Ibsen, A Doll's House

Elizabeth stars as Nora in the 1879 feminist Ibsen play, A Doll's House. She's blond and looks Swedish...

Nora: "I have other duties equally sacred ... Duties to myself!"

Elizabeth as Nora looks out and bows to the audience.

Of course, all the audience members clap.

...and she's congratulated by Diana.

The dress was made by Dollies Dressmaker. She created it for the 1970s AG doll Julie, because in 1971 the movie Nicholas and Alexandra was very popular and hence many fashion designers that year drew inspiration for their line up from imperial Russia circa 1900. So I'm probably a couple of decades off fashion-wise. The detail on the dress is very delicate and beautiful. If you see her reproduce the pattern again, you should certainly snatch it.
