Well, I try to always try out a project from these books I share. I made The Pencil Skirt with this fabric I had on hand. It was an easier piece to whip up and I like how it came out. Gertie does a great job explaining everything, because let me tell, sewing things vintage style takes a little more labor. It’s more tailored and more detailed generally. But, it really makes for such well built pieces that look good on the outside AND the inside. Here are a few pictures of some of the 25 vintage inspired pieces that patterns and instructions are provided for:
|The Sultry Sheath|
|The Shirtwaist Dress|
|The Brocade Dress|
Another thing I like about the book are the amazing illustrations. It truly is a great book filled with all sort of information on sewing vintage style clothes. I can’t wait to give some of the other clothes a try! You can find the book online here.
