Hi again guys! I feel a bit spammy for the two posts within two days – sorry!
Here’s my version of Gertie’s 1950’s-inspired Sundress, in an Alexander Henry quilter’s cotton (I think its called ‘Tattoo’). I know her pattern’s arn’t strictly vintage, but the styling is pretty close. I’ve made four of her design so far and feel like i’m sewing my way through her book.
I love this pattern! Its super easy to sew once you’ve gotten the fit right (like all of her patterns). It also only took 3m of fabric!
I made a couple of changes – tweaking the fit of the bodice and adding in-seam pockets (complete details on the blog). If you’ve been contemplating making this one go for it, it looks much better in real life than in her book!
