"Not just a guide to sewing clothes such as cigarette pants, flared skirts, wrap dresses, pinup sweaters, and shift dresses, Hirsch's volume explores the fashion landscape of the period as well as the particular challenges of sewing vintage. The book comes with basic patterns and instructions for multiple variations."--Library Journal
"Complete with fun illustrations, great photography, and step-by-step directions, the author eases readers in with an illustrated fashion history primer and devotes five chapters to telling us everything we need to know to rock our attempt to sew a vintage wardrobe. With thick paper patterns included in a bulging pack inside the back of cover, this book delivers a massive amount of value well worth the cover price."--Grand Rapids Press

The wardrobe is10 included patterns on nice, thick paper---only part I dislike is they are printed on both sides so I have to trace. Hate that, but suck it up, self! Sizing starts at a 32" bust all the way up to 46" (hips 36--50) The 10 patterns are 40's style blouse, flared skirt, knit sweetheart top, cigarette pants, easy knit pencil skirt (looks like a breeze!), pin-up sweater, shift dress, wrap dress (looks a little frumpy on the model, don't know if I'll make this one!), zip-front dress, and halter top (fitted with bust cups and side ruching, which I'm really excited to try!) EVERY SINGLE PATTERN has at least one variation, some with multiple variations, so you get a total of 35 patterns. For example, the Cigarette Pants have variations using patternmaking skills so that you can make a 40's style wide-leg pant, pedal pushers, flared shorts, sailor shorts, and jeans (which look like Freddies of Pinewood jeans). The super cute halter top can be made as a romper if you attach the top to the previously mentioned shorts! (and, gracious, is it ever cute in the book!!!!) There are models of various sizes---nice to see real world people and, of course, lovely Gertie.
I wish I could provide a review where I've made a few of the patterns, but I just got it today so that'll have to come. I just wanted to provide you with some additional information in case you were wondering whether you should get this book. I'm super excited to start sewing and make some sweet wardrobe basics, vintage-style!
Okay, I HAVE MADE TWO THINGS! I made the sailor shorts which are awesome---in fact, I have made them about 5 times now since it's Texas here! I have also made the Halter Top with ruched sides, which is fantastic and I plan on making it again with better fabric. It was a bit big on me but I have a reallllly tiny top so I took it in on the sides about an inch. The bust cups I had to adjust as well since I'm an A cup, but I did a quick mock-up and it wasn't that difficult. Next time I will make sure I enclose the boning better since it pokes me in the sides!
THREE THINGS NOW----the knit sweetheart top as well. Made it twice and it fits like a dream. Very cute and my first knit top.
I really enjoy that her models are all sizes, and shapes. All in all this is my favorite Gertie book, for now. Next week it will be the dress book. I have all her books and enjoy them very much.
I also really like the detailed sewing instructions. For example, a lot of books and patterns tell you to make a muslin and adjust the pattern to fit you. She actually details how to do that, for each type of clothing item. Each particular pattern has variations, and she goes through exactly how to adapt them. I love that.
The book is fantastic for showing you how to create clothing that's really professional and finished, but quickly. What I have sewn from this book was impossible to differentiate from a store-bought item. It's from following the instructions. I can't recommend the book highly enough.
