Emma's Rose-Colored Dress with a Green Sash

I LOVE this dress of Emma's! :-D I also love the scene in which she wears it. :-)

The side-front:
A good view of the fabric:
The back:
See the design at the hem?
This dress can be made using Sense and Sensibility's Regency Gown pattern, using the instructions for making it with darts.

Emma's Light Green Dress

This is probably my least favorite of Emma's dresses. I think it is kind of ugly.

An up-close:
The back:

Full-length:

A dress like this can be made using Sense and Sensibility's Romantic Era dress pattern.

Emma's Blue Apron

 I really need to make an apron like this...


 Here's the back:
A view of the side-back:
Another view of the front:

I am thinking about trying to re-create this apron.  I'll let you know how it turns out when I do. :-)

Emma's Cloak

"Ah-ah-ah!! Miss Woodhouse's cloak must not be crushed!"

She seems to be wearing a red shawl on over it. At least, that's what I make of it.

Up-close.

The back.

Emma's Blue/Green Jumper

I've heard some people call it green. I think it's blue. In any case, here it is:

The front. It seems like there are buttons only on the bodice, perhaps just for decoration...

...as it seems to button down the back as well.

An up-close of the trim. It reminds me of Molly's blue jumper.
Sense and Sensibility's Regency Gown pattern can probably be altered to make this jumper.

Emma's Tan Spencer Jacket

I love this spencer jacket! :-D

Here is a sideback view:

Emma's Orange-Flowered Dress

This may be one of my favorite of Emma's dresses. The only thing that bugs me about it is that it seems too toned-down for a wedding. :-P

Hemline:
I am not sure how to make a dress like this; I'm really not sure at all about that front gathering detail. Please feel free to share ideas!! :-D

Emma's Tan Jumper and White Blouse

Silly Emma! :-)

Note the darts in the front, like in most of her dresses.

A closer look at the fabric as well as the blouse.
Here's the back. It looks like it fastens with either hooks-and-eyes or buttons.
Is this the same dress?

This dress can be made using Sense and Sensibility's Regency Gown Pattern but following the instructions for making it into a bodiced petticoat (just without the boning). :-) And don't forget the sash. ;-)

Emma's Green Spencer Jacket



I like this dark green Spencer jacket of Emma's (left). (At least, I think it's green.)

It appears to be darted in the front; I'm not sure what's up with the fastening.

This jacket can be loosely based off of Sense and Sensibility's Spencer and Pelisse pattern.

Emma's White Dress

Emma wears this dress towards the beginning. Here she is supposed to be about 14 years old and trying to match up her sister and Mr. Knightly's brother.

It seems to be a white-on-white print, and it has a green-and-yellow [ugly] plaid sash.

It looks like the back fastens with hooks and eyes.
The skirt has two tucks at the hem.

This dress can probably be reproduced using Sense and Sensibility's Regency gown pattern, with some alterations (such as darting the front instead of gathering it. Here are some directions on how to do that.)

Emma's Brown Pelisse

Emma's Brown Pelisse...


The back:

It's a VERY LONG COAT!!

This pelisse can be made using Sense and Sensibility's Spencer and Pelisse Pattern with some alterations, if you want it to fasten with just the one button like Emma's does.

Emma's Robe

Here is Emma's night robe. As the camera gets closer and closer, we see more details of her robe, so I am just going to post them in order for you to study.

Emma's Green Dress

Emma wears this dress at the Christmas party.

This is the best I could get of the back...
