Hello all! I'm new to the RPF (though I've been on the outskirts of the prop-making community for a while). I am a sewist in the research stage of replicating Barbara Streisand's "Dolly Levi" burgundy gown from the 1969 film, Hello, Dolly (designed by Irene Sharaff). I've been in touch with a couple auction houses and museums to acquire high resolution photographs of the garment/accessory, but beyond this, not much seems to be available to the public. Any tips/ideas of where to head next for more info? Thanks!

Have you attempted to contact the studio?

I've seen some in the past that have had some success in doing so.
Thanks for the tip! I will give that a go. Meanwhile, I have been poring over tailors guides and fashion plates from the period to draft some patterns. If anyone has tips/recommendations for juxtaposing “historically accurate” pattern drafting with screen accurate costuming, I’m all ears!
