Needless to say, I’m absolutely thrilled about a soon to be released movie called “The Dressmaker”, with Kate Winslet, which is scheduled for release in the US September 23rd (released in Australia in 2015).


Here is a movie trailer:



Based on the best-selling novel by Rosalie Ham, THE DRESSMAKER is a bittersweet, comedy-drama set in early 1950s Australia. Tilly Dunnage (KATE WINSLET), a beautiful and talented misfit, after many years working as a dressmaker in exclusive Parisian fashion houses, returns home to the tiny middle-of-nowhere town of Dungatar to right the wrongs of the past. Not only does she reconcile with her ailing, eccentric mother Molly (JUDY DAVIS) and unexpectedly falls in love with the pure-hearted Teddy (LIAM HEMSWORTH), but armed with her sewing machine and incredible sense of style, she transforms the women of the town and in doing so gets sweet revenge on those who did her wrong


If you’ve already read this book and/or seen this movie, I hope you’ll share your perspective.  Just looks like a fun movie that many sewing and quilting enthusiasts would enjoy.

  1. I loved it and watched it twice …. Unexpected parts all the way through and wonderful australian characters portrayed. Great costumes, great acting and great story.

  2. I am so getting the book and just gotta see it. I usually read the book first, but can’t make my mind up on this one. Any suggestions either way?
    Thanks so much for sharing this with us.
