Oh my God, oh my God!

Excuse the crazy excitement going on in this corner of the blogosphere, BUT the one and only Gertie of "Gertie's blog for better sewing" AND the soon-to-be-sitting-in-my-library-of-sacred-sewing-books "Gertie's book for better sewing" has released not one, but two patterns with Butterick! Ahhhh!!!! So excited! I am for sure buying the coat pattern, but I can't wait to see all of our fellow seekers tale a crack at the dress pattern! In case you couldn't tell, I am very excited!

Also, I officially pulled myself out of my self wallowing and decided that I needed a quick and easy project to boost my morale :) I just finished tracing out vogue 8663, and hopefully I can whip one up for this weekend.


  1. I love the new Gertie patterns too. It is great to see Gertie really emerging as a powerhouse in the sewing world. I love her style. I have pre-ordered the book and expect it asap next the Gertie patterns will have to wait until next month...

  2. My book was just delivered and it sitting at home, waiting for me... torture! I ordered her patterns yesterday - I cannot wait to make up the dress. It's stunning! I love that she is becoming more popular and getting her name out there, because I am such a fan of everything she makes and designs.
