Marilyn Monroe Diamonds Dress
I have made a version of this dress before, but this one is to have the black satin cuff on the bow, the skirt lining will also be black AND i'm making matching gloves! She chose the lighter pink satin since its closer to the original shade of pink, the technicolor image on film made the dress look more pink. The girl i'm making this for is a professional Marilyn impersonator, so it has to be right! I'm excited to be making this dress again, i have always loved recreating dresses from just a picture, its like solving a puzzle. Once i have it all together i'll post pictures :-)
Below is the dress i made a few years ago.
