In response to Jane Austen's Only surviving dress (or so they say), written by Emily on November 19, 1997 at 11:13:44
Friends of mine just returned from England, having toured Jane Austen's house (and videotaped the entire interior, including the dress display). The dresses on display are rotated routinely and are authentic Regency dresses. However, the display placard clearly states that none of the dresses actually belonged to JA. I, too, would love to see what she really wore!
