in consequence of the missive, On the other hand, penned by Kathleen Glancy
>She might perhaps feel that as she is superior to pretty well every other woman in Highbury she should look the part, and be dressed in rich but tasteful clothes whenever she appeared in public.
Here I can trust Mr Knightley's observation because it is there for him to see instead of guessing, and he sees no such thought on Emma's part. (as I have quoted from CH:5 in my post).
I didn't mean Emma was dowdy in her dress sense - just that she's unfashionable and very provincial thus showing little interest in what's going on in the fashion world.
I can't see how clothes from London can be bought fitting Emma, when she's in Highbury.
If material is bought I still don't see that the author felt it was worth mentioning as to the stitching of it (if we can be told about Harriet's), we see nothing of the sort while the author has clearly led us to believe Harriet's great interest in it.
