The dress is a close representation of the one worn by Marilyn in the movie. A couple of things to point out. The dress is only pinned on my mannequin at one point: the side bust as it was too big. It can be easily run in if it works out too big for the buyer. We have a tailoring service we use....see below under policies for more information. The skirt is also very tight and the cross over flap is fully open to waist. So it could be revealing when worn. A stitch just below the hips could remedy this situation if it poses any problem. Cleaned and ready to wear. Please drop us a line if your require additional information about this listing.
