It weighs a million pounds. We had to make a special bench to use on set for Claire to lean on in between takes.
She is tightly corseted, and the dress fits like a glove. She is not going anywhere.
There is a translucent border that covers another couple of inches above the linen gown and stomacher. unfortunately, it is so delicate that taking the cloak off and on, during all the takes, almost destroyed it. The reason she is more “bare”, than we planned.
