    So, um, I was supposed to be cleaning the house and I accidentally found myself rewatching all the episodes. Was watching people other than the main-action and I would LOVE to see close-ups of Laoghaire’s bodices (they’re all lovely) and WILLIE’S TREWS! Those are trews right? Right after the rape attempt with the redcoats when he’s standing with Claire on the hilltop?

      I would also love to see close ups of the sleeves on Claire’s wedding dress. In some pics it looks almost raw edges at the ends and some of the ruffles on the arms but in some it looks like a carefully scalloped hand sewn treatment. Or it could be just the way the crinkled fabric looks after doing a rolled hem. I drove myself nearly mad trying to see it rewinding and pausing and fast forwarding. Forget about Sam’s great ass! I wanna know how the sleeves were done! (Only kidding) oh and what fabric was used for the sleeves?

      Have you seen the sleeve closeups I posted?

      Sorry, I looked in the wrong place! I read all the posts under the dress, the wedding and Claire, but didn’t read the “general costuming discussions”. My bad! I only joined yesterday and should have given myself more time to catch up before I asked questions that had already been answered. So the hems were left raw edged? Thank you so much for giving all the behind the scenes detail. I think every sewer and smocker watching the show wonders how things were made and what fabrics were used. I participated in the 1912 pattern project where they took a years worth of ladies magazines from the era, made patterns from it, and had the resulting patterns tested on 21st century women. There were lovely corsets and corset covers done for that era. Some of the garments were beautiful, but none of them had the richness of detail that this era had. Oh what I wouldn’t give to have an excuse to make a gown from this era. I’ve made corsets but of plain coutil, nothing so elegant as the ones here! Now I can watch the wedding episode again without stopping and rewinding all through the ceremony!
      Thank you again for your generous gift of time! I think you would be surprised at how many of us armchair costumers there are out here, wishing not that they were Claire, but that they were one of the many skilled artisans who toil behind the scenes making Claire’s beautiful clothes!
      My last question – When are the Emmy Nominations announced?
