Oh. My. God. Stitching Heaven,
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 (Hardcover-spiral)
I bought this book after becoming addicted to Gertie's blog (blogforbettersewing). She is amazing - sassy, approachable, listenable, clever and an amazing stitcher and designer. Quite rightly, based on the success of her blog and her growing abilities, she has produced this book which, oh my good, comes with patterns!!!!
I am not an expert stitcher but can hold my own so I was absolutely delighted with this book. It is good on the basics and fabulous on the further intricacies of stitching couture like items. Don't be afraid - buy the book and dive in. You won't be left high and dry and will be sewing amazing clothes in no time.
Extra fabulous news - she is currently working on a new book of more casual designs. I think I might need a lie down ... I'm so excited.
