Just went out to the cape to see this yesterday. I can't even EXPLAIN how fantastic I thought it was! Wonderful story. A strong woman (well, the queen, I should hope so!), intrigue, drama, fantastic romance. Also GORGEOUS dresses :) Very entertaining movie. I'm so glad that I saw it. Highly recommended for people who like either period pieces, romances, or both!
Unfortunately, we went to a fabric store afterward and I had to be dragged out before I spent an obscene amount of money on fabric for making myself a Victorian dress :P Which has always been my favourite clothes era, and the movie didn't help with my self-restraint. Why on earth would I need a costume like that? Oh, I would love it though :D
Check out some of the dresses
Since I can't afford 16 yards of fabric to make one of these dresses, I might make one for one of my (grandmother's) dolls. Or maybe an American Girl.
I have designed a cocktail dress that is based on a Victorian ball gown, maybe I should actually try and make a pattern for it.
Anyway :) Yes, go see it.
