Retro/Fit Patterns

Retro/Fit introduces a new line of bridal and evening sewing patterns inspired by styles of the past. Featuring four elegant patterns named from the movie icons of the '20s, '30s and '40s: Ava, Dolores, Emma and Myrna. Carrie Bishop is a graduate of CCAC and the designer of Retro/Fit patterns. “It all started with Barbie—my parents bought me a Barbie doll but refused to buy any of the expensive clothes. So they bought me a little handcrank sewing machine (thank goodness they were actually selling Barbie patterns) and I started making clothes for my doll.

Retro/Fit patterns can be purchased online and at Bella Vita. 5407 College Avenue Oakland, CA 94618 510.653.1639 tue - sat 11-6 sun 12-5
