Dress like Bette, Marilyn, Jackie or Madonna

Famous frocks, the book with twenty dress patterns of Sara Alm inspired by classy celebrities, has been translated into Dutch. Droomjurken it's called and it's intruiging.

It contains the famous white dress of Marilyn Monroe, a stylish black dress of Audrey Hepburn, a dress of Madonna in her early years, dresses of Twiggy, Bette Davies, Stevie Nicks, Rita Hayworth and more.

The patterns are all included and the book has detailed instructions. What's missing though are photos of the finished dresses. Luckily the original publisher Chronicle Books shows them on the internet and there's a group on Flickr.

Which one would I want to make first? I can't decide.
