Jane Austen revisited

Okay, so i got a little Austen itch and I'm going to make another doll - this time a Pride and Prejudice Elizabeth Bennett doll. Soooo, how do I show it's a Pride and Prejudice doll and not a Persuasion or Lady Susan doll... By printing text from the book on the dress, I figure. I've heard tell that you can print fabric in your inkjet printer. I got the necessary freezer paper and did a test run. Here's the results - much more old newsprint than old book. I haven't given up, mind you - but I'm going to try to do ruffled strips of print rather than big blocks of it.

More to come!
