The Lamour Dress: now rockabilly weekend tested and approved! I brought three of these frocks with me and used all three halter variations: strapless, traditional, and cross-cross. Bonus: the full skirt is perfect for twirling the night away on the dance floor. Pattern available on my website, and a comprehensive online sewing course is available at the link in my bio. Cup sizes B-DD, choose printed or pdf versions. #rockabillysewing #charmpatterns #charmpatternsbygertie #lamourdress #charmschool

Thank you @bexthefemme and her partner @jakkdapper for letting me be their third wheel for much of this weekend! So good to catch up with dear Aussie friends. Bex is wearing a vintage cocktail dress and I’m wearing my #lamourdress from #charmpatterns. #vlv21 #1950sfashion #charmpatternsbygertie

What an absolute delight spending the afternoon with @gertie18 and meeting talented and inspiring women at a scrumptious high tea overlooking Las Vegas. Thank you so much for this wonderful event, @gertie18. Definitely one of my favorite times at Viva!!! #vlv #vlv21 #charmpatterns #charmpatternsbygertie

Finished! I have a new #2018topsthatpop for my closet. I wasn't sure about a peasant top, but trust everything @gertie18 does, and turns out I love this blouse! Thanks @fayedoll for letting me play along. Not sure I'll get a 2nd top before the end of #TopsThatPop2018 but we'll see 🤞

Today’s look for the car show and Neon Museum! Wearing my black eyelet #lamourdress from #charmpatterns. You can wear the Lamour Dress strapless by knotting the halter ties at your lower back.

So here is my Rita blouse so far 😊 I just can't decide if I should leave the sleeves like that and maybe even add some pompoms or add elastic 🤔 what do you think?

Fabric update from my Airbnb bathroom! I’m pleased to report that I have two big fabric releases coming up, with worldwide availability/shipping! First, I have a new line with @Spotlightstores (this border print pictured is one of them). It will be available as usual in their retail locations (AU/NZ/Singapore) starting now. But I will also be selling a limited quantity on my website with worldwide shipping! Look for those in early May.
Second! I’m collaborating with @michaelmillerfabrics for a brand new line. It is available *now* for retailers to order, and will be shipping in August. Let your local store know that you are interested in the Charming by Gertie line. I will also be selling this on my website with worldwide shipping.
Hurrah, fabric for everyone! #gertiebygretchenhirschfabric #sneakpeak #charmingbygertie

Cette #ritablouse est une revenante. 👻 Suite à un problème de fermeture éclair, elle s'est retrouvée TROUÉE (voir photo 2) à deux endroits. 😱 J'ai bien failli jeter l'éponge, puis j'ai finalement remplacé la fermeture, réparé les trous et ouf, la voilà sauvée!
Bon, par contre elle est un peu trop ajustée à mon goût, je couperai la prochaine (car prochaine il y aura!) une taille au-dessus! 😬

Cut my pattern out last night and was all excited to sew it up this morning, but awoke to no power 😩 Heavy rains and gail force winds toppled my plans. I know white isn't as cute as all the prints I see, but it's needed.

Finally finished my first complete #charmpatternsbygertie #ritablouse. I ended up putting elastic in the sleeves too. I’ve already cut another in a rayon challis. Which is the first time I’ve worked with fabric other than straight cotton. So we shall see... #sewing #sewyourown #memade #sewingisaskill #practicepracticepractice #vintagestyle #pinupstyle (I didn’t make the skirt, it’s #hellbunny).

My 30 year old sewing machine quit on me as I was sewing the hem. I had to hand sew the neck and sleeves and this was after my new invisible zipper foot didn’t fit my machine so I had to sew it in the “regular” way. I am please how the top came out after all the work I had to do to get it finished. #gertie #ritablouse #charmpatternsbygertie

Talented seamstress and badass business woman Gretchen Hirsch sewed these gorg dresses. The purple one paired with my Bonjour Boater is everything. Can’t wait to see the styled pics 😍

Next on my finished muslins from this weekend is my Charm Patterns Rita Blouse. This one is mostly wearable. I say mostly because there's too much extra fabric around the waist to tuck it in so I'll be sizing down for my next one. But it's also shorter than I wear my normal blouses just out over pants so we'll see. I do love how it turned out overall so looking forward to making another soon. #charmpatternsritablouse #ritablouse #charmpatternsbygertie #muslin #testfit #polkadots

If we're talking about Chameleon's then this pattern is it, the #ritablouse from #charmpatternsbygertie. I've made several now which work brilliantly with jeans, skirts, under overalls and pattern hacked into a frock. It also works well in pretty much any type of cloth too. This blouse likes changing it up and down beautifully. #miymarch18 #miymarchstayingpower @dressmakerssocial @thatwendyward #sewer #sewcialists #sewersofinstagram #dressmaker #seamstress #memadeeveryday

Happy (snowy) first day of Spring! Sewed up a Rita dress yesterday in a gorgeous floral border print lawn for the #alittlelawnparty spring sewing challenge. I don’t know the origin of the fabric as it was given to me by a friend but it’s so light and vibrant. Can I wear this in Hawaii, please?

2nd #ritablouse done and dusted (I love love love this pattern so much!), although it’s not quite appropriate for today’s snowy weather so it’ll have to wait for sunnier times before it gets its first wear.

Update: it seems a lot of people have timing conflicts, so I’ve moved us to a large table at the Tea Lounge! Only a few spots left!
💖 If you’re planning on coming to my Charm Patterns tea party during Viva Las Vegas, please don’t hesitate to buy your ticket! (All the details are at the link in my profile; also see my last post.) I need to confirm a tentative amount with the venue this week, and low early registration could mean a change of venue (which will mean a definite cap on number of attendees). Don’t be shy, come mingle with like-minded sewing enthusiasts and enjoy a luxurious catered high tea in a swanky locale! 👗💖🍰☕️
Also, how great is this tea party illustration @gemini2013seoul did of me and Henry and Hattie? I’m pleased to report that Gemini is hard at work on the cover illustration for the next Charm Pattern! #charmpatterns #charmpatternsbygertie #vlv21 #vivalasvegas

Going to Viva Las Vegas? Want to hang out in fancy dresses and hats and have a crazy-elegant high tea in one of the swankiest venues around? I know I do! That’s why I organized the Charm Patterns VLV Tea Party. On Thursday April 19th, from 2:00 to 4:00 pm, we’ll be taking over the gorgeous Twist Bar on the 23rd floor of the Mandarin Oriental. I’ll be bringing exclusive Charm Patterns sneak peeks and raffling off prizes (think fabric, glorious fabric). See the link in my profile for details, menu, and to buy tickets. Hope to see you there! #charmpatterns #charmpatternsbygertie #vlv21 #vivalasvegas
