Costumer's Quarterly,

Published in association with the Internatonal Costumer's Guild,

featured an article on Judy in  Vol 3, No 3/4 Winter/Spring 1990 (pgs 25-28)

Please note that the author of this article was Carl Coling, who also took the photos featured. He was uncredited in this issue, due to an oversight, but was informed of the error by Judy Evans and a correction was made in the following issue. We are happy to set that record straight.

Note: Judy had not seen this issue until now, and remarks that the picture of the crew at the end of the article "is amazingly incorrect in identifying us".   We are happy to set that record straight also.

"Far left is Parker Poole - not an assistant designer, there was not one on the series.  Parker was a mens set dresser and toward the end of the series when Ron was in bad health he assisted Ron Hodge.  Next was Mary Taylor, my women's costume supervisor, then myself as designer, then far right Ron Hodge, my mens costume supervisor."

Many heartfelt thanks to Judy for kindly taking photos of her beautiful sketches,
and for allowing them to be displayed for the enjoyment of all B&B fans in The Treasure Chambers!


The sketches on this page all measure 11" X 15" ( 28cm X 38cm) and are all drawn with markers made by Chart Pak.  

"When a new script came out I had usually just a couple of days to do all the sketches and designs for the new show,
so my usual style of ink and watercolor was impractical," she explained.

'Judy was extremely talented as a sketch-costume illustrator with a wonderful theatrical pen and pencil graphic style.
Judy's sketches always had a stylish flourish to the illustration, and a very clean silhouette.'

Sincere thanks to the many fans who supplied images of the costumes in their care.
Some costume images are missing. If anyone knows of their whereabouts, or can supply an image, please contact me.
