Elizabeth Taylor-Suddenly Last Summer
This fantastic dress is from the dramatic film ''Suddenly Last Summer''
staring Elizabeth Taylor, though filmed in black and white there are color publicity shots, though each one shows a lightly different green. Below is the dress i made recently using the pictures above. It is made of organic linen, lined in cotton with full boning and bra cups built into the bodice. The skirt is 6 gores each with a pin tuck down the center, you can see the detail in the last black and white image. the bodice neckline is finished off with a facing, as you can see in some of the images of Liz the facing is obvious. In some shots the neckline looks straighter and others more sweetheart, I went with the more sweetheart shape. I also made a matching belt, this is the first time i have used a cover kit for the buckle, it was surprisingly easy. This dress is available over at my Etsy shop Morningstar84 for more details :-)
