What a Novel IdeaSmall talk can be so boring. What’s the weather been up to? How’s work? Do you think that paint that we’re watching on the wall is dry yet? It’s time we went back to a time when making conversation was an art. A time when you couldn’t quite come out with your true opinions but you could certainly waltz around any subject you liked for an hour or two in the drawing room. A time that Jane Austen was a master at crafting stories around human interactions!Details & Design Want to look right at home strolling through an English garden while contemplating a new composition for your novel? Our exclusive Jane Austen costume will make you feel like a turn-of-the-century novelist in an instant. This costume includes a long dress cinched with a pink ribbon at the waist. It has a square neckline and a sheer sleeve. It can be worn with or without the cropped jacket with its gorgeous puffed sleeves with pleats and buttons down the front. The whole ensemble is topped with a beautiful blue bonnet that’s accented with a thick shiny ribbon that fastens in a bow under the chin, we’ll call that Jane’s thinking cap. Ladies and GentlemenThe turn of the century was a time of Pride & Prejudice, Sense and Sensibility, and so many other novels with perfectly quotable moments. And don’t get us wrong, we know that Jane broke the mold chapter by chapter. Being an author wasn’t an extremely ladylike profession. In fact, no profession was ladylike. But at the same time, she brought the lady’s lifestyle into open-air for common people to read. In fact, thanks to her gentle turn of phrase, we can still imagine that ladylike lifestyle when we curl up with one of Miss Austen’s legendary books. It’s time to get your quote on with a costume that pays tribute to Jane Austen’s lovely wit.
