One of Gertie’s new patterns releases through Butterick – a classic ‘wiggle’ dress. I’m not much of a wiggle but this dress was great fun to make! More on my blog http://sewbusylizzy.wordpress.com/2012/10/07/gerties-littlest-wiggle-butterick-5814/

Material Notes

Taffeta for the shell and bemsilk for the lining.

    You did such a great job with this pattern. I bought the pattern because Gertie drafted it, but have not really decided what I wanted to do with it. This is excellent inspiration!

    Fantastic! I have the pieces cut out for this pattern in a raspberry crepe-back satin, but I just haven’t gotten around to making it yet. >_<
