My Next Project/The Results

Emma's pink archery dress and green picnic dress tied with the most votes.
So, I'm going to start with Emma's archery dress. There aren't very many good pictures of this dress online, so I had to watch that part of the movie to figure this dress out. The neckline, has lace along the edge sewn on top rather then underneath. The bodice has four darts (two on each side), that was one thing wasn't sure about because in pictures it looked more like the front of the bodice and skirt were all one piece.
While searching pictures I found this blog that has a tutorial for the hair style that Emma had when she was wearing that dress. Some of you are probably familiar with it.
I'm also, looking for a brooch to complete the outfit. I found one on etsy that might work, but its a little more then I wanted to spend. So I'm thinking of making my own...

This is the fabric I have picked out. 
In the picture and in the movie the striping looks to be a darker pink but during the archery scene you get a close up of her sleeve and the stripes are white.
The brooch
The brooch, I determined has two chains that dangle down, one of them has a clamp of sorts to hold her dress up a bit and the other is decoration.
