Gertie's New Book for Better Sewing


Oh yeah, pretty pumped right now! I already warned Luke that I'm not going to be very productive today at work haha. Did the rest of you get your books yet? I  was pretty jealous of everyone that got their copies before me. This is post is short, I'm off to read!

  3. Pre-ordered mine from Amazon, but apparently should have paid to upgrade the shipping. E-mail says it won't get to me on the West Coast until Friday :(. In good news, Amazon says it should show up at the same time as the new "Captain Underpants" book for my children, so at least we can all take some quiet time to read.

    1. I'm in CA and I got the standard shipping! Next time I think I will upgrade because it's hard seeing everyone else with the book when I want it so bad! haha

  4. Yay! :) There's a lot to read... I got started on reading, and then skipped ahead to the patterns. I can't wait to warm up with a blouse project! I can tell this book is gonna push me to learn more drafting and fitting skills though--it's gonna be good but painful ;)

    1. I'm not sure yet. I like all the patterns, but some are definitely a little too advanced for me right now. I might start off with the basic top and see how that goes. What are you going to start off with?

  13. I LOVE MINE SO MUCH. Enjoy your time reading!

  14. I'm hoping that someone in my family took my numerous hints and got this for me for my birthday. Either way I won't be able to make anything until after I have this baby (dec) so I'll just have to live vicariously through the rest of you when you start showing off all the cute things you've made.

    1. But that's perfect because you will know what you want to make and you will have time to order the most perfect fabric. Right? :)
