I'm a sewing enthusiast in Beacon, New York, with a love of all things retro. This site is all about tutorials, tips, inspiration, and lots of spirited discussion about sewing as it relates to fashion history, pop culture, body image, and gender. My first book, Gertie's New Book for Better Sewing, is now out from STC Craft/Melanie Falick Books! Also look for my line "Patterns by Gertie" from Butterick.
As requested, here's my method for hemming the lining on my coat. Do let me know if you have any questions! P.S. My idea that I would get the buttonholes done today was pure fantasy . . . I'm shooting for Monday instead!
