Sweetheart Sundress from Gertie’s New Book

It would be wonderfully circular if someone committed to making every pattern from Gertie’s New Book for Better Sewing in the same manner that Gertie herself tackled Vogue’s New Book for Better Sewing. I don’t think I’m the person to do that, but I did make up her Sweetheart Sundress pattern which turned out delightfully, if surprisingly saucily.

Lots more pictures on my blog, Make it til you Fake it.

Agree, would be great to see someone make up all projects from the book. Or at least, see all the projects made… group effort maybe?

Anyway, love your version of the sun dress.
