Misfits Dress- Modified Boat Neckline

 This was again a request by a customer, who loved Marilyn Monroe's dress in the Misfits but also wanted to be able to wear it to work. She decided on a boat neckline with the same cutout design only much higher, the back is the same low style as the original to make it more day to night friendly. Finished its like a combination of an Audrey Hepburn dress and Marilyn Monroe's.

50's Black Satin Wiggle Dress-Request

 This fabulous dress was a custom request. The above images are the original 1950s dress that had been sold, these were sent to me by my customer I do not know who sold the dress. These pictures are used only for reference, i do not own the rights to them.

Though the original dress appears to have been made using a taffeta fabric, my customer chose a stretch satin and wanted a pop of color added so we went with a pink stretch velvet. Adding piping around the neckline/under-bust seam and the bust petals. She also chose to go without the large bow on the back. The bust has built in bra cups and boning, the front and sides also have boning to keep it smooth through the midriff. Side pleated skirt with two gathered panels creating a train on the back of the skirt.
