How to nail Greta Gerwig's Little Women look

Published on 22 January 2020 1 min read

In celebration of Greta Gerwig's Little Women, we've rounded up some of our favourite sewing, knitting and embroidery patterns inspired by the film, so we can all channel a little more Meg, Jo, Beth and Amy.

It wasn’t just the powerhouse dialogue, gorgeous musical score and tenacious female performances that had us swooning over Greta Gerwig’s adaptation of Louisa May Alcott’s Little Women. Legendary costume designer Jacqueline Durran’s spell-binding ensemble of kitsch just ‘thrown-together’ fashions had us weak at the knees!

The film’s late 19th century apparel brings an eclectic infusion of feminist New Radical (think Jo’s bohemian tomboy shirts and rustic tweed) with flourishes of heirloom embroidery and New England romance.

Gerwig’s reimagining of this beloved novel is inspiring us all to covet our wardrobes with handmade shawls, Massachusetts inspired embroidery, rustic bohemian apparel and accessories that can easily give a touch of Meg, Jo, Amy and Beth to your current ensemble. Take your pick from our round up of Little Women inspired craft projects!
