Her dresses were all simple materials, yet the styles and colors were so elegant.
She wore a lot of light blue dresses, probably because they look so good on her!
This shawl has a pretty burgundy border, with fringe.
And finally it is the dress that I admired and made. It really looks stunning on her.
It is interesting to note how the trim ends at the shoulder seam. I didn't realize this, and made mine go all the way to the waist.
And then look at this, it is another dress with almost the exact same trimming!
I wonder why the costumer did this?
At the beginning of the movie Esther's hair was always pulled back into a lovely chignon, however after she gets smallpox, her hair is always left over her ears. I don't like this style very much, but it is an interesting change to note.
Coming up next... Lady Deadlock. If you've seen the movie feel free to chime in with your impressions of the costumes. If you haven't--go and watch it quickly!
