Some of us in the Spoonflower office are very into pretty dresses--especially the vintage kind--so when we realized this morning that Gertie's New Book for Better Sewing, the much anticipated title from talented sewist Gretchen Hirsch and author of Gertie's New Blog for Better Sewing, had finally been released for sale, we snapped up a couple of copies quick. One copy will live on the Spoonflower sewing library shelf (when we aren't fighting over who gets to borrow it), but one copy is for one of you to win during this week's giveaway! I haven't laid eyes on a real book yet but, having been helped with a couple of dress projects by Gertie herself at a Heather Ross sewing workshop earlier this year, I'm confident that her book will be as helpful and charming as Gertie herself. I hope you all are as excited about this book as I am!
To enter this week's giveaway for a copy of Gertie's new book, just leave your comment below or on the corresponding Facebook post. Do include your Spoonflower screen name so that we can find you easily if you're our winner, and tell us all about your favorite dress style if you're so inclined. Entries will close next Tuesday, 9/11 and we'll announce a winner on 9/12. While you're waiting to find out if you've won the book, you may want to pick up one of Gertie's new Butterick sewing patterns, a gorgeous cocktail dress and double-breasted coat. Good luck, vintage style mavens!
Last week we gave away the winner's choice of a lovely Sewaholic sewing pattern and four yards of Spoonflower fabric to make it up in, and the winner was Danica King in Seattle. Congratulations, Danica!
