One for the dressmakers…

July 27, 2010

This is my favourite dressmaking blog – Gertie’s New Blog for Better Sewing http://www.blogforbettersewing.com/. Why do I like it? The blog was established just over a year ago to document the authors’ journey through Vogue’s New Book for Better Sewing – a 1950’s tome with fourteen patterns. Along the way there are tutorials, theoretical explorations of  feminism and dressmaking/art/vintage/clothing and the occasional guest blogger.  I am an amateur dressmaker.  I rarely get beyond skirt making and even then I leave the hems for…oh I have one I’ve left for so many years the raggety hem is a design feature! This blog hasn’t changed my sewing habits but it does entertain, educate and it makes me smile!

P.S.  For those of you waiting for details of Chrisitne Waygoods 3D Design Workshop, they’ll be posted on Friday.
