ABOUT THE DRESS

The Rose's Boarding suit is a wonderful outfit to view up close.

The fabric is similar to a heavy twill with thin black stripes, and purple satin was used as the accent of color. The stipes were employed to great effect on this suit. They run horizontally across the center front and center back portions of the jacket and again in the inset where the skirt is draped at the bottom. Purple satin was used to accent the collar, belt and buttons, that were used on the double-breasted jacket and on the skirt, with the exception of the four buttons on the belt front and back; these were covered with the suit material.
The hat, wich took center stage early in the film, has a double border.

The entire costume is a visual delight. Colors and patterns work together to create a most striking image and one that's fun to view again and again.

Deborah L. Scott, the original costume designer of that outfit, won an Oscar with her work for this film in 1997.

It was the ship of dreams to everyone else. To me, it was a slave ship taking me back to America in chains.
Outwardly, I was everything a well-brought-up girl should be.
Inside, I was screaming.
