More Jane Austen! Marianne Dashwood, the oh-so-romantic heroine of Sense and Sensibility, is my latest doll. She's sculpted in paperclay, jointed at the shoulders and legs. I wanted to print the text from the book on the dress again. After much trial and error (and cursing and pulling of hair) I got it down. Her bonnet is the capote style, popular just at the turn of the nineteenth century. Again, she has little slipper shoes and bloomers with lace under her skirt.
I think Emma and Elinor and Fanny are still calling my name.
