I was searching for fabric prints by designer, and I saw an Anne of Green Gables Collection by Riley Blake. I don't think most of the colors suit me, but it you love Shabby Chic colors (soft, muted blues, creams, pinks, and greens) and bookish stuff (there are QUOTE
print fabrics!), you ought to check this out here
. And each print appears to be available in a few colors.
Also, I found out awhile back that Sullivan Entertainment produced an Anne of Green Gables Wedding Dress Pattern, and here it is
(you can probably also find it on ebay and etsy from time to time). Now, this is for the movie, not the book, so the wrong time period for book,* but the 1910's had some lovely styles (think of Downton Abbey).
*What is it with messing with the time period, what was wrong with placing Anne in the correct time period? Her sons fought in WWI; Anne was born about 1965 (the books keep track of her age and Jem's, so you can count back from 1914 to see how old), so Anne of Green Gables occurs in about 1976, which is far earlier than the first miniseries . . . and the new miniseries sets the story . . . why? And oh, my will I have more to say about what I've heard about the miniseries . . . actually, I really need to describe my issues with the first miniseries.
