Introducing .... Miss Lydia Bearnet. This mischievous little bear is named for the youngest of the Bennet sisters of Pride and Prejudice fame. Like her name sake she stands out in a crowd with her distinctive green bonnet and matching reticule. Here best picnic dress is in a delicate white with lace edging, it has pink ribbon trims and white rose appliques. Miss Lydia likes to be noticed and needs desperately to be loved!!
Like many young women of her era, she is in search of a ‘respectable young bear of means’ that she can wed. When at Pemberley, she enjoys promenading around the grounds fluttering her fan in a beguiling manner to ensure she is noticed. When she has caught the eye of a prospective husband, she does her best to keep his attention with diverting conversation or participating in an engaging dance or a Game of Graces.
