Charity (age 14) cut out and sewed this dress from your Regency Era pattern. She did all the cutting and sewing on her own. The dress is fully lined, and she managed to get the placket nicely done even with that! This was the first dress she has ever cut and sewn every single stitch […]
You have more little ones than I do and not only do you find time to sew, but to design beautiful new patterns. Can you share a little about how you make time to do it all?
This question was recently posted to the S&S Facebook page, and it’s one I get from time to time via email as well. I’ve posted in my FAQs about the “do-it-all” myth, but I thought it might be time to just blog about this topic, since it’s near and dear to my heart.
Dear Mrs Chancey, Thank you so much for your wonderful patterns! Enclosed are photographs of my wedding gown, made with the Titanic Tea Gown pattern, and my sister’s Maid of Honour dress, made with the Elegant Lady’s Closet Wrap Dress. I have always loved Regency fashions as well as those of the early 1900’s. When […]
I’ve always been enamored with the Regency Period and all things Jane Austen. So, I decided one day that I was going to make some short stays. I drafted the pattern and made them and realized that a proper lady needed clothes to go over them! Your patterns were a blessing to find, and as […]
One of my long-time customers and forum members has a lovely sewing blog that she fills with beautiful photos as well as helpful tips and tricks. She has been putting together a Regency Era bodiced petticoat from my instructions and posting detailed photos as she goes.
Katie H. from the Oregon Regency Society has two dresses from the Sense and Sensibility Regency Gown pattern. The first one is an all pale blue dress with a silk chiffon overlay and white lace trim. Her mother, Ruth, adapted the pattern for her and added the extra fullness in the back of the dress. […]
I just love the femininity and comfort of the Regency dress and decided to make one this summer using a bright and breathable, seer-sucker fabric! Christina K. This is so cute, Christina! Thanks so much for sharing your cheery summer dress.
I made this dress from Sense and Sensibility’s Simplicity pattern. I think that the only adaptation I made was to raise the neckline a bit. The material is silk that a friend of mine brought from Thailand for me. I added ribbon trim on the sleeves, braid around the empire waistline, and ribbon around the […]
Hi! I made this dress last week from the Elegant Lady’s Closet Pattern. It was fun to make and felt elegant and comfortable to wear. Now one of my younger sisters wants me to make her a Girl’s Regency dress or Girl’s Georgian Era Dress (when the pattern comes out!). Thanks for designing these lovely […]
Well, I finally finished the dress last week. It’s taken me awhile to get some photos together, since I had to lasso my Mom to be my photgrapher. But I attached some to this email to show you! I know the dress has its various flaws, but for a first-time dress for me, I am […]
