       I've fallen madly in lust with a gown that I've only seen for a few seconds.  In Charlie & the Chocolate Factory, there is a short montage illustrating how Wonka displays are selling out all over the globe.  To illustrate Manhattan's choco-madness, they show a frock made from Wonka bars, which is completely destroyed in a flash, leaving the mannequin wearing nothing but her 'roos. 

     So now I'm dying to recreate this gown, or at least something similar.  I'm willing to buy brown satin and paint the Wonka labels on it myself.  I think it would look killer over a gold lame bustier or corset.  (Golden ticket, get it?) 

   Problem is, I can't find a still of the dress anywhere!  Can anyone point me toward a link with this dress?  Does anyone know the frock of which I speak?

I know exactly what you're talking about, but I'm not really able to recall it in my head. I work at a movie theatre, so if I get the chance and no ones replied, I'll go in and check out that scene

I love that scene.  All these adult, high fashion women mobbing that poor mannequin!  As far as I recall, it is a full skirt with a train.  I will have to search for a picture.

Yes!!! This would be amazing!!!

I think your best bet would be to wait untill it comes out on DVD, play it on your computer, pause it on that scene, take a screen shot, and work from there. Because, you know, I CERTAINLY don't condone downloading a free version from Kazaa. Deffinetly not...  Wink

So. Yes. I hope you can wait  Grin

Good luck! Be sure to post when you are done!

      Gah!  My hope was to wear it either for Halloween or the corporate holiday party.  And since my sewing skills are ...ambitious yet rudimentary...I sorta needed to get started as soon as possible so I could screw it up enough times to actually have time to get it right.  ;-)  I WILL find a suitable pattern for this.  I'm thinking vintage Dior or YSL.  Maybe Barbie would be a good resource.  It wouldn't be the first time I upsized a Barbie pattern.
