Regency Era is Jane Austen’s era!  (Roughly from 1795-1820…where women, girls wore fairly simple, straight dresses & gowns…)

Jane Austen wrote Pride & Prejudice, Sense & Sensibility, Mansfield Park, Persuasion, and other books…Most have been made into popular movies…and are still favorites!

Activity:

Introduce Jane Austen to your daughter.

Make the Regency dress for her favorite doll. You, Daughter and Regency-dressed doll could then watch…the 2004 Pride and Prejudice movie starring Keira Knightley.

Watch for other free patterns, stories, pictures…involving the 3 popular dolls listed above!
