Gertie’s Shirtwaist Dress in Linen

Hello vintage lovers! I’m back with another dress from the marvelous book “Gertie’s New Book for Better Sewing” . This shirtwaist dress in 100% retro, and I am so in love with it. I used a linen with a bit of texture in it that has been in my stash for two years now, just waiting to be turned into a shirtdress. What is more useful than a shirtdress?! nothing.

  • Shirtdresses are so pretty and practical. That saucy color you chose makes this quite a versatile dress indeed.
