I made the George and Ginger Drama Dress! It has a ton of options. There are four different necklines available as well as a slim or swing dress option. The necklines include a peter pan collar, basic neck band, bow neckband, and a keyhole front (which is what I did). Sleeves include every length, and the dress also has optional inseam pockets, which I did add!
I picked up some purple cotton spandex ribbed knit from Knitpop and thought it would be perfect for this dress. The keyhole and neck binding were done with a matching purple DBP because when I pulled hard on the ribbed knit, it stretched out and did not recover (go back to the original size). For the pockets, I used some purple scraps made of rayon spandex. This is the slim skirt version, and you can probably see from the pictures, that while it’s not a swing dress, it’s still has some positive ease in the hips (i.e., it’s not a wiggle!). I did add one inch to the length of the dress since it’s for winter and I wanted to make sure it covered down to the top of my knee. I am 5’5″, which is really close to the drafted height of 5’6″, so without alterations, the hem would sit an inch or 2 higher.
The dress is really comfortable and I like that while the neckband is very modest for me, it still looks a little bit fancy.
|My 4 year old took this picture, and while my head is slightly decapitated, I think it shows the dress well, so here it stays.|
