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.
Here's third and final part in my tissue-fitting vlog mini-series! Now, guys, I have a favor to ask of you. I would really love to get your feedback on these videos. Maybe I'm being overly self-critical, but I don't know that I'm entirely happy with them. Basically, I worry that they're not completely clear. (Correct me if I'm wrong though!) The biggest change that I want to make is adding pictures of the pattern alterations so that you can see better what I'm doing. Obviously, that means more time and planning from me, so I need to be realistic about what I can do.
In any case, I would love to hear your feedback, dear readers! Are you satisfied customers? Or do you have some complaints to lodge?
