Dear all,

To cheer us all up during these difficult and uncertain times, this week in the IAMHIST Blog Victoria Haddock writes on the influence of Vivien Leigh's film costumes on dressmaking patterns during the 1930s and 1940s, with a focus on Scarlett O'Hara's costumes in Gone with the Wind (1939):

If you would like to write a piece for the IAMHIST Blog in the future, either on your research, or something for the 'A Day at the Archives...' or 'Detectives in the Archives' series, please let me know.

Best wishes,
