This is the most spectacular (and labor intensive!) dress I make. I know the price is off putting, so if its out of your budget, contact me for other fabric options (as low as $250) or to set up a payment plan. Please note that this dress, as a perfect replica takes almost a week to perfect, please be sure you order in advance!
To start,, the dress is lined in 100% silk habotai lining fabric or if you prefer something a bit more substantial, a cotton spandex to keep you nice and tight under the gown ;) The fabric will be dyed by me to match your skin color as Marilyn's was. (All the fellows in the audience say it gave the appearance of Marilyn being naked and covered in diamonds!) This means I will be sending you lots of swatches for you to see which is closest to your natural coloring. Then, the outer layer is silk georgette, also custom dyed to match your skin color. Lastly, I will be adhering over 6,000 swarovski (or the less expensive Precosia stones) flatback rhinestones (AB) by hand to your gown, just as Marilyns had.
This gown is traditionally very fitted, but if you prefer something draped a bit looser, please let me know. If you do not have a measuring tape, I will be happy to send you one along with our color samples. I recommend having bra cups sewn into the lining for most clients. The gown is 100% custom to your liking so if you want to change the color of the gown or use colored swarovskis, or even change to the styling, it's no problem, just ask!
