For Love or Money Hostess Gown

Posted on

Based on a fashion worn by Mitzi Gaynor in the movie “For Love or Money” from 1963.


Although the original was in white and yellow with a pattern of sweet peas, I chose to use this Liberty of London fabric in navy blue printed with red and orange pansies because it was similar in scale to the original.  The fashion consists of a floor length gown that is open on one side, revealing a pair of red silk capri pants.  A red silk sash with fringed ends defines the waist.

This fashion fits Silkstone Barbie, Victoire Roux, and FR2 dolls.
