Sleepy Hollow / Katrina Van Tassel's Dress
Washington Irving's timeless tale of murder and intrigue is told through the
eyes of director Tim Burton in this 1999 screen adaptation. Ichabod Crane
(Johnny Depp) is a New York detective sent to the town of Sleepy Hollow to
investigate a series of mysterious deaths. With each of the victims found
beheaded, the locals believe the culprit to be none other than the ghost of
the legendary Headless Horseman. Christina Ricci also stars.
This jacket and skirt were worn on screen by Christina Ricci as "Katrina Van
Tassel". They can be seen toward the middle of the film when she and Ichabod
Crane (Johnny Depp) are investigating in the forest. The jacket is light
gray with a sheen to the fabric. The collar is red with red edging along the
lapel, bodice and sleeves. The upper portion of the jacket is designed like
a corset with an off white piece of lace across the top. The lower portion
is long in the back and is lined with a red fabric with gold detailing. The
skirt is long and full and is gray in color with a greenish sheen and a
muted leaf design.
