About the Costume

This gown was created by Walter Plunkett for Little Women in 1949. Interestingly, this was the second time that Plunkett had designed gowns for a production of Little Women, the first time being in the 1933 adaptation, starring Katharine Hepburn as Jo March.

This costume, which was worn on June Allyson as Jo March in Little Women and then recycled for The Tall Target in 1951, where it was worn on Ruby Dee as Rachel, was purchased by Debbie Reynolds. It went up for auction in 2011 again via Profiles in History (Now Heritage Auctions).

Costume Commentary

    • Fabric fades over time, which appears to be the case with this gown. You can see the orange on the sleeves and orange of the bodice are different, showing different amounts of dis-colorization over time.
