I finally watched Crimson Peak yesterday. Some parts scared the bejeezus out of me. It also reminded me of some classic horror/Gothic/suspense things, kind of Hitchcock meets Gaslight meets V.C. Andrews meets the Brontes. I loved the design. The sets and costumes were glorious. I am especially fond of this gown:

I read that the pleating in the costumes was all hand done and in some scenes you can see the basting stitches for the pleats left in, I think on one of her nightgowns. I like the pale yellow contrasted with the black trim. It's just super awesome.

It looks like my new Regency blue print ensemble will be hand-sewn. Not my first choice, but my mom has been using the sewing machine to make costumes for the school musical, and I wanted to get started yesterday, so I just decided to hand sew. So far, the petticoat seams are sewn and one pocket slit is hemmed. My mom's school musical is Beauty and the Beast this year and I was also helping her with that. I drafted up some hoods for the Beast and a couple of wolves and cut out the hood pieces in faux fur. That fur gets EVERYWHERE! I think I even ate some of it. ;p

I want to see this movie so bad! I just need to find some time to do it. The costumes look amazing!

Between the incredibly detailed costumes and Tom Hiddleston, you'll love it!

I like that dress too! The pleats would be daunting though!

Yes. This is why we need a workshop full of magical sewing elves, or sewing mice!
