Janet Leigh poses for a Photoplay feature

Here is a picture of Janet Leigh in the PHOTOPLAY issue wearing the dress in the colors I remember it from the film. This is the dress I hope to make again.

Scene from movie--Walking My Baby Back Home

Janet is wearing the dress I hope to make again from the pattern shown below.

Lobby Card with Janet in dress I want to Make

The dress is not in the right colors. In the movie, the dress in blues and that is what I'll use to make it again.

Dress worn by Janet Leigh

I am very happy to get this pattern again! I made the dress back in 1954 after seeing Janet Leigh wear it in the movie, "Walking My Baby Back Home" and I saw the dress in a PHOTOPLAY magazine also. The skirt requires 8 yards of fabric! I want to use a plaid taffeta and a wool jersey for the bodice. Organdy is needed for the cap sleeve.
It pays to be persistant and patient in order to find those special items from the past.
