My Week with Marilyn
I love weddings! Especially when my outfit matches the theme. The ceremony was in an old movie theatre.

One More Summer Pattern: 1950s Halter Tops
Before we all put away cotton fabrics for the season and turn to the wools, you might try this reissued pattern from Simplicity updated with modern sizes. I’d still say muslin because they are close-fitting and the bust size and cup size must fit exactly, so depending on the shape of your rib cage, you may want to adjust it.
As for wearing it, this was beach and play wear in the 1950s, so if you want to wear it off the beach, take a hint from how it was pictured. Notice the high waists on the sketches, and think about adding a matching loose short or jacket with short sleeves or no sleeves. If you are feeling adventuresome, these might be combined with a dress pattern to create a new bodice. After all, party dresses have been cut with these sorts of necklines.
The original photo shows a ferris wheel in the background but I edited as a close-up to show the fabulous style of these friends who dressed for a day at the fair. I love each outfit!
