About the Costume

This floral dress with distinctive scalloped edging on the sleeves was first used in the 1930 film Honey, where Nancy Carroll wore it as Olivia Dangerfield. Travis Banton designed costumes for the film. The outfit appeared again the same year on Una Merkel as Sybil LaGrange in The Eyes of the World – a film now considered lost. An illustration of Merkel appears on the cover of a reprint of the novel, and she seems to be wearing the same dress. 

While the dress is undoubtedly the same design, it’s unknown if it is the exact same costume. Because the films came from different studios, it’s possible that the same dress was purchased off the rack for both movies.
