The Georgia is a dolman sleeve tee that has a soft look and comfy fit. I wanted to add a little bit of edge to my look by adding a cut out with cross bars.
I won’t do a repeat of this look as I have other plans for the Georgia pattern, but next time I would make the cutout narrower. It’s gapes a little.
I like my edgy Georgia and its a perfect transitional piece that fits in with my Core Wardrobe.
I used an interlock knit from my stash that is just the right weight for fall and spring. The cutouts do make this cold all the time girl a little chilly, so it won’t see the rounds come winter.
Get my look:
When cutting out the pattern, I simply folded down the shoulder edges of the front and back bodice pattern pieces by 2in to create a 3in finished opening. At the neck line and just above the cuff, I added inserts to cover my shoulder and hide the cuff’s seam.
I sewed and turned a long tube to create the cross bars and spaced them 2in apart measuring up from the lower insert.
I used a 1/2in seam allowance throughout. I pressed the serged edge of the opening to the wrong side and topstiched to keep that seam allowance in place.
