Niagara outfit continues for Marilyn Monroe!

Good morning dolly fans!

My Franklin Mint Marilyn is hopefully making her way towards me at this very moment! In the meantime, I am going on with her outfit….

The patterns are drafted by the chimney with care, whoops, my holiday mindset is showing, lol! There are many bits to this outfit…

As the cool red jacket is the most complicated I will start there. The red fabric I am using is a midweight poppy red woven that has a luxurious look to it. It frays like nobody’s business, so I’ll need to be careful handling it. Once it’s all together it’ll be fine because all the seams are enclosed. It’s a great colour and it presses really well. Here’s a pic of the jacket and some of it’s linings in mid construction….

I’m about halfway through the shirt at this point and the skirt is all cut out as well, but I haven’t taken any photos of that yet 🙂 I’ll do that next time!

Thanks for stopping in, more later …
