We bring this post to you from the jungle of boxes, packaging folders, pattern tissue and packing minions (and by "minions", we mean us...), as that is what our warehouse (and by "warehouse", we mean Charlotte's flat...) has become. Ladies and gentlemen, guys and gals, we give you our latest, our sexiest, our brand spanking newest sewing pattern - The Georgia Dress!
The Georgia Dress is a super sexy knockout dress with fitted cups and a panelled skirt that hugs the waist and skims the hips. Variations include a choice of slinky shoulder straps or a wider, nautical style faux collar. Keep it demure with a knee length skirt, or show off those pins with the mini!
We think that the dress works best in medium weight fabrics with a little bit of stretch - cotton sateen, twill, drill, poplin, upholstery cottons, denim, courduroy, silk noil, brocade and jacqard. Because this baby was drafted to be figure hugging, we definitely recommend making a toile before cutting into any of your lovely fabric!
All that's left now is to say that we really hope you like our latest addition and we absolutely cannot wait to see your versions popping up around the interwebs!

*We will be announcing dates for the official Georgia Dress Sewalong in the not-too-distant future, but given the holiday madness that will soon be upon us, we will be scheduling the sewalong for early 2014.*
