I’m back with another sweetheart sundress from Gertie’s New Book for Better Sewing! This time it’s the tiki variation I made from some Marc Jacobs flowered cotton from my stash. This fabric was meant to be a tiki dress! I did another shirred back, because I’m obsessed now, and I draped a faux sarong piece that goes on top of the pencil skirt. I LOVE IT!

I have another finished project from Gertie’s Book for Better Sewing, it’s the sweetheart sundress made up in this adorable umbrella print cotton. I also did a shirred back, a vintage detail that I am now obsessed with, it gives the bodice such a snug feeling. I also added one of my favorite things Ric Rac, two rows of it at the hem. It’s a navy and white striped Ric Rac, what could be better?

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.

Isn’t this new reprint from Simplicity the BEST?! I love the shape, and it has french darts and one piece facings! It was a dream to put together, I had a super cute dress in a matter of hours. I used a cotton/lycra blend in this fantastic coral color, with a pique collar and covered buttons. I made view A, but I’m already dreaming of a view B version for myself!
