I think those are lovely buttons. :) Flowers and or leaves would be a very dryad-like addition. What colors were you thinking of using for the embroidery? Shades of green?

Thanks Meltintalle, I was thinking shades of green and brown. I'd love to make some more and I have some ideas for a Nightdress for Harfang and that sort of thing.

Ooh, I forgot about her sleeping and Harfang and thus needing a nightdress! Sounds very pretty!

I think most of Jill's clothes should be simplistic. I mean, the Narnians wouldn't give Jill a dress fit for a queen, just something they had that they thought would fit her. The Harfang dress would be bulky and awkward (being made by a giant for a human), but pretty elaborate.

^Good points. Harfang seems like it will be pretty on Jill but almost too fussy and a relief to get out of- especially after one has come up from the dirty underground and has the chance to change into a clean, fresh Narnia dress. :)

Dove Wings on Polyvore made a set for Jill's uniform. So I thought I'd post it!

I just finished reading the thread, and I really like most of the ideas and drawings! I'd really like to see Jill have some more Narnian dresses, but I also don't want her to be too much like Lucy or Susan. More of a new Narnia style, if you know what I mean...

And then, as far as the uniform goes, I'm DoveWings on Polyvore, so that's taken care of. :p

I don't see shorts as being acceptable for school girls back in the early 40's. I could be wrong though.

Well, it was a co-ed school, which might have made them more likely to wear shorts. Also, I thought it said somewhere that she wore shorts. But I could be wrong.... hang on, I'll check and see.... Yeah, it does. Chapter four, paragraph 6:
She changed back into sweater and shorts-- there was guide's knife on the belt of the shorts that might come in handy

But they're just as likely to change that for the movie as to keep it. :p

OK!
I have been thinking about Jill's costumes ALOT
I personally think that:
School Uniform:
- White, rounded collar blouse
- Grey Jumper/ Cardigan with buttons up to collar (Would be open in Narnia, buttoned in England)
- Grey skirt to just above the knee
- white socks and brown/ black short boots

The only color of Narnian dresses that havent been done are Red and Yellow.... Thoughts? :ymhug:

Girls in the summer certainly wore shorts in the 1950s. Photos of my mum as a young lady showed shorts worn for summer leisure.
I think the shorts would be almost down to the knee, perhaps more of a cullotte, but I like the idea of their being rather baggy army-style ones! (awful old pictures from The Famous Five, or my dad's old shorts he wore when I was a kid!)

My mistake. Yes, you're correct. Jill is described as wearing shorts. Doesn't SC take place in the early to mid-1940's?

I think Jill does wear longer type shorts....in the BBC production Camilla Power looked liked she was wearing some really long shorts (oxymoronic that is). And I think SC is set during Autumn 1942 (why Jill would wear shorts when it's chilly?...but then she has the long stockings on....).

I just watched the BBC SC mini-series several weeks ago and Camilla Powers wears a short skirt, not shorts.

Here is my take on all Jill's outfits. I'm Sorry if they take a while to come up. There are three outfits on a page, and the last page is hair. Some of the edges got cut off.

Those are really lovely! I can totally see Jill in all of them. :)
