Dorothy is the first sewing pattern in the Starlet Collection, designed in collaboration with 1940s singing trio The Three Belles. This off-the-shoulder show-stopper comes in a gorgeous three-quarter length with a choice of flared or wiggle skirt.

With her off-the-shoulder V neckline, figure-skimming bodice and slight fishtail skirt, Dorothy is a vision of 1940s showgirl glamour. Inspired by the songstresses themselves, The Three Belles wore Dorothy at their Summer 2015 appearances, including Twinwood Festival, and said they’d never gotten so much attention for their outfits before!
In three-quarter length, Dorothy is perfect for proms, parties, and wedding guest outfits. Like all of our patterns, Dorothy is actually deceptively simple to sew, and a real head-turner to boot!
Silks and light satins will give Dorothy a softer, lighter feel and an Old Hollywood understated elegance; duchesse satin and heavier fabrics such as velvet will give a more structured feel to the dress, creating a flattering silhouette and fuller skirt for high impact glamour. The neckline particularly lends itself to embellishment opportunities – try a feather, lace or crystal trim, for a truly unique occasion dress.
