    At first I thought the red thing was a lobster, now I'm guessing it's a stylized tree. But why are all these ladies wearing their Halloween sweater out of season?

    It does, however, speak to the idea that Lorimar/Warner Brothers/whoever owns the place has an expansive wardrobe department who saves things for a long time. You'd think they would have periodic auctions or consignment shops dedicated to getting rid of all this stuff after a period of time, but this is not the first time I've seen postings online about articles of clothing that pop up in film/TV projects many years apart. The five-year gap on this fugly sweater is noteworthy, but not unique.

    I found two promotional pictures of Abby and Laura wearing this sweater in Season 5 - and we recently watched Season 10 - the episode Ellen wore it... This sweater looked famliar for me. ;)

    I dunno
    Wow, normally when they re-use stuff it's less distinct stuff like a little black dress or something like that.

    Someone must've liked that sweater to pull it out five years later.

    What catches my attention the most is the situation with DM and CM both wearing it (or, perhaps two copies of one design) within two episodes of each other. TV shows (especially the big-budget shows like these) keep very meticulous records of who wore what and in which episode. There is an entire wardrobe team who archive the items, keep records of purchases and such since the wardrobe budget represents a HUGE chunk of money for the studio. The folks in wardrobe made a huge blunder if both actresses unintentionally appeared onscreen in this "same" sweater so close in episode order. The collage depicts CM wearing it in a scene, but the photo of DM might just be a photo taken of her on location wearing the sweater. Maybe she just borrowed it to wear because it was cold while waiting to shoot. :D Without being able to view that episode, I don't know if she ended up being filmed in it.

    I've seen BTS videos of TV shows' wardrobe departments, and every item typically has an index card attached to its hanger just to keep all that information, and each character gets their own rack (or two) of clothing labelled with the character's name just to make sure such overlaps don't happen. As for 'Ellen' wearing it years later, I assume all of the older stuff no longer being used by the leads gets transferred to a larger collection used for the recurring players and guest stars...or perhaps even loaned out to other shows filming under the same production company.

    What surprises me is the fact that no secretary on "Dallas" wore the same sweater...They were used to get the leftovers...Spelling had the fame for being cheap but Lorimar had to wait for Travilla to spend money on clothes...
