I am a French primary school teacher living in France who loves Jane Austen’s period. This summer, I found Jennie’s wonderful website surfing on internet. Then, I ordered the Regency Dress pattern and went on with it having in mind to go, once in my life and if my dress is a success, to a […]

Virginia's Bodiced Petticoat

By Jennie Chancey

I made this out of a beautiful fine weave cotton lawn and actually lined the skirt because I am going to be making a pretty gauzy dress over it, encouraged by your suggestion/mention of this common fashion of the period, which I have always loved when done in period films. I also have plans for […]

I thought you might like to see a few pictures of my finished dress. I did all the outside stitching by hand and the rest by machine. Though I’d thought about adding trim, I was running out of time and decided on the gold sash and gold wired hair ribbon, along with a pearl necklace, […]

It’s basically your original Regency gown, but with the neckline cut a little more squarely. Enjoy! ~ Melissa T. Note the detachable undersleeves that take this dress from day to evening. […]

I bought the Sense and Sensibility patterns for a Regency Gown and the Spencer Jacket (which I turned into a pelisse by following your instructions). My inspiration came from the book Sense and Sensibility by Jane Austen. I could identify myself with Elinor and picked the scene where she goes out for a walk in […]
