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 ataptation, starring Katharine Hepburn as Jo.

This costume, which was worn on June Allyson in Little Women and then recycled for 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)
