I seriously love the back of this dress! Great inspiration for the anglaise I’m currently working on.

I haven’t done anything for Film Friday in ages! Let’s start with this reblog :)

The Duchess
This movie was a JOY to watch. The costumes were absolutely magnificent; I may even like them better than those in Marie Antoinette! Everything Georgiana wore - which was a LOT - was gorgeous. An incredible amount of detail went into designing these, from coordinating lining to detail on undergarments. When I watched the film, I had grabby hands: I wanted it all! I love how it is clearly Georgian, yet they threw in some Regency styles towards the end of the movie. I’m thinking pictures are going to speak louder than words, if you have not already seen this, so I’ll just stop here and let you drool :D
