The MAX3223 chip does exactly what you need.  It converts 3.3 volt serial
to RS232 levels.

You can buy just the chip and add a few passives to a perf board and make
what you need or buy a little PCB with the parts already soldered down like
this

It is actually cheaper to buy the little PCB then to buy the parts to make
one
