This lovely wedding dress is styled after the black satin dress worn by Audrey Hepburn in the film ''Sabrina'' I used a beautiful medium weight 100% silk satin in ivory and fully underlined it with broadcloth to support the silk i then lined the dress. The bodice has boning in each seam to keep the waist as smooth as possible. My client chose to omit the center front seam and to keep the unmatched front princess seams. Since the measurements required a larger bust the princess seams sit a little differently as well. I used an invisible zipper and decorative covered button up the back. The skirt has an attached netting slip underneath. The shoulders I left as adjustable ties :-)

Today I was sent three customer pictures, as i have said probably a million times I love getting pictures. I rarely get to see the people i sew for anymore, I just work from numbers so seeing the final product on the person it was made for just makes me smile.
Above we have the ''Girl Cant Help It'' Dress worn by my lovely customer. This time made in black instead of the usual navy blue to make finding accessories easier, i used a medium weight stretch black cotton sateen with black satin bows in the back and as the underlining for the collar. You can check out my origional post about the first time i made this dress here
Second is the Audrey Hepburn ''Breakfast at Tiffany's Fringe Dress'' which just so happens to be made using the same fabric, the stretch black cotton sateen. Scoop neckline dress with an attached tie belt and two rows of rayon chainette fringe. Somehow I forgot to blog about this dress! I will have to remedy that soon ;-)
And last but never least! One of my lovely Marilyn impersonators sent a picture wearing the Gold Lame Dress. this was the sample I posted about earlier here. As always I am posting these photos with permission from each individual shown and may not be re-posted or shared without their consent. Thank you!

Made using a stretch satin fabric with lace up detail in front and sides. I used bra foam cut to suit the shape of the bust instead of using pre-made bra cups. Elastic legs, scoop back with invisible zipper. I did small button holes for the lacing and narrow straps that tie at the shoulders. I am taking order for this suit on Etsy i do take custom measurements, you can check out the listing here Morningstar84
