A Jane Austin heroine:



Isn't she such a pretty thing. As most of you know I love Tone Finnanger designs and I have all her books that are translated into English. This is one of the dolls from her latest book called Sew Sunny Homestyle. She has designed the dolls to represent the style of dress worn in Jane Austins time. I adore the Jane Austin novels and I have visited her little house in Chawton and even participated in a cup of tea over the road in Casandra's tea rooms. Out of all the heroines in the novels the one that springs to mind when I look at my doll, is Elizabeth Bennett.
