Re: Book Giveaway: "Gertie's New Book for Better Sewing"

I haven't had the opportunity to sew any vintage outfits, however, whenever I see any pattern from the 50's or earlier I must purchase it. And I inherited several fancy dresses that my mother sewed in the late 50's and early 60's that I love to inspect the inside of. Not sure I can ever measure up to her skills!

Re: Book Giveaway: The Vintage Pattern Selector

Oooh, that's a toss up between Belle Epoque and the 50's. But really any time period has its place in my heart, for all the variety.

Re: BOOK GIVEAWAY: "All Sewn Up"

Am definitely planning on making some toiletry bags for my daughters. They are getting old enough to go for sleepovers and need pretty bags for their toothbrushes, etc. And maybe pajamas if I get really organized.

Re: BOOK GIVEAWAY: The Colette Sewing Handbook

I have started a collection of handbooks on sewing. I've already received the Burda Style book. Next on my list is Colette and Gertie's.

Re: DVD GIVEAWAY: Threads Magazine Archive, 1985-2011

Oh, my groaning bookshelves would be so grateful! Sometimes I spend more time looking for an article than I do sewing. Oh, please I would give my eye teeth for this DVD.

Re: Book Giveaway: Seventeenth-Century Women's Dress Patterns

Wow, what a fabulous book. I've become very interested in these types of historical books. What a great way to incorporate some original couture elements into today's sewing.

Re: Book Giveaway: "Horrockses Fashions: Off-the-Peg Style in the '40s and '50s"

I have never heard of Horrockses. Wow, my sewing education is so lacking. What a wonderful way to learn about the company, and that era of fashion.
