    NicoleJerelen, You have one print from a six print limited edition set (your's is from set number 182) of Walter Plunkett's original portfolio drawings from the Gone With The Wind Costume Designs.
    The complete set includes Scarlett's 1.) Burgundy Ball Gown, 2.) Barbecue Dress, 3.) Portieres Dress {or the Drapery Dress}, 4.) the Atlanta Bazaar Black Mourning Gown Scarlett wore after 1st husband, Charles Hamilton's death, 5.) New Orleans Honeymoon Dress, and 6.) Rhett Butler in White Suit (the suit he was wearing at Belle Watling's house of ill repute when Scarlett sent Prissy to fetch him {the birthing babies scene}.
    Only 1,000 of these limited edition sets where released, making a complete set highly sought after. The last complete set, in good condition sold at Julien's for $1,800.00.
    The original Portieres Dress {or the Drapery Dress} and four other costumes from GWTW are housed at the University of Texas in Austin as part of the David O. Selznick Archives. In 1987, detailed replicas (original fabrics and trimming) of the of the gown were made for display, as the originals were too deteriorated for show, but in 2012 funds were raised to conserve the original deteriorated, costumes from Gone With The Wind. The Portieres Dress, the Burgundy Ball Gown, the Green Embroidered Dressing Gown were all restore somewhat to their previous glory and will be on display in 2014 for the 75th Anniversary of the movie. Unfortunately, Scarlett's Wedding Dress, and the Blue Peignor with Fox Trim (the gown Scarlett was wearing when Bonnie falls from her horse and dies) could not be saved.
