Gertie Sews Vintage Casual: A Modern Guide to Sportswear Styles of the 1940s and 1950s by Gretchen Hirsch
We actually missed the original Gertie's New Book for Better Sewing back in 2012, which was a guide to creating your very own mid-20th century clothing and the techniques required. Like the blog that inspired it, the book was a hit - so much so that a second volume is on the way. That is Gertie Sews Vintage Casual: A Modern Guide to Sportswear Styles of the 1940s and 1950s by Gretchen Hirsch.
This volume splits into two sections - Techniques and Projects - the former showing you how to master the skills needed to create the items and the latter helping you create the designs in question for your very own mid-20th century casual wardrobe.
The 224-page book is published on 1st October 2014, but you can pre-order now for the discounted price of £14.95.
