Underpinnings :)

I'm so in love with Maria's underpinnings in The Secret of Moonacre. I finally watched this movie on YouTube awhile back because it seems like they aren't going to release it in the US and I got tired of waiting. It was a bit of a disappointment as it strayed quite a lot from the book, which I loved. But it was still worth watching for all the amazing costumes!

I just love all the different fabrics that look quite vintage:
I also love her blue corset. Inspires me to finish my corset...I know I know...I say that a lot. ;)

Anyway...I'm quite obsessed with underpinnings already but I thought these were really awesome and different. :) I think it would be so fun to have an underpinnings tea party one of these days. Underpinnings are just so pretty and it's such a shame they don't get to be seen. Well I hope you all are having a great Summer so far! I'm pretty busy helping some friends get ready for a wedding this week so I wont be sewing or posting much. Have a lovely week!


  1. how lovely!
    I saw the movie 2 months ago
    and i really loved the story and the clothes too

  2. OH I had no idea you could watch it on you tube! So doing that. bummer though, that they strayed from the book at all, it's such a perfect story. But the costumes are indeed drool worthy! and I think your underpinnings tea is a lovely idea. plan it far in advance so I can schedule to be there please. :)

  3. oh i love her ruffley bustle! happiness! :D And yes yes yes to the underpinnings tea! Most definitely!

  4. I just watched the movie on youtube! I liked it. But I haven't read the book. I will need to do that soon. The costumes were simply gorgeous! I loved them. And I also watched sense and sensibility recently and totally thought of this blog! Merrianne's wedding dress is to die for!

  5. I agree with you the costumes are amazing but it was sad that the strayed so far from the book.



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.
