This was a custom request for the gold dress that Mira Sorvino wore when playing Marilyn Monroe in the 1996 film ''Norma Jean and Marilyn'' below are screen grabs from the film, there aren't many pictures of the dress out there, so i had to watch these scenes several times trying to figure out what those pleats were doing.
I found a great cream and gold metallic crepe fabric on ebay that worked really well for this dress. I lined it in cream and added bra cups. The pleating was a bit of a pain, trying to get everything to lay where i wanted, but i think it came out well. i even made the little dangle in the back neckline :-)
