First Peek at The “Rita” Shorts!

I’ve got a special surprise for you! My cousin and I got together today for photos of the new pattern and I just couldn’t wait any longer to show you what I’ve been working on!

Introducing pattern #1006- The “Rita” Shorts.  These pleated shorts are suitable for looks from the late 1930s through the mid 1940s, and will include three options- short waistband, tall waistband, and tall waistband with suspenders (the last of which is shown here).  This is shown with a top from pattern #1002- Smooth Sailing.

I hope you love them! I’m estimating that they should be ready in about two weeks! :)

  1. Oh, so cute. I remember these from the 50s. These skorts were so fun. Beautiful. Thanks for the pattern.

  2. So cute! And so very aptly named. I can just picture Rita Hayworth wearing these shorts to dance a number with Fred Astaire or Gene Kelly.

  3. What a lovely pattern! We had skorts when I was growing up, too, but they weren’t this cute! I know they’ll be successful!
