5.0 out of 5 stars Fantastic book!, 12 Jan. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Gertie's New Book for Better Sewing: A Modern Guide to Couture-style Sewing Using Basic Vintage Techniques (Gertie's Sewing) (Hardcover-spiral)
As the owner of too many various sewing books (I'm addicted I think!), this really is a fabulous book. I don't normally write reviews as I'm a busy mum and obsessive sewing addict but feel this book really needs shouting about. I bought it along with a couple more sewing books with some Christmas money I'd been given.
I've been making my own clothes, bags, household items and loads of other items for many years but have lately got bored with the usual ideas, patterns etc.
This book is a such a refreshing change to the ususal dressmaking books. The information is abundant and very well written, easy to understand with fab diagrams too. And the projects (which all come with a pattern! - what a bargain!), are all gorgeous, I'm planning on making almost all of them. I really love vintage style patterns but they are expensive to buy and not as easy to follow as modern versions, but this book is full of tips on deciphering vintage patterns and constructing vintage style garments. And all of the projects are vintage style but with a modern twist which I love, and they will never date.
This is now my fave book, overtaking by far The Great British Sewing Bee which was my fave 2 wks ago!
