Maggie May’s Historic Clothing has been commissioned to create children’s clothing for the independent filmDreadful Sorrybeing filmed in South Carolina in March 2011. Here are a few quick snapshots of the first three garments just before they were packed for shipment.
Dress for toddler with removable collar and Boy’s 1850s style trousers and waistcoat over a homespun shirt
This dress is only a size 3T, but is shown on a larger size form
Without giving too much away about the story line, the toddler girl’s dress and boy’s suit are going to be worn by “ghostly” apparitions- thus the pale blue and grey muted overtones. The pink dress is intended for an older surviving child and is meant to evoke sense of sweet innocence.
I am in the process of completing the last garment this week- an 1860s era zouave suit in muted purple and lavender. I will post images as soon as it is finished as well!
