This iconic white dress is perfect for my portrayal of Marilyn in "Hooray for Hollywood", my dance group's jazz performance for our upcoming show. The fabric is much nicer than I expected. It is just the right weight to flow and, while not a pleated skirt, it is still a great rendition of the original. The skirt is a bit long but, then, so were they in the 50's/60's. It should not be difficult to shorten if need be. I am very pleased that this costume is of such high quality for such a reasonable price.
