Creatively Connecting with Jane Austen

JASNA member Becky Dolin in a Jennyvi Regency Gown
With the help of Jane Austen and fellow Janeites, I am happy to say that the creative beast has been busy sewing for the JASNA AGM (Jane Austen Society of North America Annual General Meeting). After joining JASNA in July, I received a very warm welcome from several members and so I started my journey in "Redesigning the Regency." A fun side project that combines my love of fashion history, Jane Austen and seeing my work alive in the world.

Debuting Our 100% Cashmere Print Scarves

Debuting Our 100% Cashmere Print Scarves

The "Love Birds" print depicts two cranes surrounding a heart shaped wreath of flowers and represents the love between two souls.  My husband and I have been together for over 18 years and in this print, I hope that it will inspire love to anyone who wears it.  I've been very lucky to find love and I hope the same for anyone who is looking for it, whether that be love for another person or love in their art.

If you are wanting your own scarf, you can pre-order them (click on these links "Flying Home Scarf" or "Love Birds Scarf" or the pictures).  If you have any questions, please email me at jennyvi@jennyvi.com.
