Vintage Shirt Patterns

I recently purchased the Gertie Sews Vintage Casual book and can’t wait to create some of the garments such as the vintage shirt patterns. Since I am building my wardrobe I am sewing two of the 40’s Style Shirts in the book. Below is the fabric I am using and more detailed information about my sewing project.

I’m thinking about including two pairs of pants and maybe a dress in the near future. So stay tuned!

I am thinking about adding detailed trim to this one for added character.
