Boardwalk Sundress and Patio Skirt Pattern

Boardwalk Sundress and Patio Skirt vintage-inspired sewing pattern from Charm Patterns.

Charm’s summer school is now in session, and I have the perfect pattern for you to celebrate the season!

The Boardwalk Sundress was inspired by the iconic blue polka dot milkmaid-style dress worn by Marilyn Monroe during a 1957 photoshoot with her husband Arthur Miller. 

Charm’s version includes thin shoulder straps, a gathered bust over a fitted midriff panel, clever ties that form a bow at the front keyhole opening, and a three-tier gathered patio skirt. 

To make this pattern even better, both the bodice and the skirt are compatible with other Lamour-series patterns, so you can mix and match to create dozens of other garments!
