Danielle's Work Dress
Here are the images of this costume that I found online.
Some of them came fromThe
Realm, Drew-Barrymore.org, Rivendell

Costume Analysis & Making of Hints
Danielle wears this gown for a great deal of the movie. It appears to
deep green or dark teal color, possible a linen, maybe a wool. Suzanne
image of Danielle picking up the apples also shows that the back of the
at least is box pleated."
From some of the pictures, we can see that it has several parts:
- A white long-sleeved chemise with a drawstring scoop neck.
- A separate green under-bodice top (see this picture) that stops below the bust, and appears
lace up the sides (see this pic)
||The underbodice appears to have a diamondshaped pattern.
- A gown that laces up the front that goes over the under-bodice.
of the gown has gold trim on it. It's unclear from the photos how
attaches to the skirt in front. I'd have to watch the movie again
- Gauntlets that cover the forearm and the upper arm and are
to each other with string, and attached to the gown with
string (see this
pic and this pic). They are also
tied at the wrist.
Here is a John William Waterhouse painting that may have inspired
this costume! It is called The Flower Picker.
|| This image, from http://www.cosprop.co.uk/, shows the
art that looks to have inspired the work gown, and some swatches from the
blue library gown!
One pattern suggestion was Simplicity 7756. It would have to be adapted
