Samantha, the Dressmaker is the twenty-fourth episode of the second season and the sixtieth series episode of Bewitched. The episode was completed by January 10, 1966.


Samantha is sewing a dress to wear for the evening at a dinner party, and goes to have lunch with her mother Endora in France; they see a dress designer's designs and Samantha later copies them, but this spells trouble when the original designer comes from France to the United States area where the Stephenses live.


Samantha is designing a dress when Endora comes in. She tells Samantha about the lunch she promised she would have with her, convincing her with a statement about time, since Samantha said she needed to get the dress finished by the evening. Endora pops them to Paris, France and whisks Samantha into appropriate attire.

After lunch, Samantha is about to go home, but Endora suggests going to see a dress designer, with the thought that Samantha needs inspiration and looking her best.

Endora and Samantha arrive at the House of Aubert and are told that Aubert is busy. Indignant, Endora freezes them and enters. She and Samantha briefly look over the dresses. Before they leave, Endora magically pulls the chair out from under Aubert, unfreezes them and Aubert falls to the floor.

Later, Samantha finishes the dress while Gladys Kravitz is snooping with her binoculars, telling Abner that Samantha asked her to babysit Tabatha; she immediately says she actually insisted, that Samantha did not want to take advantage of her.

Darrin comes home, and jokes about the dress being better when it is ready. When he is upstairs, she uses her witchcraft to turn it into the dress she saw in Paris. As they leave, Gladys Kravitz is surprised by Samantha's dress.

Darrin and Samantha go to client J. T. Glendon's house for dinner. His wife, Doris Glendon, asks if Samantha has ever been to Paris, seeing that the dress she was wearing did not appear local. Darrin points out that Samantha made it herself, prompting Mrs. Glendon to ask Samantha to make a dress for her. Mrs. Glendon's sister, Ethel Grange, asks for one also.

The next day, Samantha has three dresses to make since Mrs. Kravitz asked for one too. The three ladies come over for their "fitting" and Samantha pretends to memorize their measurements. As soon as the ladies leave, Samantha twitches up the three originals she saw at Aubert's in Paris. When Gladys comes in for something she seems to have forgotten, she is shocked to see three dresses made in ten seconds.



Bloopers and Continuity Errors

  • When Endora freezes everyone at Aubert's, and she and Samantha are looking at the dresses, one of the models blinks.
