Channel your inner movie star with a wedding dress or evening gown that’s got all the glamour of Old Hollywood.

Carrie Bishop draws inspiration from the films of the 1920s, ’30s and ’40s in designing her Retrofit sewing pattern series.

Each of the four original designs is named for a screen goddess of the Golden Era, and reflects that inimitable vintage style.

Ava, for example, is a strapless princess-line gown with curvy feminine pleats at hip and bodice. The matching bolero jacket has a flattering shawl collar. Sew it up in silk or rich taffeta to get the authentic drape.
