Molly's Red Striped Gown

This dress appears in the last episode of Wives and Daughters, when Roger returns and when she visits the Towers. What lovely flowers! :-)

In each scene that we see Molly in this dress, she wears a chemisette with it, so we don't get a good view of the actual collar.

However, we see this same dress worn by Fanny in Little Dorrit. Here we get a good view of the bateau neckline:
Fanny also gives us a view of the back:Here is a long view on Molly. Now that's a long skirt! :-)

Here you can see the cuffs on the sleeves:
Here are In Timely Fashion's thoughts on this gown. I think one can combine the instructions there with Sense and Sensibility's Romantic Era Gown pattern to recreate this dress. Thank you, Caroline from Mrs. Darcy's Dressing Room, for the screencaps of Fanny Dorrit!
