Gone With the Wind
The BBQ Dress
~ The fabric for this gown is extremely difficult to photograph. The
best color of the gown is the first image on the BBQ gown main page.
The sash appears black in many pictures but is a rich dark
green velvet. The ribbon is also a dark green velvet. There are two
different dress size variations in the thumbnails of this gown. The first group
of bbq dress pictures are of dresses made for a tall lady about 5 foot 7, using
23 yards of the top print layer. The second group of images are a gown made for a 5'2 tall lady using 18 yards of the print fabric. Both of the gowns are shown over 191 inch circumference hoop slips.
The "Ruffle Dress" is also known as the
opening scene dress , the prayer dress or the "for love of Tara"
dress. The pictures were taken to show progress of
the dress. The belt appears
black but is a very vivid red velvet. Gown is shown here over a 175
inch hoop. The dress is actually worn over a 191 inch bottom
circumference hoop. You can see the difference on the ruffle dress page in
Dee's and Marci's pictures. They both have the larger hoops
but are very different in height: one is 5'7 and the other is 5'2.
Gown requires a large heavy duty hoop.
~ The dress is shown over a 191 inch hoop slip. This
dress is a very deep blue velvet. The pictures were altered in
color to show the detail. The first three images of the bodice that are dark
blue are truer to the gown's color. This gown can be worn bustled in the
back or simply let out the ties and have a draping train. We did not take pictures of the skirt bustle let down. We plan on
taking some shortly and will post them here for you. In the mean time, for
example purposes, we have loaded a picture of the porcelain Franklin Mint
Scarlett doll in the portrait gown. We used the doll's dress as a reference
when making this gown. The life size gown has an 18 inch drape at
the back of the skirt when not bustled.
The "Red Dress"
is also known as Ashley's Birthday Party dress ~ The
Shame Gown and the Garnet Velvet dress. Photographing this dress and
capturing the true color of the velvet is difficult. The velvet can look black, purple,
and, of course, red as it
appeared in the movie "Gone With the Wind". The dress actually is a deep rich
BURGUNDY velvet. There are many pictures of this gown in several stages and there are a few
different gowns in this group of pictures. We took several
photographs of one of the gowns before we added all the ostrich feathers
and plumes. This will give you a chance to see all the intricate detailing on
the dress before being obscured by the feathers. There are 2 different
variations of bustled trains for the gown. Also there are two
different variations of glass or crystal drops that can be used on the
bodice front. Additionally there is a choice of Swarovski Austrian crystal
faceted stones or acrylic faceted stones either set in gold halo rims
which are scattered all over the dress and trains. Once again, most of these images were color altered to show detailing.
This is the garnet gown done in a deep red velvet
Ellen O'Hara's Prayer / Opening scene gown. This is just a absolutely stunning gown and sadly once again the fabric is so hard to get the true luster of this wonderful fabric.
~ These garments can be made in any color you wish.
This particular set are pink themed. We have
made them with green and blue and red accents to name a few. Just use your
imagination. Scarlett's were blue, but you can have any color
you would like.
