Jane Eyre - copies of 1840s gowns on the screen

I have somehow skipped making 1840s costumes. I've made many gowns from many eras, but not this one. The new movie, Jane Eyre, has inspired me, together with a dance performance we have scheduled for 22 October 2011 at the St Johns Church Spring Fair. The foundation stone for the Anglican Church of St John the Baptist in Reid was laid on 11 May 1841 and the church building was completed in May 1844.
If you wish to attend the performance in October or even join our dance display group, see us on facebook.
Below are a few screen captures from Jane Eyre for costume study. In other parts of this blog I am sharing close-up pictures of antique garments with you so you can see construction methods.
