6. The Act II dress of Angelica Schuyler is really intriguing for me...

...I love how it's almost a Regency era version of her 18th century Act I dress, and for some reason I didn't take note of it the first time I saw Hamilton on Broadway, probably because I wasn't as into costuming then as I am now. You'll notice that the dotted fabric on the skirt is the same fabric as what the other Schuyler sisters have, just in the color scheme of Angelica. Eliza's Burn dress (not pictured) has the same fabric, just in pale blue and white. It almost seems the Act I costumes of the Schuyler sisters get all the attention, but their Act II Regency dresses are just as interesting!

7. Either Anastasia's blue or red gowns. I'd love to have a ballroom competition dress made inspired by either one.
