Lucinda, the Orphan: or The Costumes, a Tale Exemplified in a Series of Dresses Printed for S. & J. Fuller, London, 1812, includes paper doll, seven costumes, six hats, book and slip case (light surface wear on book and slip case, some toning on figure).
The fittings for Elizabeth Taylor for A Place in the Sun proved lively and enjoyable. Taylor would often bring her mother, her tutor from MGM, and a myriad of pets with her. Edith found Elizabeth to be very well-mannered and totally in sync with the proposed designs. It must have also helped that Elizabeth had a beautiful hourglass figure and she kept trying to cajole Edith into making the waistline of the dresses as tiny as possible. Edith described her as “one of the prettiest human beings I’ve ever seen.”
I'm a student studying costume design. I enjoy black coffee, bare feet, the smell of grass, driving without direction, people watching, grammar, arguments, being a vegetarian, and slowly making my way around the world. I don't want to fit into any sort of category.
