(Picture Taken From Gertie's New Blog for Better Sewing)Vintage Sewist Rejoice!!!
So yesterday the mail carrier brought me my brand new copy of Gertie's New Book for Better Sewing. Now I have lots of sewing books (I am kind of like having books) lots my sewing books are project based. I have to say that I don't think any of them can compare to Gretchen Hirsch book. It starts with lots of good instructions and how to's for the vintage sewist. Normally in sewing project books I might like to make 1/3 or less of the projects included. Not so with Gretchen's book I can see myself making 95% of the projects and I the book looks like it gives fabulous how to on the techniques needed not just for these projects but for any vintage sewing projects. I just can't tell you how excited I am about this book and its 25 vintage inspired patterns. I have a project I have to finish first and I am starting back at work on Monday (my summer is done, boo hoo) but I plan to start working on a pin tucked a line skirt soon as I can manage.
On top of that Today she posted on her blog (if you are not a subscriber you really need to go take a look here) that she has designed a new line of patterns for Butterick Pattern Company and they put her on the cover!!! All I can say is congratulations Gretchen on putting out your book, your patterns, and making the cover of Butterick catalog.
