just seen the movie, it is indeed a beeeautiful dress, and you get quite a few good shots of it too :D

edit: it's interesting to note the porcelain figure has given her yellow shoes! ;;)

In the movie we see
another English dress for Susan - or American. It's in the beginning while she's writing the letter to Lucy. I've only seen the movie once, and I'm not sure how well my memory holds, but it was pinkish with a small overall pattern in red and (I think) yellow or green. It had short, puffy sleeves, I believe. I like it better then the other dress we see her in.

Susan's_look_a_like how did you find those!? Amazing!

Mrulockia that's a great sketch! Very true to the original (as far as I can remember!) Beautiful job.

That looks very good, Mrulockia. :D

RoseRed, in my initial viewing, I thought that the shoes were beige, but when I saw it again today, I think the shoes might be yellow. :)

The other English/American dress I was thinking of as orange... it buttons down the side with brown buttons (Uh, you can take my colour perceptions with a grain of salt) and has a v-neck with a little turned over collar. I have to admit, I really like the side button detail.

Adeona Google pictures. It took four or five searches to find them.

Mrulockia Great sketch!! It's beautiful and accurate as far as my memory serves me.

I think the stylists for McCall's Archival Pattern series were going for a Susan vibe here...
