Regency paper dolls

Last week, we took a look at the evolving fashion during Jane Austen’s lifetime. This week, we have a special treat for you. Here are some original paper dolls that showcase some of the typical looks that we envision Austen’s characters wearing. They have been left mostly blank so that you may add your own details and colors before cutting and playing with them. Featured is a man, a woman, a young girl, a young boy, a cat and a pug. Also included are a few accessories from scarves to hats to a teacup to a book. There is even a turban — you can learn to make your own at our turban-making workshop, led by historical costume maker Samantha Bullat. Enjoy!
