If you did not read the last post about this movie, I want to clarify a few things about it. The name is misleading I know, but it is really the cutest movie and relitevly clean.
Set in the 1700's Byrne and Strang -two younger sons of aristocrats- are part of a club, the abduction club; it's purpose is to kidnapp heiresses and marry them for their fortune. That would secure their futures and most likely land them with a beautiful bride.
But when Garrett Byrne kidnapp's Miss Catherine Kennedy, he has more to deal with then just a rejection to his proposal; James Strang has kidnapped Catherine's younger sister Anne... and she won't be rescued!
So what is Catherine to do but go along with her headstrong sister, and the two dashing young men that are slowly winning their hearts.
I will tell you the end of the story -as you can not buy the movie in US dvd format-
In the end the girls are 'rescued' and the men are sentenced to hang.
But as they have the rope around their neck, their group of masked friends somehow manage to save them; and James and Garrett ride to sweep their loves off their feet.
And just like the old disney cartoons, they ride off into the sunset.
Like I said a sweet movie :)
You only see this dress at a glance and behind a cloak, but I like the shape of the bodice anyway.
Okay, this is probably the best view of the hem of her blue dress.
NOTE: We don't like the guy here :)
This is one of my favorite of Anne's gowns.
I would like to take a better look at Anne's coat, it looks like the sleeve is tucked up on the inside of the sleeve but drapes on the outside?
The first time the girls meet their prospective 'other's'... and Anne's cape drapes in the back
Here again you can see the ruffle gracing the edge of her coat, probable makes it's way all the way down to the hem.
I wonder were you an find lace like this? I could not see where the bodice comes apart... whatever.
I can't chose which is my favorite gown, probable the blue only because I look yack in yellow ;) And even though I am sewing one for someone, I want to make another of these coats.
Note: If any guy is reading my blog... corsets coming up!!!
I wondered if they would show them in the movie, and I was happy when they did. I always want to see them... always wanting to improve my corset making skills.
Eventually the girls change into comfortable clothes.
I like Catherine's, with the blue skirt and the white shirt... it just looks right.
I REALLY wanted to see more of her cape. I think the 'cape' part is velvet, and the shoulders are a silky fabric.
Catherine's is the only one that gets screen time.
And it seem's that it is a simple silky skirt. At the trial, Anne wears the same cloak and dress. LOVE this one!
If I made Anne's dress, I would not have the tabs on the bottom of the bodice... and I adore Catherine's dress!
