making sense

gorgeous Sense and Sensibility artwork by Skottie Young

Austen time again, I'm afraid!  This November sees the 200th anniversary of the publication of Sense and Sensibility.  It's not most people's favourite of her novels, and I include myself in that, but I do think the relationship between the Dashwood sisters is really interesting.  In homage to Janey-Jane I shall be re-reading the novel.

Popped along to the fashion museum a couple of weeks ago and what should I find but costumes from the fab 1995 (Emma Thompson and Kate Winslet) Sense and Sensibility production.  Brilliant.  These included Marianne's wedding gown.  You can't really see in the pictures, but the main body of that dress was dotted with tiny foil stars.  Just lovely.

The awkward moment when Willoughby totally blanks you
So, who's up for a 2011 Sense & Sense re-read?


  1. the first pic is stunning! sense and sensibility is second only to northanger in my heart, but mr willoughby is my number one austin man, he brakes my heart every time... *starts routing for book* xxx

  2. Eeee, I am a huge Sense and Sensibility fan! I have seen that film far to many times but I can't get enough of it! The costumes are just darling :)

  4. I really love this movie, I've seen it many times but still i can not get enough of it. The costumes are outrageous
