The Costumes of Anne With An E

The recent CBC adaptation of the iconic Anne of Green Gables series is more visceral than other versions we have seen. It tackles themes like bullying and being an outsider which a child like Anne, having grown up in orphanages and foster homes, would surely have experienced. The realistic interpretation extends to the costumes. The video below shows the care taken by costume designer Anne Dixon with every stitch, hem, and pleat to recreate the world of Anne.

The series, now streaming on Netflix in the US, stars Amybeth McNulty and a more authentic Anne you will never see. The scenery will make you want to move to PEI. Check out the trailer:

Don't confuse it with the recently released version starring Martin Sheen. This one is so much better.
