Dressing the Bennet Sisters

The stage version of Pride and Prejudice will debut in the Actors Theatre of Louisville, October 2 - November 8. Costumer Marcia Dixcy Jory discusses how she created the costumes for the play, which her husband, Jon Jory, will direct. Describing the challenges of creating realistic costumes that are not too bulky or too thin, she says: " There are corsets, petticoats, ruffles and lots of shoes, and the dresses have complicated sleeves and bodices…. There are hair combs, jewelry, fans and other accessories -- and the costumes have to be rigged for fast changes."
