Hello everyone! My name is Milena, and this is my first post.. I’m very exited and sooo happy to meet you all..! Been meaning to introduce myself for a while now, but wanted to wait for something special.. I think this is it..:)
Gertie (aka Gretchen Hirsch from The Blog For Better Sewing) unknowingly played a big role in my getting more serious into sewing and “out of the closet” blog-wise process. I adore her, love her blog and now the book too, so it’s only natural that my first We Sew Retro post will be dedicated to one of her patterns.
Here is my first version of the Wiggle Dress from Gertie’s Book for Better Sewing. I made this version to wear at our friend’s wedding in Paris, so it was upgraded into a Joan Holloway number (in other words I changed the neckline into a portrait one).
You are welcome to my blog for the full pattern review, more pictures and some of my thoughts on Gretchen’s book.
Nice meeting you! Hope we’ll get to know each other better now.
Have a lovely sewing time, and .. don’t forget to Vogue!
