Sarong or SO right?! 🌴💜 One of my favorite things about the new Sarong Skirt addition to the Lamour Dress pattern (available for preorder at the link in my bio) is that you can make the facings in a contrast fabric for a little peek of color along the drape (swipe to see!). Our sarong is a wrap-style pencil skirt with a dramatic hip drape that is cleverly drafted by converting a dart into a voluminous ruffle meant to cascade beautifully down your curves. 🔥 We also added two other quintessential tiki design elements: a Shaheen-esque asymmetrical bodice sash and a removable shoulder drape, meant to be wrapped insouciantly around you to brave that evening chill in the tropics. 😉

This is our first release with our new size chart, in bust sizes 30.5

Glamour girls come in all shapes and sizes, and I'm so happy this pattern reflects that. With all new mix-and-match design options (for a total of 18 different dresses), this dress is equally at home at a casual country picnic or a sultry tiki affair. The pattern will now come package in a sturdy box with a 64-page “choose your own adventure” instruction booklet, which will show you the best techniques for a beautifully fitted and constructed garment while letting you be the mistress of your own sewing destiny. Read all about the design options and preorder the pattern at the link in my profile! Orders will ship in approximately four weeks. 💜🌴💜 We’re continuing our $12 flat rate international shipping through the preorder period only for orders of $49+ (maximum 4 Charm Patterns per order, not applicable to books or fabric). #sewcialists #plussize #sizeinclusive #sewingissexy #indiesewingpattern #plussizesewing #charmpatterns #charmpatternsbygertie #lamourdress #tikidress
