Doll Fashions By Alana: Scarlett’s Paisley Robe
Although a great majority of Scarlett O’Hara’s “Gone With The Wind” wardrobe has been produced by The Franklin Mint, Robert Tonner, and even Mattel, there are still quite a few of her costumes that have not been replicated for the 16" fashion doll market. This sumptuous paisley robe is one of them. The Franklin Mint created a version of it to fit their 24" porcelain Scarlett, but so far a smaller-scaled outfit has not been released. What does a picky collector do when they want to be able to have Scarlett wear ALL her costumes? Contact Alana at Doll Fashions by Alana! She has expertly replicated almost every costume that Vivien Leigh wore in the 1939 classic, and done them to a “T.” Need the New Orleans Honeymoon dress? Contact Alana! Wishing you could have the blue velvet robe & gown Scarlett wears on her Atlanta terrace while discussing her marriage to Rhett? Contact Alana! The Paisley Robe pictured here (with the Pink House Restaurant staircase in Savannah as a backdrop) was crafted by Alana.
