This is the shirtwaist dress pattern from Gertie’s Book for Better Sewing. I love the modern take on vintage styles in this publication.
The fabric is a beautiful cotton which was a Christmas gift from my parents.
The pattern is slightly more challenging than some of my other makes, but the book has clear instructions, so I encountered no problems.
