Stylish, modern clothing for middle aged women for every day wear.
I would most like to learn about the late 40s, early 50s.
Yes, I follow Gertie's blog and even try some of her techniques on occasion. Would love her book but haven't put enough aside to purchase it yet.
Yes, I would like to have this book in my library. I'd use the book by starting with making clothes - tops for myself - to see how it all works. Presumably, that will lead to more inspiration and who knows where it will all lead.
I'd probably start with a blouse/top. Then move onto a dress.
I've always enjoyed learning from Louise Cutting and love any opportunity to learn as much as possible to make my garment sewing better.
Metal eyelets - I have a bunch and it would be good to learn how to use them.
I've heard nothing but good things about this book. Naturally, I'd love to find out for myself if it is as good as I've been told.
I've heard nothing but good things about this book and Colette patterns so it would be nice to find out for myself. I always love to check out books that might be good recommendations for my sewing students.
Ruffles scarves for family, hand beaded mitts and scarves for sports team managers and a beautiful purse for my sister are on the list so far. I know that list will grow ...
I'd love to learn more about designing with fabric.
I have a custom dress form and I use it to play with fabrics to see how they fall, how they will look on my body, etc. The next step is to learn how to drape in a more structured way as that is one of my goals - to learn draping.
I really need pants and tops that fit - that is my spring sewing.
