Fashions of Retribution Part 1: Young Marianne 

We first meet Marianne in chapter 2 of Retribution. 

The year is 1926 and Marianne is twelve years old. Dropped waisted and smock like dresses were popular in the 1920’s. These are some examples of these type of dresses that an adolescent girl like Marianne would have worn. 

I also liked the pretty floral pattern on this dress worn by young Ella in the new live action movie Cinderella. 

Marianne’s mother dies in this chapter and to her funeral, she would wear something like this. 

The black dress with a white Peter Pan collar and white tight with black maryjanes was inspired by the costume worn by Kelsey Fowler as Young Bonnie in the musical Bonnie and Clyde. 

The grey wool coat and hat were taken from this catilogue page from the 1920’s 

Young Marianne’s final outfit is a simple white night gown. 

Which was taken from this period sewing pattern. 

Stay tuned for more outfits 🙂
