A New Project is Cooking!

Shall I tell you?

Shall I not tell you?

Shall I leave you in suspense?

Hm.........

Okay, I'll tell you.

I am putting together a collection of screencaps from "Wives and Daughters", dissecting the different dresses, and, where applicable, giving ideas and resources on how to recreate them. So far I have seven of Molly's outfits done. I would like to do all of her outfits (including coats, bonnets, etc.!), Cynthia's, Hyacinth's, and Lady Harriet's dresses. (Possibly some of the other characters too; it all depends on what I feel like. ;-) )

So keep checking in to see what's up! NOTE: I was working on a mock-up for my Regency spencer but am kind of "sticked" ("stuck" in my language), trying to figure out how to alter the front. :-S We'll see what happens. I also need to get started on an Edwardian blouse for a friend. :-)

I'd be glad to send you some pictures if you'd like. Just let me know if you need any! I am very excited about your new project, the costumes in Wives and Daughters are so pretty!

Caroline, I have gotten screencaps of all of Molly's outfits from Episodes 1 and 3 and am half-way through Episode 2. I have some of Cynthia's too. Have you already taken some screencaps from W&D?

P.S. Working on these screencaps has helped me to appreciate your work on "Mrs. Darcy's Dressing Room" even more!! It's a lot of work!! :-D

I LOVE the dresses in Wives and Daughters - I'm just not sure if I can get them to be practical for everyday wear ... Hmm ... Maybe I'll try one ... :D

To the KING be all the glory!

I'm looking forward to the screencaps! I have not seen W&D but have seen some of the costumes on In Timely Fashion and they are so pretty.

Hope you get your spencer problems resolved! I've been waiting with excitement to see it all done. :)
