What the Jane Austen television productions and motion pictures have done for Jane Austen fans is to help them imagine the material world of the Regency Period. The film adaptations have served well and useful in providing a visual reference of the fashion and clothing options that were in play during the Regency Period.
Did you know?
During Jane Austen's time, one simply did not purchase a pair of "left" and "right" footed shoes as this proved cost-prohibitive for manufacturers to do so. Instead, shoemakers produced a single shoe fitting in your foot size to which the owner was then required to "wear down" each shoe through daily use. This would ultimately create a definitive "left" and "right" shoe to wear over time.
