Abbie Cornish as Fannie Brawne reads a letter from her beloved Keats while wearing an indigo hued linen dress lost in a field of blue flowers.
nyum nyum - Ben Whishaw as 19th century poet, John Keats
The different linens used in the film alone was enough to make my heart stop, but this triple pleated collar... sent me over the edge!

This is another peasant dress I made today using the Elizabeth Claire pattern, only I used a solid panel for the skirt rather than sewing strips. I also used elastic bobbin thread for the arms. The fabric came from Joann Fabrics and I am totally in love with the combination. The main fabric has little people making gingerbread houses and other sweets. Christmasy. The fabric I used for the sleeves remind me of peppermint swirls. I love the gold glittery dots on the chocolate brown bodice fabric. And that pink sash... oh! Scrumptious!
Tip: Did you know you can carefully singe the ends of ribbon with a lighter and it won't fray?
