Another student of Gertie’s Sew Retro class on Craftsy.

Worked all the details outlined in the class, including the removable halter strap.

Material Notes

Japanese cotton print for the outside, lined and interlined with cotton. Spiral steel boning and lightly padded cups for structure, along with all the other little details Gertie walks us through.

    Great job! The fit is amazing. Mine has been sitting unfinished for about 5 months – maybe it’s time to finish!
