Charm Patterns by Gertie are here! First, this glamorous halter dress was named for Dorothy Lamour, who starred in many films with tropical flair. Now you can make your own using some of the best sewing techniques for a beautifully fitted and structured garment. The fully lined dress has underlining and boning in the bodice, princess seams, a center front bust pleat detail, convertible halter straps, and a three-quarter circle skirt with side seam pockets. Tips, tricks, and free videos will guide you along the way.
This perfectly vintage peasant blouse makes me think of Hollywood starlet Rita Moreno. Pair it with any circle skirt or pair of pedal pushers for a 1950's look! The Rita pattern has a flattering elasticized neckline which can be worn on or off the shoulder, a choice of elasticized or flutter cap sleeves, a fitted midriff with princess seams, and an invisible side zipper for a smooth finish.
