Wearing my pattern #b6412 tonight! This is not a demure neckline, but I think Marilyn would approve. #patternsbygertie #butterick @mccallpatterncompany #ootdsocialclub #ootd

Tackling the most ridiculous dress that I will have ever made to this point. I love finding sheets and curtains at thrift stores and giving them new life... in my closet. Plus it’s way cheaper than going to the fabric store!

If there was ever a dress made for twirling, I'd say this is it....especially when the back looks like this one! β€οΈπŸ‘—β€οΈ This #DIY beauty - my first make of 2018 - is now up on the #blog (link in bio). I made this dress using @mccallpatterncompany Butterick #6094 by @gertie18 and a jacquard fabric. 2018 is off to a good start! #vintagesewing #vintage #vintagestyle #patternsbygertie #diyfashion #diyfashionblogger #diyfashionblog #diystyleblogger #diystyle #diystyleblog #memade #imadethis #handmadewardrobe #sewing

My #b6453! Finally finished and I love it! Here it is at home and in the wild. It took me a while to get the fit right but I'm so happy with how it turned out ❀️

I have the fabric all picked out for the next one! #patternsbygertie #b6453sewalong #gertie #memade

Started working on my very first Gertie pattern, the super popular B6453. I’m nervous, borderline overwhelmed, confident, hopeful and excited all rolled into one! πŸ‘— #kittyassistant #cat #kitty #sewingroom #butterickpatterns #b6453 #butterick6453 #patternsbygertie #atx #gertiedress

First make of the year about to commence, b6285 Gertie wrap top. I have cut out the pattern and the fabric. And sewn the Taylor tacks. All ready to get started. The instructions are a little complicated at first glance but I’m sure I’ll pick it up. Wonderful bottle green poly jersey from @minervacrafts . I hope I’m not being too ambitious with the fabric and my skill level, as it is very stretchy and prone to coming out is shape. Should I overlock? I have no idea. Wish me luck! #butterick #b6285 #gertiehirsch #patternsbygertie #wraptop #sewing #handmade #minervacrafts #jerseyfabric

Here’s something different...pants! I made these out of a stretch denim and used the cigarette pants pattern from Gertie Sews Vintage Casual. I made these several years ago and know I made adjustments for my booty πŸ‘. Looking at the photos I see that I need a little more rise on the center front, but I’m baffled by the back calf area (see the second picture). How do I fix that bunching?! 😣 I know the marked pattern knee was wayyyy below my actual knee...would shortening the pants above the knee help? Pants are tricky...

Project update! Making a toile to check sizing. I’m undecided about the sleeves though, any suggestions from my fellow sewers? #gertiesultimatedressbook #patternsbygertie #princessseams #pleats #sewersofinstagram #sewing #sewingproject #sewsewsew #bluedress #suggestions #sleevesuggestionsneeded #whatkindofsleevedoineed

I LOVE IT!!! You won’t see it on my body because πŸ”₯. It fits *very* nicely! I used a 16C cup and graded the back piece out to an 18 below the waist. Mods for next time: add 3/4” to CF of cups grading to nothing at the side seam. My horizontal lace is coming up to a quite dramatic point in the center. Add a small wedge in back for the butt. About 5/8”. The bra straps are a bit stiff compared to the fabric but feels so secure. That was a fun palette cleanser!! #butterick6031 #b6031 #patternsbygertie #sewing #isew #imakemyownclothes

I am low-key obsessed with this wrap top. I love that I can throw it over a dress that is lower cut to make it work appropriate!

#justsewjan day 9, All That Glitters. This is my In the Mood for Love inspired dress made out of a beautiful quilting cotton. The cotton has a deep blue wave pattern with some gold lines in it, that made think of the line "not all that glitters is gold"
The pattern is from Patterns by Gertie

A note for my #makenine2018
I don't usually do resolutions, but this year I decided to have a theme: Moving On. While this means different things for different parts of my life, for sewing, it means to stop being stuck - stuck in my skillset, feeling stuck when I encounter problems, stuck in a specific style.

While my list is aspirational (I don't want to set myself up for failure if I don't do it all) there's a few themes here that will help me "Move On". 1. @decades_of_style Birdcage dress - a unique pattern to help me "Move On" from the Big 4
2. This is inspired by an Anthro Dress #Simplicity8550 I think feeling inspired by expensive rtw will motivate me toward my theme. (Slide 2)
3. I want to Move On and away from cotton dresses. An excellent reproducible blouse like #v8772 helps.
4. A shirtdress like #m6696 (not part of the theme, just like it πŸ€—)
5. #patternsbygertie #B6380 (see note 4) in a surprise rayon
6. #mccalls #7724 - see notes 2 & 3, plus I LOVE how deconstructive it is (slide 3)
7. See note 2, except my inspiration is a $2000 Oscar de la Renta dress. I included a swatch of similar & pretty jacquard fabric for #v9100 (slide 4)
8. I want to troubleshoot fitting concerns better, "Move on", and #b6453 is a great place to start
9. #m7439 see note 3 but for skirts.
