Gertie’s New Book for Better Sewing Dior New Look skirt

My first pattern from Gertie’s book and I love it.  A six gored skirt which makes your waist look tiny.  Easy to wear without a petticoat (and probably the first vintage make I feel I can wear for work)  or dressed up and more vintage with a full fluffy petticoat.  Although its a straightforward pattern and shouldn’t cause too much difficulty you can read about my rather disastrous journey  on my blog!
