By Jennie Chancey

Subliminally inspired by the Rogers and Hammerstein song, this 1914 Girl’s Easter dress is fashioned in white eyelet with baby blue batiste lining and satin sash. The border eyelet I selected for the project was about 2 yards I had left over from making a smaller sized Girl’s Regency gown. As I had a limited […]

I am rather late in sending these, but I sewed our first Regency dresses for my two sisters and I back in October for our family Christmas picture. I used Mrs. Chancey’s Regency dress pattern which was wonderful and very easy to work with. I love my Regency dress and hope to make another one […]

Sarah’s Romantic Era Gowns

Dear Mrs. Chancey, I just finished a few gowns from your Romantic Dress Pattern for a customer and wanted to send you a few photos of them. They came out so prettily and I was so pleased with the pattern, I think it is my favorite so far from the ones I have used from […]

By Jennie Chancey

My name is Diane and I had my wedding this June. I broke a cardinal rule and made my own dress, out of vintage lace overlaying a duchess satin, which was way over my head, but I managed it anyway. The lace was from Timeless Trims; it was about half of what they hand on […]

I sent a question back during the fall while I was sewing my daughter’s Regency down with removable overlay (she wanted two dresses in one). You asked me to send pictures and, like most homeschool moms, it waited until summer! This is from the Simplicity pattern in silk with a removable lace overlay. We love […]

Ashley's 1909 Edwardian Dress

By Jennie Chancey

Over Christmas while on vacation in Florida, I sewed myself the 1909 Edwardian Dress. The dress is made out of white linen and fully lined with cotton fabric. (This dress is pretty heavy!) The only change I did was to take the zipper out of the back, and made the dress where it can just […]

I wanted to share some photos of a couple of the Regency dresses I’d made from your patterns for my girls. They get no end of compliments on them, thanks in large part to your excellent instructions. I’m a rather inexperienced seamstress, but having started on these patterns has given me the confidence to try […]
