Lea-anne’s “Picnic at Pemberley” Outfit

By Jennie Chancey

I was attending a “Picnic at Pemberley” event at the Abbey Museum of Art & Archaeology, Qld Australia, so I particularly wanted a dress with the proper period styling. I made my dress in a bit of a hurry and didn’t do a trial fitting first, so the neckline is somewhat higher than I would […]

Naomi’s Edwardian Aprons

By Jennie Chancey

Thank you so much for providing this lovely apron pattern. One day while watching The Masterpiece Theatre’s utterly perfect rendition of “Pollyanna,” I promised myself I would one day find an Edwardian apron pattern similar Nancy’s (the maid). I hunted high and low until I remembered seeing an apron pattern here and, to my great […]

Hello All! That’s not me…that’s my model…okay, she’s my sister, Mirial. Isn’t she cute as a button?! She was so chipper while I did up her hair and made her pose outside, toting her around all over our yard. Her favorite picture to take was the one where she got to hug the tree. I […]

Jana’s Sprigged Lawn Regency Gown

By Jennie Chancey

I made this for funsies. It is off-white sprigged lawn I got on major sale. Yummy. It is actually a re-do. The first time, I made the top 4 sizes too big in the other top option. Rats! >:( I did terrible things to try to make it work, before hanging it in a corner […]

I studied abroad in the UK about two years ago, and recently went back for a visit. As soon as I found out that I would be able to visit Bath and surroundings, I knew I had to create a Regency dress. I love all things Jane Austen and Regency in general, so it had […]

Rachel’s 1909 Edwardian Dress

By Jennie Chancey

I made this dress from the 1909 Edwardian Dress Pattern. I had to modify the shoulder to add more length to it. I also wanted to be able to just slip it on so I cut the back piece 3″ in from the fold and added three rows of cased elastic. I love the gathered […]

Here are two of my latest creations–gowns created from Mrs. Chancey’s lovely pattern! Being as I’ve been in an ‘Edwardian Fashion Craze’ for the last couple of months, I decided to buy the pattern and make the dress for a yearly dance we have at my parish. The dress I wore is the yellow-colored one–my […]

I made this Regency gown for myself using the Simplicity version a few months ago for a Larp event. I am an experienced seamstress, but this was my first Regency era gown, and I loved the lace overlay variant of the pattern. I found some beautiful bridal lace remnants I wanted to use, and a […]

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 […]
