Barbara Bodice Pattern

Barbara Bodice and Barbara Dress from Charm Patterns.

I’m so excited to share this dreamy Barbara Bodice with you! 

This updated version of a familiar Charm favorite (S9291, also published as B6453) is inspired by Barbara Millicent Roberts, known to us all as Barbie.

Fully lined with princess seams and a scoop neckline, this bodice can be combined with any of the Lamour-series bottoms or a simple gathered skirt to create the perfect summer sundress. And, of course, it comes in the full Charm size range (2-20 and 18-34, with A-H bust cups).

We’ve included two different shoulder strap options: a thin tie shoulder strap inspired by the upcoming Barbie movie, and a wider gathered strap (to hide those bra straps!).

Don’t forget to share your makes with #charmpatterns and #barbarabodice so we can see all of your fabulous creations!

xoxo, Gertie
