For my friend Elizbeth’s birthday (2013) I made a replica costume.  She is creating the “Arthur” and has named it “49 Green Dolphin Street” after her very favorite book.  I researched and found some bits of information.  I am sharing below some of my findings.

The trick was to find the right coloured material which would drape and properly as a 1/12th scale piece of clothing.  You can see the costume draped on a chair on her blog “Studio E”.

A bias label reads “Lana Turner change 18.” Costume design by Walter Plunkett. Accompanied by a copy of the film.

  1. Hi Fatima! I have to say again, just how Thrilled I am with this little green dressing gown that you custom-made for me! The way the fabric moves into folds and drapes so perfectly is no small achievement in miniature. The hand-embroidered collar and the teeny tiny buttons are those special little extras that elevate this to a mini masterpiece for me! You are fascinated by those nessesary little details and so am I. This dressing gown is a treasured piece within my Doll’s House and is a testament to you Enormous skill and Incredible generosity, my dear friend. Once again…
    I Thank You! 😀
