Gertie Sews Jiffy Dresses is a modern take on vintage patterns, focusing on easily mastered sewing skills, minimal pieces, and fabulous design. Inspired by “jiffy” sewing patterns of the ’50s, which had simple construction yet were chic enough for fashion-conscious customers, this book inspires new and experienced sewists alike with manageable but glamorous projects. And the best part? Readers will end up with a sparkling wardrobe of easy-to-wear, fun-to-style dresses that will fill busy modern lives with retro charm.
