Gertie's New Book for Better Sewing!

I am so excited to review Gertie's New Book! I love her blog and I have followed her for years. During which she has taken us step by step through Vogue's New Book for Better Sewing. Sewing fourteen wardrobe pieces from the 1950's sewing book.  Here are a few photos from just opening the book. The book is divided into two parts; skills and wardrobe. One of the skills I would like to know more about is boning and that is in the book!
White paper templates, not tissue! These will make it easier to trace.
Each size has a different  type of line to help with cutting or tracing.
One of my favorite wardrobe pieces is the A-line skirt. Just noticed that after each project she gives suggestions on how to change the pattern a little, to get a new look. Love That!
I think I am going to pick out a wardrobe piece and see what happens. 
Stay tuned for more!
