Pattern Description:

I am addicted to murder. Don't get me wrong; I've never killed, but I love a good murder mystery, and I love a good noir film. I have a certain sympathy with the dames, broads, dolls, and molls of the noir genre. They may be bad, but in the words of Jessica Rabbit, they're drawn that way. Every femme fatale needs a tight fitting dress that makes her look like a million dangerous bucks, and that's what Audrey Totter is. Knit simply in mostly stockinette fit, the design uses dart shaping and negative ease to cling to every curve. The lace sash is knit separately and joined to the dress afterward for a retro look that is to die for.
