Poll Results

Because I am on vacation this week and, therefore, away from my sewing work, I decided to put up a poll on which is your favorite Jane Austen novel. The answers were very much as I had expected them to be!! :-)

9 people (26%) voted Pride and Prejudice. (I knew this one would win over the rest. ;-) )
8 people (23%) voted Sense and Sensibility. (Good choice. :-) )
3 people (8%) voted Mansfield Park. (Shocking!)
4 people (11%) voted Northanger Abbey. (Myself included.)
4 people (11%) voted Emma. (Only four!?!?)
6 people (17%) voted Persuasion. (And I understand why! :-) )

Now, since Pride and Prejudice won as the most beloved Jane Austen novel among my readers, I am putting up a new poll.

Which is your favorite film adaption of Pride and Prejudice? (This does not include spin-offs or any adaptions about which I do not know!)

Scroll down the sidebar and you will see two more polls:

Who is your favorite presentation of Elizabeth Bennett?


....and....

Who is your favorite presentation of Mr. Darcy?



My answers are all in favor of the '95 Pride and Prejudice, though, I admit, I do like the actor for the 2005 P&P's Mr. Darcy, especially after seeing him in Little Dorrit!!

That's a hard one ... My favorite Elizabeth is from 1980 - but my favorite Mr. Darcy comes from either the 1995 or the 2005 version ... I think I'll vote 1980 though - that is my favorite adaptation accuracy and modesty wise - though the 1995 would be my second pick! :D

To the KING be all the glory!

Okay, you gotta HELP me!! =S My computer filter is blocking me from joining the Sensibility forum, and so you're my next "plan of attack". I'm trying to make the Beatrix Potter blouse, and something is SO wrong. =S It all started when I did pintucks down the front (like the pic. on the site where you buy the pattern), and now it's choking me, I can't get the coller on because it all puckers and pulls in WEIRD places, and I'm pretty much stuck until you e-mail me.... pweeeeeze?? ;) Like, SOON!! ;) Thanks..

Hugs,
Toria

Toria,
I have not worked with pintucks yet so I am not sure how to help you, but I can post a question on the forum if you want, or on here, as I am sure some people could probably help you out there! :-)

Bummer. Anyhow, I finished it. It's just short the collar because it wouldn't work right with the pintuck, but it looks okay...I'll have to try it again and follow the whole of the directions instead of doing my own thing?? lol!!

Hugs!

Ok, I have to disagree on the P&P 1995! I LOVE the one with Keira Knightley! As I do like Mr. Darcy in the 2005 version as well. I think Keira KNightley can fit into any time period (not many can!)
