Joanne Woodward's Oscar DIY.

Did you know that actress Joanne Woodward 
made her own dress for the 1957 Oscars!?
{ Joanne Woodward with her husband Paul Newman & of course her Oscar statue }

Mmmm hmmm- true story! 

She paid a little over $100 for the materials & handmade it in her barn.
(Yes the photo is B&W,  but the dress was green)
& do you want to know the best part? 
She won the Best Actress Oscar for The Three Faces of Eve that very year...
What a bonus

Will you be watching the Oscars this weekend?
