#isewlation2020 : Georgia


When Liz Page closed her retail business (with the help of @minimalistmachinist, @thestoryclubpdx, @mombasics@luigiwu) she made some of her pdf patterns, without instructions, available to home sewists.  When I downloaded a few of the patterns, I donated to @indigenousliteracyfoundation to acknowledge the generosity of these ladies.


In August last year, I sewed the Georgia Top in a gorgeous linen purchased at @wollenberlin with @ute_ig (miss you Ute) in September 2017.


This is the smallest size (one size down on my measurements) with a 3/8” (1cm) forward shoulder adjustment.


My big head had a run-in with the neckline… it’s quite small… so I ended up lowering the front by 5/8” (2cm).  I also added 1 1/4” (4cm) to the tops length.  I like this length, but I’ll add more next time as I prefer a bigger hem allowance.


As this was a Covid sew, and I had no thread that was anywhere near a match, I opted to use orange thread for both the construction and the hemming.  I’m thrilled with how it looks.  I’m calling it a subtle, but fun design feature.  Bonus, the orange thread matches my tiny Blogless Anna tag.


Elizabeth Suzanne has since released this pattern as part of  the Georgia Series with a ‘pay what you can’ pricing structure.
