This is my original Regency gown pattern, modeled after the styles of the middle Regency and particularly appropriate for 1810s impressions. If you're new to this time period, this is the pattern I recommend starting with, as it goes together very easily.

Ready to expand your Regency wardrobe? This supplement is the ticket! Designed for use with the original Regency Gown Pattern, the supplement provides options for necklines that will give you four new looks.
Here is a pattern with something for everyone! I took some designs I'd played around with years ago and turned them into a “mega pattern.” All of the pieces are totally correct for the time period and can be mixed and matched to create an entire wardrobe of gowns!
Here are the underpinnings you need to give you the proper Regency foundation! This package includes patterns for a chemise, short stays, and two chemisettes.
I created this pattern by pulling research together from several sources (along with customer requests!). I studied a Spencer jacket in the D.A.R. Museum collection and one at the Valentine. I also drew from Janet Arnold’s wonderful Patterns of Fashion to create a versatile pattern for short jackets, long coats, and sleeveless pelisses or short gowns.
For the finishing touch to your outfit, fingerless gloves meet the protocol of your costume while providing practicality and freedom of fingers for those Jane Austen tea parties and needlework by firelight. Don't let them intimidate you! These “Queen Anne's Lace Gloves,” designed especially for beginners, are very easy and quick to make!
You may not be able to buy a paisley or silk stole, but with a luscious sport-weight alpaca yarn and this PDF pattern, you can make yourself a good substitute! The “Fleur-de-Lis Stole” is luxury itself, with a generous length for the classical Regency drape, and the combination of fleur-de-lis (a popular motif of the time) and a striking edging of fans and tassels.
This is the perfect companion to the women’s pattern above and includes options for short sleeves, long sleeves, and undersleeves. There's also an appendix that gives directions for making a “drawstring” look dress. Now available with sizes 12 and 14!
I created this pattern to work within several different eras and be versatile enough for play and dress-up! Pinafores are perfect over Regency and Romantic Era dresses, and pantaloons make it easy to run and play even in girly clothes.
This pattern is a companion to the ladies' Spencer & Pelisse pattern and will make adorable jackets, long coats, and sleeveless pelisses to go over dresses.
