Emma Meets Frank Churchill Dress

This cheery yellow dress Gwyneth Paltrow wears in the film "Emma" always inspired me. I finally made a version. :)

Here are some pictures from the film:

My version:

My sleeve isn't drawn up as much as hers...but I still like it. :)


I'm selling this dress in my Etsy shop.

Oh, that's lovely! I have always loved the costumes from the movie Emma. I think you've done a great job reproducing it! :)

My first regency dress was made out of almost that exact fabric, but I hadn't seen these version of Emma then, or I certainly would have done those darling sleeves!
