  1. Rose Williams as Charlotte Heywood ein ep. 07 of Sanditon – somebody (DawnLPike: https://twitter.com/DawnLPike/status/1173331950674878473) on twitter also found her wearing Lizzie Bennet (Jennifer Ehle)’s black spencer throughout episode 4. There are more reused ones on he Beaufort girls which I might get to post later.

  2. Since ‘Lost in Austen’ is about Amanda ‘becoming’ Lizzy, I would guess that this (and other costumes) are reused because they would have been ‘in Lizzy’s wardrobe’ considdering Amanda didn’t take her regency dresses with her.
