1970s Young Edwardian Marilyn Monroe Plunging Nylon Jersey Print Dress

This Young Edwardian piece is amazing and the Marilyn Monroe print that covers it just makes it that much more fabulous. The nylon that it is made out of is of a good quality and weight and it has a n added bonus of being able to wash and wear. The fabric is a peachy color with the Marilyn faces done in an ivory color. I think that the color is better in person then how it photoed even though the color is very close in these shots. It slips over the head with an extremely deep plunge at the front, the back and both sides. The triangles that make up each panel around the upper body all curve in towards the neckline and it buttons at the back of the neck. There is a wide panel of elastic gathered just under the bust and this bit of stretch there makes it comfortable to wear. The skirt falls from there to the floor. Excellent condition

Unlined and slips on with elastic at the high set waist line. The fabric does have some stretch.
