Little Women
Costume seen on June Allyson as Jo March
Tall Target
Costume seen on Ruby Dee as Rachel

This gown was created by Walter Plunkett for Little Women in 1949. Interestingly, this was the second time that Plunkett had designed gowns for a production of Little Women, the first time being in 1933 and starring Katharine Hepburn as Jo.

This gown, which was worn on June Allyson in Little Women and then recycled for Tall Target several years later, eventually was purchased by Debbie Reynolds. It went up for auction in 2011. You can learn more about the dress and the auction here.
