Marilyn Monroe- The Seven Year Itch- Piano Dress

 Styled after the dress worn by Marilyn Monroe in 'The Seven Year Itch' I call it the ''Piano Dress'' because of the scene where she wears it. For my version of the dress i used a white cotton blend eyelet fabric over a blue cotton twill, fitted wiggle dress style with scoop neckline and crossing halter strap front, back skirt has flounce instead of back slit, i sewed the straps in the back since there is no real need for them to un-hook like in the film. This sample dress is available for sale here on Etsy


  1. Alas all the measurements are right, save the waist :( i'm a 23"
