About the Costume

Walter Plunkett designed the costumes for both 1939’s Gone With the Wind and 1944’s Can’t Help Singing. He seems to have reused the “Goodbye Ashley” dress (used by Vivien Leigh in her iconic role as Scarlett O’Hara) on an extra in Can’t Help Singing, though the sleeves have been altered and the skirt was not used.

Costume Commentary

  1. I found this picture yesterday I believe the actress wearing the Vivien Leigh dress is Deanna Durbin’s stand in in “Cant Help Singing”

  2. From what I understand this dress was originally designed with the sleeve extensions. I wonder if it was originally made with them but then they were taken off for filming and kept in the wardrobe department. I always thought it was odd that Scarlett wore a short-sleeved dress in the dead of winter; maybe Selznick wanted her to look sexier in that scene…
