Molyneux Gingham Dress

This dress was inspired by a 1945 Molyneux design from the Theatre de la Mode collection.

I was lucky enough to find a beautiful black and white silk gingham.  I love how most of the dress is cut on the bias.

It took me a while to figure out how to make the straw hat block to shape the hat.  I had to get creative and ended up using a yogurt container, racket ball, and wash clothes.

Making straw hats is fun!

My models are "Hollywood Canteen" Marsha and my brand new "Palm Springs" Marsha.

Of course I had to see what the pattern would look like in a different fabric.

I love the results.

 "Palm Springs" Marsha is so lovely.
