Marilyn Monroe...Somethings got to give...Now fabric limited

Made from a wonderfully stretchy techno knit fabric. This gorgeous dress is an ultimate 1962 couture classic with a seductive low back plunge. Heavily darted which is cut in an extreme hourglass shape that nips in at the waist and then opens to a mid calf length pencil skirt. The dress doesn't have a zip, you just pull it on like a jumper. Pair this stunning dress with a pair of 1960's pointy stiletto's for the absolute perfect cocktail party look!

About the dress...

Worn by Marilyn Monroe in her final film, Something's Got to Give in 1962. Designed by Jean Louis. Monroe wore this dress when her character, who was proclaimed dead and returns from being stranded on an island for five years, is introduced in the film and reunited with her children, who do not realize she is their mother. Monroe was fired from the film, and while the studio tried to replace her with Lee Remick, the film's leading man, Dean Martin, refused to finish the film without Monroe. Monroe's untimely death came less than a month after she was let go from the production.

I have enough for this fabric to made 6 more dresses. Once it's gone, it's gone.
