Dear Mrs Chancey, Thank you so much for your wonderful patterns! Enclosed are photographs of my wedding gown, made with the Titanic Tea Gown pattern, and my sister’s Maid of Honour dress, made with the Elegant Lady’s Closet Wrap Dress.

I’ve always been enamored with the Regency Period and all things Jane Austen. So, I decided one day that I was going to make some short stays. I drafted the pattern and made them and realized that a proper lady needed clothes to go over them! Your patterns were a blessing to find, and as […]

Katie H. from the Oregon Regency Society has two dresses from the Sense and Sensibility Regency Gown pattern. The first one is an all pale blue dress with a silk chiffon overlay and white lace trim.

I made this dress from Sense and Sensibility’s Simplicity pattern. I think that the only adaptation I made was to raise the neckline a bit. The material is silk that a friend of mine brought from Thailand for me. I added ribbon trim on the sleeves, braid around the empire waistline, and ribbon around the […]

I bought the pattern for the Girl’s Regency Dress a few years ago, intending to make it for my daughter. I had never sewn a dress before, but since it was labeled for a beginner, I thought I would give it a try. Well, it took me three years to get started, and, fortunately, my […]

A few weeks ago I made youngest daughters each two dresses from Jennie Chancey’s Romantic Girls’ Dress. I have made this pattern a couple times before. Sensibility patterns are very easy to follow. So I whipped up these dresses in a few days, but I never posted them. So here they are. Dresses made from […]
