1995 Pride and Prejudice Costumes

I ran across an interesting article on the costumes in the A&E Pride and Prejudice that I thought some of you might be interested in. You can view it HERE. My, I'd forgotten how much I loved this film. It's been rather neglected as the new one is shorter and therefore easier to watch in an evening.
But really...I love this adaption. :)

I think I may pull it out and watch it today while I work on my regency gown. :)
Also, if any of you are interested in notes on the costumes in this version of Pride and Prejudice, as well as the 2005 adaption, there is a wonderful site HERE.


  1. This must surely be the best ever version of Pride and Prejudice. I cannot believe it was made so long ago - I remember watching it when it first came out.

    And there's never been anyone else to beat Colin Firth's Darcy.

  2. Even though I like the 2005 version this one can't be beat!

  3. Just finished looking at the episodes on youtube. And there is one thing I really would like to know because each time it caught my eye. Mr. Darcy is wearing on several occasions something on the left side ofhis waistband. Have you any idea what it is called and/or what the function of it is?

    Thank you. Elizabeth

  4. This is definitely the best version of P&P. I LOVE IT! I think it's my favorite movie. No, I'm sure it is. So sweet! Yes, the 2005version is good...would be fine, if it wasn't for the old one. (-: So much better, the characters and everything. Compare the Darcy's. The Lady Catherine De Bourgh's. The Elizabeth's. They're all better in the old one! Excuse my rant, this is a favorite subject.

Although I continually talk about movie costumes on this blog, I am not a movie reviewer. Not all the films I discuss are recommended and I do not choose to review weather they are appropriate or not for the simple fact that every person's standards are different. Something that is fine for me may be offensive to some one else and visa versa. If you would like to look into the appropriateness of a title, I recommend I have not seen all the movies I discuss, and am simply interested in the art of clothes in film. I will leave you to decide for yourself if you will watch the movie or not.
