My new book, Gertie Sews Vintage Casual, officially releases in just 4 days! However, it does seem to be shipping early and some of you have reported receiving copies already. How exciting!
To celebrate, I thought I'd give you a little sneak peek into some pages of the book.
Illustrations are done once again by the amazing Sun Young Park. Just like in my first book, there are many illustrations of my beloved cat Henry hidden throughout. Rosie the dog also makes an appearance now!
The book was inspired by the American Look, an era of practical yet chic fashion that spoke to women's everyday lives.
The emphasis is on solid vintage-style construction, with added content on knits and pants!
And, of course, the wardrobe! Ten patterns are included on heavy duty paper.
I had modeling help! Here's the Halter Top and Flared Skirt on gorgeous Atayla.
The Sailor Blouse on lovely Dani.
And the Shift Dress on my adorable friend Allyson.
Here's the patterns and their envelope, which bound into the spiral spine.
Look out for lots more info on the book. I'll be showcasing the patterns and garments, as well as doing a giveaway. A big thanks to everyone involved in the book!
