Gretchen "Gertie" Hirsch is a passionate home seamstress, a sought-after sewing teacher, and the creator of one of the web's most popular sewing blogs: Gertie's New Blog for Better Sewing. The blog began as a way for readers to follow Hirsch's progress as she stitched all 14 fashions from the iconic 1950s sewing bookVogue's New Book for Better Sewing(aJulie & Julia-esque experiment for the modern sewist). It quickly became a place for Hirsch to share tutorials and lively posts about sewing as it relates to fashion history, pop culture, body image, and gender. Gretchen teaches sewing in New York City and around the country, is the creator of a new line of sewing patterns from Butterick, and the author of Gertie's New Book For Better Sewing(STC Craft, Fall 2012).
These vintage-inspired tap pants will become a sleeping or lounging staple. Expert seamstress Gretchen shows you how to draft a pattern based on your own measurement for a customized fit. She shares her tips and tricks for how to sew with slinky fabric and how to add two different kinds of lace to the waist and hem. You'll finish off this boudoir essential with a darling little bow - then get ready to get cozy.
