Costumes in Mr. Selfridge

Aisling Loftus is the actress who plays Agnes Towler, one of my favorite characters in the BBC drama "Mr. Selfridge".

I love the costumes! Glamorous and opulent....but my heart was caught by one which only appears briefly, whenever shop girl Agnes is in her humble home!  It is her "pinny", the Edwardian apron in the print with roses.

I Googled  "Aisling Loftus images" until I found it!

And learned that the same costume had been used in an earlier production of "The Secret Garden"!
I'm glad that costumes are used more than once!
Now to sew some sweet floral dresses for my granddaughters, for spring!

I haven't watched these shows on BBC but I know I would like them. I stopped by to tell you the book that I showed today is....Gidget! Do you remember going to the movies to see Gidget? I loved the very first movie with Sandra Dee best. I didn't even know it was a book first, did you? Sweet hugs, Diane
