What I would wear if I could...

Live in the 1830s.......Well I probably wouldn't wear the gloves or use the paraosl today, but you get the idea:)
I created this collection with polyvore and all these items I found on pinterest.

Bleak House

I watched it for the first time, over the course of a couple of days with my mom and my dad sat down with us the first night, he still has a few more episodes to finish. I don't really like Charles Dickens stories to much, but after seeing Bleak House I must say that I like it the best and I love the dresses of course :)
There was one important detail that didn't make sense to me though. How did everyone who read Lady Dedlocks letters know that she had a child when Nemo didn't even know? I if he didn't know then it couldn't have been written in them! I'm going to have to read the book to figure this part out, unless one else can explain to me/knows the answer?:)

I  think I like this one out of all Esthers dresses the best.

My mom and I liked Lady Dedlocks main green dress best.

Moving on to Emma's Picnic Dress

I don't know when I'll do this dress yet as I need to sell some dresses before I buy more fabric:) But here are my plans.
 I picked out some green silk taffeta and I am going to use embroidered lawn as the overlay. Then there is the flyaway trim around the neckline, I'm not sure what I am going to do for that yet. I'm having a hard time finding some, I found one that I like but it was around $40 a yard!! I did find one possibility on Martha Pullen's online store....
