Pre-Order My Book! (And the Cover Reveal!)

The time has finally come! My book, Gertie's New Book for Better Sewing: A Modern Guide to Couture-Style Sewing Using Basic Vintage Techniques, is available for pre-order on Amazon. Here's the product description (I can't believe I have a product description!):

Gretchen “Gertie” Hirsch is a passionate home seamstress, a sought-after sewing teacher, and the creator of one of the web’s most popular sewing blogs: Gertie’s New Blog for Better Sewing. The blog began as a way for readers to follow Hirsch’s progress as she stitched all 14 fashions from the iconic 1950s sewing book Vogue’s New Book for Better Sewing (a Julie & Julia–esque experiment for the modern sewist). It quickly became a place for Hirsch to share tutorials and lively posts about sewing as it relates to fashion history, pop culture, body image, and gender. An extension of the blog, Gertie’s New Book for Better Sewing is a hardworking reference title packed with lessons on couture techniques and customization, as well as an inimitable pattern collection featuring 25 wardrobe essentials and variations inspired by vintage fashion and Gertie’s spirited, modern style.
Readers, if you've enjoyed my blog, may I humbly ask that you support the book by pre-ordering it? This is a crucial time in showing bookstores that the book will sell if they carry it.

A few fun facts:

  • Can you spot Henry on the cover? 
  • The dress I'm wearing is a brocade, short-sleeved version of the Wiggle Dress pattern (see below), which is included with the book, along with 9 other patterns. The patterns are printed on sturdy paper sheets and go from bust size 32" to 46".

  • The infamous green clogs made the cover!!!
  • I love the way the cover echoes VoNBBS, with the larger-than life sewing illustrations (done by a fabulous illustrator named Sun Young Park).
 

I think that's it for now. Of course, I will have many more things to tell you about the book between now and September 1st, when it officially releases!

  3. Hooray! I think this would be a fine addition to my collection - and a fine use of a Visa card I won at my workplace's belated holiday party.

    I noticed the green clogs right away, too - well done ;-). Congratulations!

  140. Congratulations Gertie! I'm a long time reader, but have never commented (too shy). However, I love all the beautiful clothes you sew on your blog and wanted to let any fellow Australian readers know that if they're put off by Amazon's expensive post to the Antipodes, the book is also available for pre-order on BookDepository.co.uk, which posts free worldwide and has 10% off everything at the moment.

    Can't wait to get my hands on those patterns. :)

    ReplyDelete
  141. Oh Gertie, this is so exciting - I'm so happy for you! Many congratulations, you must feel so proud. Can't wait to see the book in real life (oh and of course if you need a reviewer...!) xx

    ReplyDelete
  142. The cover looks terrific. Will you encourage your publishers to do the "search inside" feature? I love that.

    ReplyDelete
  143. How cool! Can't wait until it comes out.

    ReplyDelete
  144. Yes! I'm so excited! I can't wait until it's out. Great cover!

    Congratulations! so thrilling! of course I have pre-ordered your lovely new book. While I must admit to being terribly old school in my sewing (advanced age and all) I am truly and utterly pleased to see what you're doing! You're a valued inspiration to sew many and your work and tutorials so fabulous to newbies and "experienced" alike.

    ReplyDelete
  147. Congratulations! The cover is stunning and I can't wait to see the insides.

    ReplyDelete
  148. That is so the greatest thing ever! I love it! Congratulations!

    ReplyDelete
  149. Congrats! Book ordered, and looking forward to reading it!!

    ReplyDelete
  150. I would buy it just for the wiggle dress pattern! It seems like we have been waiting for this day for centuries! Can't wait to get my copy.

    ReplyDelete
  151. Hey Gertie! You mentioned the patterns go from bust size 32" to 46". Can you tell us more about the sizes, which bust sizes go with which waist and hip measurements? I'd like to know if I need to alter the patterns before pre-purchasing the book. Have a good day and thanks, you are lovely!

    ReplyDelete
  152. I just pre-ordered and sent an email to my best friend for her to preorder too. I have been watching and waiting for this since you first breathed a word that you were writing a book. I can't wait to get it in my hands!!! Congratulations to you!!

    ReplyDelete
  153. Hi! I'm SO EXCITED your book is available for pre-order--just did it! I am going to tell everyone in my quilting class that they should order it too as they are all thinking about getting back into garment sewing and what better way that under your tutelage! I know it will be a big hit. Can you post on Burdastyle too? That would bring in lots of folks too.

    ReplyDelete
  154. Congratulations! But september 1st?! I want it now. :)

    ReplyDelete
  155. I preordered a few weeks ago. I can't wait for the book to arrive! (Even though it means summer will be over & cold weather coming back.)

    ReplyDelete
  156. You got my "One-Click" order! Congratulations.

    ReplyDelete
  157. Just ordered mine! I can't believe I have to wait until September!!! Oh, well. September is my birthday month so it will be Happy Birthday to me.

    I love, love, love the cover!!!

    ReplyDelete
  158. Congratulations! I have been reading your blog for a long time but not commented before. I have just pre-ordered a copy from Amazon uk. Your blog has inspired me to get back into sewing again and I am really looking forward to reading your book.

    ReplyDelete
  159. I just pre-ordered it, albeit from amazon.co.uk, and I would've done so for the cover alone!(Although I am certain that the contents will live up to my expectations!) But what a fabulous cover it is! So cool that you grace the cover of your own book :-) The dress! The hair! The glasses! Them clogs! Congratulations, Gertie!

  160. If I still sewed for myself or others I would be the first on my street (after your mother) to order the book. It will be a best seller for sure if the number of orders I saw on this site are an indication of things to come. Congratulations for a job well done. Knowing two authors in one family. Almost more than I can stand.

    ReplyDelete
  161. Done and done!
    can't wait to have this hot little baby in my hands! thanks Gertie...

    ReplyDelete
  162. Congratulations!! Looking forward to getting the book.

    ReplyDelete
  163. Congratulations! Is there a browse/ peek feature that shows which patterns are included? I ask because I pre-ordered the Colette book and was a little disappointed at the pattern selection (they were nice patterns, just not my style). Also are they (similar to Collette/ the big four in that they're targeted) towards curvy women? Also, a suggestion for preventing anonymous comments (and saving people's eyes from the hideous recaptcha game of blindness) is to install disqus. It automatically filters spam and allows response/ updates across platforms. Keep up the good work.

    ReplyDelete
  164. I know I've said this before, but congratulations!!! :) I LOVE the book cover and cannot wait to get my hands on a copy eventually. It looks brilliant just from the sneak peeks and hints we've had!

    ReplyDelete
  165. That's so funny! I didn't see this post on Friday, but I pre-ordered your book that day anyway! I was surfing Amazon and, on a lark, looked up "Gertie" to see if your book was listed. It was and I pre-ordered! Can't wait to see all the patterns and great info that I'm sure will be inside.

    ReplyDelete
  166. Congratulations! I'm looking forward to it & am off to pre-order my copy right now!

    ReplyDelete
  167. I am so excited about this book, it is so pre ordered! The cover is beautiful! Congratulations to you! (is that too many exclamation marks?)

    ReplyDelete
  168. Oh, Gertie, you must be THRILLED! I'm excited, too—can't wait till this arrives in the mail! Good timing, too—just before we all find ourselves cooped up indoors for the winter. *quickly sashays over to Amazon to pre-order*

    Oh, and yes, I DID spot Henry. So cute! ;)

  170. Gertie, this is so exciting! I want to pre order your book, but before I do I'd also like to know more about the sizes to make sure the patterns would fit me. What is the smallest waist size on your patterns?

  177. Just pre-ordered mine too! So exciting, I've been wondering what the cover would look like. Hope you make it to San Francisco on the book tour. I'd love to meet you in real life and shake your hand for being such an affirming and welcoming voice in the home sewing world.
