this, but you know I have a slight sewing crush on you (in the best possible taste of course!) and when I looked at myself in the mirror in the dress, my first thought was “oh, this looks almost as good as Lizzie’s” Go figure!

      I’m working on hiding the “half thawed chicken from the freezer aisle” look.
