Audrey Hepburn orange summer dress

The Fashion of Audrey — The actress Audrey Hepburn photographed by Bob...:

This dress is worn by Audrey Hepburn as Gaby in ‘Paris When it Sizzles’. I have only watched this film again because of the dress. The interest is at the back, but the collar, tulip skirt and front bow keep the front from being plain. I have yet to find cream kitten heels, but my camel pair from Next go well. My straw hat was from Primark! The pearl earrings are from a vintage market.

I made this with some light cotton fabric I was given. I immediately thought of the dress from Paris When it Sizzles. I used a fitted shift dress pattern. I had to figure out how to get the drape at the back and the shoulder strap shape. I cut the skirt half wider at the top then gathered it to get the tulip effect. The collar was only just successful but I’m happy with it.
