Inspired by Emma

I watched Emma yesterday and fell in love all over again with her wardrobe. One of the things I love about this movie is the color pallet. All the pastels are so gorgeous. I love how pretty this movie is. 
 Now I'm quite in the mood for something Regency. (when am I not though?) I have a few plans as soon as I finish my Maid Marian costume!
 I'm also determined to figure out a lace fingerless glove pattern. I love these gloves Mrs and Miss Bates wear.
 I've always been in love with Emma's pink archery dress...oh if only I had pink in my fabric stash! Well, that's a good reason to use my fabric I can buy some. ;)
 Isn't Jeremy Northam the perfect Mr. Knightly? I don't think anyone else could ever play him as well. He just IS Mr Knightly.
Well, I'm off to finish up a project for my grandma and clean house...then maybe I can squeeze in some work on my Maid Marian dress. I'm thinking it may not get finished this month either...but hey! The month isn't over yet! You never know...


  1. I love the costumes in this movie too! SO beautiful.

    Yes, Mr. Northam IS Mr. Knightly. No contest.

    Love you!

  2. Emma is a very inspiring movie. My favorite dress of Emma's is the lovely blue one that she wears during the conversation with Mr. Knightly when he is going to visit his brother. So pretty!

    Agreed--I've seen other versions of Emma, but Jeremy Northam depicts Mr. Knightly better than anyone else.

  3. I love Emma! I haven't seen any of the other versions yet, but I plan to hunt them all down eventually. Anything Jane Austen is swoonworthy!



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.
