"Famous Frocks" provides everything fashionistas need to re-create favorite iconic dresses by hand - from Audrey's little black dress, to Marilyn's summery white halter, Farrah's sexy wrap dress, Stevie Nicks' fringed frock, and even Madonna's sexy 'Like a Prayer' number! Vintage photos of the original look alongside beautiful shots of the 20 finished projects inspire, while full-size patterns and how-to illustrations break down each step so sewers of all levels can follow along.
