Marilyn Monroes Burgundy Red Silk Satin Gown And Train With Swarovski Crystal Embellishments

More Pictures coming soon! This dress will be modeled by a Marilyn Tribute Artist this Holiday, Cant wait to show you guys!

This dress is made in the styling of Marilyn Monroes original Travilla made dress from "How to Marry a Millionaire". I use a high quality medium weight silk satin (90grams/25momme) in deep burgundy red, although you may request any color you like. For bridal I would reccomend a cream dress with your accent color for the sash and belt! You may request a heavy dutchess silk satin in 40 or 66momme, please inquire for costs. The benefit of Dutchess satin is all the extra support and structure from the stiffer fabric.
The sash and belt are encrusted with authentic swarovski crystal embellishments! The bodice is very fitted as is the top portion of the skirt for a lovely hourglass shaping.

I will need the following Measurements - Please ask for Measuring Chart!

1-From top of shoulder to just below your bust
2-Above your bust where you want the neckline to sit
3-Bust Measurement & Bra Size (the strap numbers make a difference ex. 34C)

Note! I am booking up very quickly, please let me know as soon as you are considering having a dress made for yourself.

Don't forget I am a custom couture artist and I am happy to make your wildest dress dreams come true. I don't use patterns, so I can make anything you can think up. Every dress is hand cut by me to flatter your very specific measurements and shape. I use the highest quality natural (non-synthetic) fabrics, and to adorn your dresses are a huge selection of Swarovski crystal beads and rhinestones, freshwater (or saltwater) pearls, vintage sequins and vintage lace and crochet appliques!

All My dresses are available as dress kits, which are cut and pinned to your measurements and come with all the notions and directions necessary for you to sew together your very own dress! Its also much less expensive.
