Gretchen of Gertie’s New Blog for Better Sewing has a new Craftsy course! It is called Sew Retro: The Starlet Suit Jacket. Of course, it’s on sale for 50% off. So, of course, I bought one. I already bought her Bombshell Dress class and though I have yet to make my dress, I did watch the class all the way through. I’m quite impressed by Gretchen’s teaching style. She is very likeable and has a contagious enthusiasm about sewing clothes and vintage garments. She also makes advanced techniques like boning seem incredibly easy and, dare I say it, fun.
Yes, obviously I’m justifying yet another Craftsy sewing class purchase. At this point, I think I’ve purchased the equivalent of an entire college semester’s worth of sewing classes! I shall be well versed in couture construction techniques by the time I’ve done them all. And I’ll be oh, so stylishly attired too in my custom-fitting pants, dresses, and suit. What a lovely thought!
