Marilyn Monroe in Niagara

26 August 2013

Planning ahead for Spring and Summer, I thought I’d write a little post on some of my favourite and most inspiring iconic films, and some very stylish women.  I recently watched Niagara, an early Marilyn Monroe film, from 1953.

How gorgeous is this little number?


This pattern comes close, I love the slightly flared skirt, just needs a rounded hem and collar on the jacket, and an extra button.

 I love it!  One day I’ll make a suit, maybe something like that one.  On my casual separates quest, this ensemble stands out too:


 Gorgeous!  The classic pencil skirt and statement jacket.  I have this really simple skirt pattern, I have managed to fit one skirt in just over one meter of fabric, so quite a stylish and economical project for those remnants you love and don’t know what to do with.
