Hollywood loves sewing. From superhero suits and Renaissance garb, to high-powered business suits and couture gowns, custom-made clothing featuring the work of amazingly talented sewers is all over the silver screen. Moreover, there are a surprising number of scenes devoted to the craft of sewing.
Each Friday in the month of October we are going to a feature a movie clip that has an element of sewing in it. These can be great inspiration for your handmade Halloween creation, or simply more proof at how awesome sewing is.
This week’s clip comes from a scene in The Perils of Pauline, a 1947 musical starring Betty Hutton, who plays a garment sweatshop worker named Pearl White. Pearl eventually becomes a silent film star, and of course drama and comedy ensues. Check out this amazing clip with Pearl singing about her “love” of the sewing machine!
