I absolutely love your site! I bought the Regency era pattern to make my bridesmaid dresses, and loved it so much that I did my wedding dress out of that pattern, too. We bought the Elegant Lady’s Closet pattern as well to get the 3/4 length sleeves. We just used the Regency gown pattern as […]

My sister and I just finished our first Regency dresses this week, and thought we’d share. Mine (the red one) was made using Jennie Chancey’s original pattern. The only change I made was to gather all the way across the front of the bodice, for a ‘fan’ effect. I also made some piping to edge […]

We got the regency dress pattern last year and Mom made two, which she ended up giving to me. But I finally decided that it was high time to make my own! After searching through my fabric stash for just the right fabric, I pulled out an off-white curtain that I had gotten from a […]

When the opportunity presents itself, I love to help teen girls learn to sew or improve their skills. Last spring I was able to use the S&S Regency pattern with one of those girls. Melinda, like me, loves Jane Austen movies. We struck up a conversation about movies that led to a fun week of […]
