My Twinn "Mallory" as "Emma Woodhouse"

I bought this doll a couple of years ago because she reminded me of Jane Austen’s Emma Woodhouse, right down to her “true hazel” eyes!  I finally got around to sewing a dress for her to model.  I used a heavily modified Morrissey pattern and a vintage floral chintz cotton print.  I added a tiny metal cross to a jump ring and ran a length of organdy ribbon through and tied a bow at the back of her neck for a quick Regency style necklace.
