Red Pin-up Bikini

I was really surprised when I saw photo of Marilyn Monroe in the yellow bikini....somebody post it in the Facebook a few days ago. Bikini was the same as my red/white polka dot bikini and I really didn't copied it.

and this is my version..

Top, Tutu and Skirt

Back from vacation. Two weeks of lazing around is over and a lot of work is waiting for me. Throughout these two weeks I managed to read "50 Shades of Gray" trilogy, paint the hallway in blue-gray, big kitchen cleaning, sew tutu skirt with satin top and red dotted full circle skirt and almost finished hubby's blue pants....this was just yesterday because outside was cold and windy. 

Tutu, skirt and top are made for a pretty young actress Karolina Horvat, member of the acting troupe "Pinklec" and she will wear it at the gala premiere of the play in which she acts, it will be held in late September. I hope I will be able to take pictures of her when she'll lift this set because it is so small sized that does not fit the doll (top).

 There are 12 layers of tulle in Tutu skirt....6 in turquoise and 6 in white color
Top is made of satin with zipper on the left side. It's not connected with a skirt as it is on Carrie's dress. Karolina can wear all parts independently from each other.
Inspiration was  Carrie B.'s outfit from "Sex in the city"

Mille-fleur, many ideas, few patterns, two(three) dresses....
When I saw that green mille-fleur cotton fabric I knew immediately it would be beautiful summer dress. I bought 4 meters, double amount of fabric...just in case.

I combined two patterns for the dress. It turned out like this.

I wasn't quite satisfied. The dress was too closed with pleats everywhere... I decided to separate the top and the skirt half and join them simpler parts. It turned out like this...

Dress No.1...with bustier top and pleated skirt.

Dress No.2 ...with pleated top and pencil skirt.
Here shown with a modest neckline, original pattern.
