I used to watch this movie all the time when I was younger...but it's really hard to find now for some reason. I finally found a used VHS copy online and I watched it for the first time in years the other night...and yep, I still love it. And I still love the costumes. Now I want to knit a sweater even more!

These are the only pictures I could find online:

I hope they come out with a DVD one of these days...Have any of you seen it?
I just love the clothes in the 1940's. Especially in Wales and Ireland. We need to bring this style back. ;) I'm going to do it! Sweet knitted cardigans with skirts. I think it might already be in style... but I'm so out of the fashion loop these days I don't even know.

Costume Studies

I know I said I was going to start doing two costume studies a month (one Elizabeth Swann, one Robin Hood) but I just can't seem to find the time around moving into our new house and working. So I'm putting them on hold a little while longer until I'm settled.
My sewing corner is coming along nicely though! I'll post pictures when I finish moving everything in. :)
And then, hopefully, I'll start having some fun sewing projects to talk about. :)

Things I hope to try...

With no sewing machine working it's been all about knitting lately. I really want to try to make a sweater this winter...but I'm a little intimidated by the thought. But I think I can maybe do it...
I also think it would be fun to try to make some socks. They intimidate me too.
I've been making fingerless gloves like mad. I got a little tired of them so I took a break last night and started on a Christmas present. But you can't see that until after Christmas. ;)
I'm getting excited about making things to wear this winter. Don't you just love warm things?

A Series of Unfortunate Events...

Hello Friends!
I'm sorry I've been so absent seems when one thing decides to break, everything does. Thus my lap top is not working and I've somehow offended the feeling of two sewing machines resulting in neither of them working for me. So I have been knitting here and there but mostly getting our new house ready to be moved into. I'm really quite excited about setting up sewing in a more permanent place. I'm trying to figure out just how I'm going to set it up. But that's all part of the fun. :)

So at the moment I'm up to my elbows in painting my bedroom and I shall hopefully be able to show lovely pictures one of these days. It's quite different from my usual style but I think it's going to be quite nice in the end.

Hopefully I'll get sewing machine working as well so I can get back to some projects I was in the middle of. Oh dear. Now you see why I hand sew. ;)


Although I continually talk about movie costumes on this blog, I am not a movie reviewer. Not all the films I discuss are recommended and I do not choose to review weather they are appropriate or not for the simple fact that every person's standards are different. Something that is fine for me may be offensive to some one else and visa versa. If you would like to look into the appropriateness of a title, I recommend I have not seen all the movies I discuss, and am simply interested in the art of clothes in film. I will leave you to decide for yourself if you will watch the movie or not.
