Thanks for checking out my first We Sew Retro post!!! For my first post, I opted for Gertie’s Butterick 5882. I put a lot of work into this one, altering the bust and adding pockets! I used a sateen from Gertie’s collection for this, and a plain black quilting cotton for the cups. I absolutely adore the vintage rose print of the Gertie fabric.

Eleanor is better at posing than I am.

Next time, I’ll lower the bust a bit more for a true shelf bust look. For a more detailed review, see my blog
