I have seen a sadly few number of period dramas. I know for sure what two are and I have a guess as to one:
#2 is Emma from the 1995 version of Emma with Ramola Garai
#5--my guess is Little Women, probably Jo.
#7 is Anne from Anne of Green Gables produced by Kevin Sullivan.

Rae said...

Oh my goodness. I said the 1995 Emma in my comment. I meant 2009; I lose track because so many Jane Austen films are made in 1995. Oops. Sorry.

Faith said...

Sadly I couldn't guess all of them but here are the ones I think I know. I feel really certain about #11 at least!

Dress #2 Emma from Emma 2009
Dress #4 Jane Enyre in the latest Jane Eyre film
Dress #5 Jo March in the '90s Little Women with Winona Ryder
Dress #7 Anne Shirley in Anne of Green Gables
Dress #11 Sybil in Downton Abbey

Faith said...

#2 Emma in Emma 2009.
#3 I'm guessing Jane Eyre in the latest Jane Eyre film
#4 Jo March in Little Women with Winona Ryder
#7 Anne Shirley in Anne of Green Gables

I did badly at this. I feel as if I should know dresses one and two. I think two is one of Molly's dresses from Wives and Daughters but I don't know for sure. And I know I've seen one, I just can't remember.
