New Creations…

March 19th, 2010

Presenting, my take on Mr Darcy from Pride & Prejudice…

His costume was fun to recreate… it involved lots of patience, lots of hand dying, lots of hand sewing and I am really pleased with the results.

Getting the shape of his hat correct was a little tricky, but I think its quite a convincing shape, I hope his new owner agrees.

If you look carefully, you can see Mr D’s riding crop tucked neatly under his arm… I think it completes his ensemble, my good friend Vicky of NJD made it for me as a special commission and its absolutely perfect!

I was asked by the same client to create a Regency soldier.

Using various reference books on the battle of Waterloo 1815, I was able to recreate a costume of the time.

Adding all of the fringing and gold trim made it a challenging costume, but I love nothing more than a challenge.

The sword and scabbard were made by the very talented Terence Stringer and his web site can be found here.

I really hope you enjoyed looking at the pictures of my dolls… I certainly enjoyed creating them!

    Mr Darcy is for me,
    a gentleman he looks to be,
    the clothes he wears are made by hand,
    and are the finest in the land,
    perhaps one day he will stand near
    a pretty one who’ll love him dear!

    A poet I am not but maybe I have hit the spot! TerryX

  20. [...] In the morning room Mr Darcy stands in the entrance while Mr Wickham stands by the fire. At the back of the room sat at an exquisite table by David Poole is Mary Bennet sketching which is her favourite past time, meanwhile Jane Bennett peeps over her book pretending not to pay too much attention to the arrival of Mr Darcy.
