Catherine Morlands Dresses in Northanger Abbey (bbc adptation 2007)

Catherine Morland (as portrayed by Felicity Jones) displays quite a few of different dresses and other garments, most presumably bought when she and Mrs. Allen went on a shopping expedition in Bath-

 

here are a few:

white muslin dress

The first dress we see is her white muslin dress, when she is still at home in Fullerton.

i love how this dress seems to portray Catherine’s simpleness and naivety, it’s very plain but gives lot’s of room for running and collapsing on the ground with her brothers and sisters.

Striped Blue dress with square neckline

Worn when she goes for a ride with John Thorpe, her first evening in bath, a travel dress.

back:

Blue Sprigged Ball gown

Friday, went to the Lower Rooms; wore my sprigged muslin robe with blue trimmings.

this dress matches the books description very well, my only dislike being it makes her bust stick out a bit, but that was the fashion.

here you can see the dress’ blue trimmings-

Nightgown

a plain white cotton nightdress with frills round the neck and arms

 

Ball Gown with Green Trimmings.

worn at the second ball, in which she dances with John Thorpe and Mr Tilney.

 

          

Pink and White Ball Gown-

Worn when she last dances with Mr Tilney, by which time, Isabella is engaged

i particularly like the beading you can see on the bodice.

 

Day Dress with Inlay (cream/damask)

Catherine wears this on the day she spends a happy afternoon in the company of Henry and Eleanor.

Striped Green Day Dress-

worn at Northanger Abbey when she’s writing a letter to Isabella Thorpe.

Blue Day Dress-

worn when she is discovered In Mrs. Tilneys forbidden bedchamber,

 

Ruffled Neckline Blue Check Dress-

worn on her first day back at Fullerton, and underneath a green apron when she tucks her siblings into bed.

 

Blue Day Dress-

worn when Mr Tilney proposes!

 

Other-

Blue and Cream Spencers.

 worn several times throughout the film, and when she is riding with Mr Tilney,

Pink Travel pelisse.

Catherine wears this on her journey from Fullerton to Bath, and back from Northanger Abbey to Fullerton but with a half-cape.

 

Blue Pelisse-

seems to be her favourite, and is worn several times during the film.

 

Bonnet-

i think we can safely say that this is the Bonnet Catherine wears the most.

 

Larger Bonnet 

worn most noticeably when she takes a walk with Eleanor and Mr Tilney.

that is all for now. there we go. i hope to doing more of these in the future!
