I thought we would celebrate the bi-centenary of Jane's Austin's Pride & Prejudice, as everyone else seems to be, and highlight the early 19th century period. Two spencers have been added, one in clear bright yellow which would look well with the organdie raised flower skirt and the lemon slippers, the other of printed cotton. A Poke bonnet and a pair of gloriously light large puffed sleeves, reticules and fichus have also been added. There are quite a few children's dresses imitating women's dress and a couple of early 19th c shawls. Do take time to look in all the sections at new acquisitions.
