Watching 'American Friends' as I sew a wire hat makes me look forward to returning to the reenacting scene this summer. There are several events that I'm looking forward to attending, and I'm hoping that I'll be able to find the time to make myself some new dresses and accessories. There are so many things that I've been looking forward to creating over the past few years.
Aren't the costumes in this movie just lovely? The costume designer, Bob Ringwood, did a fabulous job on the costumes. For the most part they look very accurate right down to the accessories and hairstyles. I love the sheer dresses with lightweight shawls and the beautiful parasols and antique jewelry. The shape of the skirts is also very nice.
