Fashion for Fugitives: Bonnie & Clyde on the Small Screen

Looks like a new A & E mini series about infamous duo Bonnie & Clyde is set to air.  I peeked at some of the costume stills circulating online and I see lots of era-accurate knitwear (as shown in the photo of me at the end of the post, I owned a 30s crocheted dress that was very similar in sleeve and colours to the one Bonnie is wearing in the second image).  You can glimpse some more of the costumes in the clip, "Fashion for Fugitives," which is posted on the A & E website.

Wow, I remember that dress - loved it so! :) Looking forward to the show myself, I agree, the costuming looks great so far. Been hooked on "Edwardian Farm" lately, running on TVO here in Toronto (aka Crackville or Drunkardtown, whichever *lol*). There was one on previously called "Wartime Farm" as well, starring the same folks. A British series with two Archeologists and a Historian essentially re-enacting daily life on a farm for whichever time period they are covering. Great series, and nice to see the fashions of the everyday types (as well as the "technology" used) worn on a farm during WWII and the Edwardian period. Looking forward to more.

*sigh* I really need to get in better shape to be able to fit such lovely knitwear as you've shown in your last pic... *LOL*

Can't wait to hear what you think of the "Bonnie and Clyde" program when you've seen it...

Gosh you are stunning in that gorgeous Bonnie dress! I love the 30s striped long line style.
