Georgia Twirl Top/Dress is Momo's favorite right now. She just cannot have enough circle skirts. I have sewn two Georgia Dresses so far and Momo loves them. This time I decided to make the tunic top version with color block and two-layer skirt.
After making the previous two Georgia dresses, I learned the bodice needed some adjustments for my skinny girl. I cut the size 3T with 5T length, and overlapped the sides more than the pattern indicates. I think I got the better bodice fit this time.
The skirt length is also 5T top length. It is a little too long for Momo to wear it as a top, it looks more like a short dress on her. I should have cut the skirt shorter.
The pattern has the suggested line for the color block. I moved the line a little higher, to show more of the pretty dot print.
I finished with 2 large buttons in the back. Somehow I had hard time making the button holes. I was using the automatic button hole settings, and I could make them on the test scraps, but somehow my sewing machine would stop when trying to make it on this top. After having 5 failures, I manually made the button hole using zigzag stitch. I do not know what happened there.
I just love watching my little girl spin. Soon she will grow and be "too cool" to spin like this. I hope you are not tired of looking at the twirly dresses, because this will not be our last...
