Marilyn Monroe Sheer Midriff Wiggle Dress

Styled after the black wiggle dress worn by Marilyn Monroe during a photo shoot with then husband Arthur Miller. The neckline is reminiscent of Audrey Hepburn's ''Sabrina'' dress, a high boat neck with narrow shoulder straps. The lower portion of the dress however is very Marilyn with a shear midsection and a narrow mid-calf length skirt with no slit. You are guaranteed to wiggle and sway wherever you go in this dress. My version of the dress is made using a wool blend suiting and a stretch chiffon for the midsection, the bodice is fully lined and the skirt has a waist facing to keep any inside seams from being seen through the chiffon. This dress is available as a custom dress on Etsy through Morningstar84.
