Inspired By ~ Diane Lane in “Under the Tuscan Sun”

Have you seen Under the Tuscan Sun? Oh, good – Diane Lane just looks so fantastically womanly in that film, don’t you think? I love all of her full skirts and belted dresses, gorgeous wavy hair, and of course her Tuscan farmhouse and Italian Lovah. Let’s pretend we’re going down to Positano for the day to eat gelato on the beach. Afterward, we’ll have a tiny glass of limoncello and toast to the Mediterranean sea.


At the end of the day, we’ll both hop on my Vespa and zoom up the hill to your house – it’s always so pleasant hanging out by the fountain in your courtyard. In the evening, we’ll open up all the shutters to let the scent of roses come in, and you can play us something on the piano.

    I was wondering if you could help me. I have been looking all over for a dress like the orange one Diane Lane wore at the wedding reception in Under the Tuscan Sun. I have been unable to find it or even a pattern so I can make it. Do you have any information on how I might aquire either the dress or pattern?

    Hi Penny, I so love that dress as well! I am having it made for me for my daughter’s wedding in June. I was suprised to find so many people were such a fan of this dress too. cheers, Karen

    I came across your wonderful bog while doing research on the dresses of this film!

    I also wanted to let Penny know, if she is still looking (or if anyone else is for that matter :) That I am a seamstress and I have a shop on etsy doing 50’s inspired skirts and dresses–I currently have my version of the orange dress available (custom to order in your size, made of dupioni silk):


    I will also have the white dress available soon, as well as a couple of Katherine’s beautiful outfits, so check back :) (and I hope you don’t mind that I posted here :)
