Victorian Reveries

I've been searching the internet during free time to see possible Scarlett dresses. I was looking particularly for this costume for Little Women (1991?) designed by Academy award winner for Costume Design, Colleen Atwood. Materials were gathered from vintage shops. This scene where an adult Amy March is in Paris, shows an elegant and soft day dress which I think would go well with the dolls. Notice the embroidery and the veiled hat which hides her face. The paper parasol is also a nice touch to this costume. Notice too the little combs on the side of the hair and the elaborate hairstyle given to the doll.  It is hard to find the time for detail though. Above, the pink day dress in the parlor is also soft and rich. I surmise this is some kind of China silk. Wish this could be done. But still waiting for the Tonner GWTW  2010 release on the 29th. There still is nothing like having your own OOAK.  And I think these dresses would make an idyllic Victorian portrait.
