Marilyn Monroe- Red & White Polkadot Bikini 3pc

 This is a suit i have been wanting to try for ages and finally got around to it. Styled after the swimsuit worn by Marilyn Monroe in one of her many photo-shoots. 3pc bikini included, top, low-rise bottom and a skirt. The entire suit is cotton just as the original suit would have been. The top is interfaced for more stability, trimmed with white ruffles and double halter straps. Ties in the back. The bottoms are cut on the bias and finished with elastic, I left off the leg ruffles as Marilyn tucked them under in most of the photos. The little wrap skirt i made slightly longer in the back for more coverage, also Marilyn's skirt is pushed up a little bit in the back shot. I think id like to try this again in a spandex and see how it works in a more swim friendly fabric. This sample is now available for sale over at my 2nd Etsy shop

Have this made in your size through my shop Morningstr84
