Movie Monday: Gone With The Wind

Next Saturday, November 14, at 11:00, there will be a special HD presentation of one of the greatest movies of all time (meaning about the last 115 years really, since cinematography was officially invented in 1895): I'm talking about Gone with the Wind (1939).

Scarlett O'Hara's costumes are classics! They have been copied for TV shows and made it into Barbie's wardrobe.

Of course, I have my favorites. First of is the Green Drapery Dress.

Here is a better view:

Because I love it so much, and for when I decide to make it, I have in my collection of patterns the following Butterick:

I know, I know Mom. Again with the green velvet. To this I respond with the BBQ dress:

It's pretty, light and floral. And I already have the hat.

And the pattern:

McCall's 3597

So now all I'm missing is the fabric, the money and the time, and I'm good to go. Oh wait, those are important details. Darn.
