Ballet Shoes (peter pan collars, floral dresses, white socks)

06 January 08

Did anyone else watch Ballet Shoes, the BBC drama (featuring Emma Watson and her funny eyebrow acting) on Boxing Day? It was quite sweet and christmassy and I was completely coveting the costumes. So much so that I watched it again and made some screencaps just for you (and thus apologise for the crap quality of the stills).

If you're keen to see it, it comes out on dvd this monday in Europe and will be aired on tv in Canada and New Zealand some time in the near future. It is naturally available on your friendly local bittorrent network now ;)

I did watch it and I really enjoyed it. I too loved the costumes. :) Emma Watson’s/Pauline’s dress in the second cap.

I don’t think they’re going to show it over here… The costumes look so pretty!

I watched it on BBC, I loved the character of the little girl who does ballet, it reminded me of how much I need a Tutu skirt

Aw this was a really good adaptation, the clothes too, beautiful. I loved the fact they used Pauline’s black dress for every occasion for every girl by altering it lol

I watched it on Boxing Day and loved it. It’s such a pretty little adaptation. I love the floaty floral dresses and white socks and ribbons and bows and hats. The sets were lovely too.

Thanks for this post- wouldn’t have known nor be able to watch it with your helpful hints. Yes! OMG- love the outfits. Wish I could flit around in them.

I loved the costumes, locations and aesthetics of this programme but I felt that it ended too quickly and abruptly. I think Emma Watson is an embarassingly bad actress but loved the girl who played Posey- She was adorable! Is the book any better?

oooh, i’m excited to see this. i love their hair styles, what fun!

Speaking of bittorrent, do you use a specific program for your downloads? I just got a new macbook and i’m not sure which program i should use :)

I’m assuming the movie’s based on the book about Pauline, Petrova, & Posie, is it true? It looks lovely though, it’s a shame I live in the US.

Clare replied over 12 years ago.

i think i might try to buy this and hope it works on my multi-region dvd player. i have at least 15 Noel Stretfield books, and ballet shoes was my absolute favorite! I read it a million times and it is my number one gift for little girls.

Amy replied over 12 years ago.

the dress she’s wearing in the second photo you can find in Whistles, i REALLY want it. and i also wanted to watch it but i missed it :(

The costumes look excellent! When is it set?

Emma Watson does have a rather strange acting method. Have you ever noticed how her nostrils flare quite a bit (in Harry Potter) when she’s telling him to go and tell Dumbledore (or similar) something. Most bizarre. But hey, she made a mint!

Oh how I want one of those satchels!

Eliza replied over 12 years ago.

oh – this seems like a wonderful movie! the clothes and hairdos were so pretty at that time.

Fenke replied over 12 years ago.

Lovely costumes – especially the Peter Pan collar dress worn by Emma Watson (second pic above), which was later worn by another sister – and the third tried to get into it as well! That era boasted fantastic style.

Oh, and must say your blog is just wonderful. You’re so talented-
