This review is from: Gertie's New Book for Better Sewing: A Modern Guide to Couture-style Sewing Using Basic Vintage Techniques (Hardcover-spiral)I pre-ordered and couldn't wait for this to arrive.
I would consider myself an experienced sewer and also cut my own patterns.
The styles in the book are good and you have good base patterns for adding your own necklines /collars etc.
This great for me as I'm inspired by the designs and don't have to start a pattern from scratch.
It would have been good to see technical drawings of each of her patterns and in some cases more photos of the finished garments.
I personally haven't learn't anything new regards to construction as there is more detail in books such as Claire Shaffers or Susan Khaljie.
The artwork and layout of the book is great.
I don't think it's for a complete novice but for somebody with some experience.
