Experiment in Green
This is patterned after the hat that Scarlett attempted to wear during her first mourning scene. Mammy of course catches her little pet and calls her attention. Those are real feathers on the hat of different colors: red hues, dark with shimmer of green and white/grey/black feather. The bustle is gathered and sewn to give it a pouf. Underneath that was a bustle pillow (similar to the Final Farewell) I added more cloth to give it a bigger lift. Below is a medium shot of the bodice and the hat. I forgot to say that the seamstress found a very cute brooch to be placed on top of the bodice. I think Scarlett likes the dress. The train is a trifle long but heck, Scarlett was known for extremes anyhow. This doll is from the Tonner Blue Portrait version.
