Join My Mailing List, If You Please!

Happy Friday, readers! I've been mostly MIA around these parts lately, and I'm just sort of easing back into blogging--and back into real life. Sunday night through Wednesday was spent filming my online course, which will be offered at and will be available in about a month. The course will be called "The Perfect Fit Bombshell Dress" and it will show you step-by-step how to create a 50s style sarong dress with a molded bust, boned bodice, waist stay, and convertible straps! Think Alfred Shaheen; think Dorothy Lamour. I'm super excited about it.

There are going to be special discounts on this course for readers, so I'm compiling a mailing list to keep you updated. I will also use this mailing list to update you on my teaching schedule at The Sewing Studio here in New York, as well as on the release of any of my sewing writing that gets published. Don't worry, I won't overwhelm you with e-mails!

Please fill out the form below if you're interested in joining the mailing list. And let me know if you have any questions!


  1. I love your blog, but I'm going to stay as a blog reader and not clutter up my email inbox. I hope you will continue to keep us updated here on your blog!

  2. Great to hear from you, Gertie, I missed your posts this week. I'm so inspired by you for taking the leap to make sewing your career - hope I can do it one day too!
    Actually, it is my career, but I mean to do it from a home-based business!

  3. Signed up and super excited about it! :)

  4. I'm so in for this sarong course! I'm going away to Korea next month though - you can take these classes anytime I take it?

  5. Signed up and excited! I can't get enough Gertie!

  6. It's all about the dress form for me. I need a good one. That is my foundation. What kind do you have and where to get-it. Keep the sewing coming...



Thanks for your comments; I read each and every one! xo Gertie
