Swiss dot Georgia twirl dress

Better get a-sewin’.

Swiss dot Georgia twirl dress

I made Shauna’s Georgia Twirl dress ย and I am in love. I always love me a good circle skirt, yet I always forget they are an option with dresses!

I want to mention that this pattern is var var easy to adjust. The Sadester is quite small but long. So I made the 4T bodice, and when I cut the skirt out, just cut the size 6 lengths, leaving the 4T waist alone. Worked like a charm!

I got this lovely pink swiss dot from Hancock Fabrics, the underskirt and lining is just some white quilting cotton.

and oh yeah…Sadie got her hairs cut! What do you think? She was squirmy so it needs a few touch ups but it’s so much easier to comb through. Although the Wet Brush really does wonders. (affiliate link)

I adore the criss cross affect you get with the bodice-and it’s SO so easy. Plus it ends up so nicely lined with the double skirt.

I added the flutter sleeves from Rae’s Geranium dress pattern for some modesty. (we’re talking about that a lot lately ๐Ÿ™‚

I love the V-neck in back-so feminine and darn cute. I used some white flower buttons I got…somewhere, sometime.

I would suggest adding some interfacing on both sides of the back pieces where the buttons and buttonholes go. It needed it with my thin material. oh well.

She ADORES the spinnability (it’s a word) and again, makes me wonder why I don’t do circle skirts more often!

This one will definitely get made again!

oh yes, the gold leather bow is made with the Oliver and S bow pattern!


  1. Love the dress. It’s every girl’s dream to be able to twirl like that! Did you get Sadie’s hair cut? It looks cute. You had mentioned that you were going to get that done.

  2. Absolutely love it! I think my favorite part is the v back with buttons.

  3. WOW!! that is such a beautiful dress!! I really really love it! I think I may need to sew some for my girls

  4. just a perfect dress for spring! i always like a little cap sleeve to protect against sunburn.

  5. So pretty! The simple pink and white is gorgeous and springy. I love the gold shoes you paired it with too =) I have this pattern and can’t wait to make it up for summer!

  6. That is beautiful! I love the twirl, and the fabric choice is impeccable. =) A friend gave me some lavender Swiss dot that I’m saving for the perfect project… now I know that it needs a double layered circle skirt. =)

  7. Beautiful – I love the pink fabric for Easter. That last picture of Sadie is stunning!

    Oh my giddy aunt, this is ad-or-a-ble! So pretty and that twirl…well I’m going to have to make one for my little pink twirl dress loving girly!

  9. Just lovely!! I’ve been wanting to sew this pattern for quite some time and you make it look so simple. Great job Jess! The flutter sleeve is just darling btw.

  10. Such a pretty dress! Perfect for Easter!

  11. oh this dress is just yummy!! I love the idea to attach the fluttery sleeves from the Geranium pattern. How are the edges of those finished? I can’t quite tell… I love that they look slightly unfinished. Did you just straight stitch and trim closely to your stitching so it can unravel a teeny bit?
