I could not end the phrase that my title was supposed to be as I am trying my best to reduce the amount of swearing and bad words recently. I hope you know, though, from which movie the quote is. And if you know now, well... you are in for a treat! as today I shall be telling you about one of the movies that changed my childhood - the movie Gone With The Wind from 1939. I always loved this movie and usually I would watch it on the MGM Channel in 2 parts - as it is quite extensive!
That dress was designed to tell its own story, Wilson says. It was actually fitted on the actress who played Scarlett's mother rather than Leigh, to underscore the rushed nature of the wedding.
There are those who say $30,000 is too much to think about right now, and tomorrow is another day. But frankly, Wilson says, "there are just as many people who do give a damn about these costumes."
Just look at the picture above of the green velvet dress made out of the curtains :) She has a very innovative mind and where normal people see a stop to their ideeas she sees a challenge. Scarlett taking down the curtains and making the velvet dress reminds me very much of Maria, in The Sound Of Music, when Capitan Von Trapp tells her children do not need play clothes as they do not play - and she takes down the curtains in her room and makes wonderful play clothes for all the 7 children! :) When there is a will there is always a way! I always loved that, her stubborness, her willingness to break walls in order to achieve what she wanted and needed. I am a huge fan of the green color so I have to say I am happy most of Scarlett's clothes are either green or red - also matching to her beautiful eyes and her fiery hair ;) The green velvet dress and the green overcoat/dress with long sleeves touching the ground were always my favs.
I do not know if you ever watched Gone With The Wind, but I would love to hear what was your fav piece of costume ;) What would you not mind wearing? As you can see, I have some in mind ;)
