Inspiration: Gertie's Sundress Sewalong (Butterick 6453)


I normally don't participate in all that many sewalongs (besides #vintagepledge) but this spring the stars aligned and I'm doing several! I'm extra excited about Gretchen's Butterick 6453 sewalong; it's such a classic shape and it will be perfect for all those summer picnics I attend (in my dreams). I'm making it in a pretty navy eyelet and it's getting my so ready for warm temperatures... or maybe a vacation! What's your favorite spring getaway? Bonus points if it's in the Southeastern US!

  1. The bodice on that dress is so beautiful! You are making me want to sew one too!
    As for a favorite spring getaway, I like to "staycation" here in Charleston :-). It feels like a completely different city when I get to do touristy things on my day off!

    1. It's a really lovely pattern and it sews up quickly due to the simplicity! I think it'll be a regular in my wardrobe... Charleston is the BEST weekend getaway! I've been a few times and I really want to go again this spring (before it gets soooo hot).

  2. I love the lines of that dress! I'm on the lookout for a TNT dress, but I don't really know what I like in a dress since what I like on others isn't always what i like on myself, so maybe I need to go try on a bunch of styles in stores and then get sewing.

    1. It's such a pretty, simple pattern, I definitely see myself making multiples. I think trying on store clothes is definitely the way to find your TNT shapes--there's nothing worse than spending a bunch of time on a project and then realizing it's just not "you"!

  3. Oh man, this post makes me anxious for summer! If the stars align I would also like to join this challenge! I really like what you've been working on for it :)
