DID YOU KNOW...?Rebecca Herbst (Elizabeth Webber) has designed her own Emmy dresses every year since joining General Hospital.
Not only has she created her own Daytime Emmy wear, but has also designed gowns for Natalia Livingston (ex-Emily) and Kimberly McCullough (Robin.)
Rebecca calls her designs, Liberty Designs.
"I’ve always been interested in designing and fashion, and I was an ice skater for twelve years. And my mother used to make all my competition dresses. So as a wee little girl I would take all the leftover material, and cut holes in them and stick them on my dolls. So I started just playing around with material when I was very little.
And then when I graduated high school, I asked for a sewing machine, because I realized that being only five two and more on the petite side, that everything I buy has to be altered. Everything has to be hemmed, or taken in. It’s very hard for me to find clothing.
And so I figured my mom doesn’t have the time to sit there and fix all my clothes, so I decided it’d be a good thing for me to learn. So I got a sewing machine for my graduation, and I’ve just been playing around with it ever since."
Rebecca has received two Daytime Emmy nominations and won a Soap Opera Digest Award.
