] ] Now there's a letter I meant to write to Victoria and never did...those aren't Austen styles at all. They're ten to fifteen years later--more sort of George Eliot styles. Why couldn't they have either made real Austen dresses, or used those dresses and employed somebody else's quotes instead?
I'm so glad you pointed out that the dresses were inaccurate! I was rather confused that the dresses they showed looked nothing like the dresses in the Austen movies- I'm thinking S&S (w/ Emma Thompson). I had assumed that the movie costumes weren't authentic, but apparently Victoria was confused. That explains it. Thanks again!
