Charm Patterns By Gertie - Cinch-It Dress
Meet the amazing Cinch-It Dress! Following the massive popularity of my Popover Dress, I wanted to bring you another dress in this style, adding lots of design options and our famous cup sizes. Choose from three neckline styles, three sleeve styles, and two pockets. This dress gets its name from its unique vintage silhouette—it’s a dramatic trapeze shape with lots of ease in the body. But cinch it with a belt or waistline shirring and you have a cute and comfy ‘50s fit-and-flare frock! I guarantee the Cinch-It will become your favourite everyday dress.
