This beautiful doll
was sculpted by artist Anthony Bulone.
Molds for Scarlett are available
exclusively thru this website.
Scarlett is used with the wonderful
Lylis body, which is perfectly proportioned,
and features a unique swivel waist.
This tutorial will
demonstrate how to costume your
Scarlett doll in a replica of the
muslin barbeque dress that Scarlett
wore in the early part of the movie.
The dress features a very full skirt,
supported by a ruffled petticoat.
The fitted bodice is trimmed with
self fabric ruffles edged with delicate
eyelet trim and ribbon beading.
In the movie, Scarlett wears her
mothers coral necklace and earrings.
Most of the pieces
used in this costume are simple
rectangles, and the dimensions to
cut those pieces are given in the
instructions. However, the
pattern pieces for the pantaloons,
bodice front and back, and the belt
can be downloaded here. You
will need winzip to unzip this file.
This is an easy
project, and was designed to be
used with fabric created by using
my printed fabric tutorial.
You may also use purchased fabric.

Top row of lace should be 1/2" below

Keeping ends of lace out
of the way, glue center back edges of petticoat
right sides together.
One row at a time, on right
side of petticoat, glue down one end of
lace, then fold under other end, and glue
over first end. This neatly finishes
each row of lace without catching in center
