The Portrait Blouse, from “Gertie’s New Book for Better Sewing”

Gertie’s New Book for Better Sewing is a fun new pattern book, featuring sewing patterns that embody author Gretchen Hirsch’s fresh take on vintage style. In the book, there are 25 lovely wardrobe essentials, and I was lucky enough to be able to pick one out to share with you all! I chose The Portrait Blouse because it’s a classic and many body shapes look good in this cut. If you end up using this pattern, I’d love to see pics of the finished top. Our own Haley Pierson-Cox actually made this top in green polka dots. Adorable!
