Gertie's New Book for Better Sewing

A Modern Guide to Couture-Style Sewing Using Basic Vintage Techniques

Gretchen Hirsch


Gertie's New Book for Better Sewing is packed with illustrated lessons on fine sewing and customization techniques.

The inimitable pattern collection features 25 vintage-inspired but timeless wardrobe essentials from a sundress to a slinky sheath to a tailored suit. White paper templates are include to make it easier to trace.

The styles are all rocked out with the tattoo-clad Gertie as the model. If you love a retro pattern, then this book is the one for you.

I personally love the finishing details on well-made garments and found this book to be a fantastic resource for adding techniques to my repertoire.
