Vintage Sewing with Tara Moss

Tara Moss, ASG Patron, has dived into the sewing experience head first.  Ten months after first taking up sewing, Tara found the courage to tackle her first Gertie dress.  The end result was this stunning gold brocade number from Gertie's Ultimate Dress Book.

Like all true sewing enthusiasts, Tara added her personal touch to the pattern with a few design alterations, as well as the mandatory fitting adjustments.  Read about the production of this dress on Victory Lamour's blog.

Note to Tara - If you can produce a garment like this you'll soon have to stop calling yourself a "newbie".
