Continuity: When Velvet and her mother are sitting and talking in the attic, her mother pours some gold coins into Velvet's lap. Velvet is sitting back on her feet, but a few seconds later, she raises up on her knees to hug her mother. The coins should go spilling everywhere, but we never see or hear them.
Continuity: In the first scene in the schoolhouse, it looks like the youngest girls are sitting in the front row, and the girls get older each row that goes back. (Velvet is in the second row and her sister, who's in her last year of school, is in the back row and the girls in each row apper to be the same age.) But in the scene the following winter - the next school year - Velvet is sitting in the first row.
Continuity: When Velvet and Mi get in the cart to go to Mr. Edes's farm, Velvet is sitting on the left and Mi is sitting on the right. But when we next see the cart, Velvet is on the right and Mi is on the left. They only have the one delivery to make, and it's not established that they have any reason to have gotten out of the cart.
Revealing: When Velvet and Mi and talking to the jockey in the pub, there is a blackboard behind him listing the menu. However, all the writing is backwards. The film negative apparently got flipped, in this print at least, resulting in a reversed image. This is the only scene where reversed lettering is seen.
Plot hole: After The Pie runs away and breaks the delivery cart, Velvet jumps on Miss Ada (the family's cart horse) to chase after him. It seems very convenient that Miss Ada, whose only job is to pull the cart, is standing untied in the yard wearing a riding bridle, just waiting for Velvet to jump on.
