Regency Gown Demi ePattern for 1/2-Scale Mannequins & Dolls

By Jennie Chancey

I have scaled down my ladies’ Regency Era patterns to fit the lovely half-scale display mannequins available from Truly Victorian! The scaled down ladies’ size 12 is a perfect fit for the dressform, and sewing up miniature garments for display is really enjoyable. The pattern also works for half-scale lady dolls.

This demi-ePattern includes all the options in the ladies’ pattern, including short and long sleeves. Thank you to customer Andrea T. for sharing the photos of her gorgeously outfitted doll!
 

ePattern $5.95

    I am new to this website, and came across it through a google search.

    Where did you buy your half scale dress form from? I really would like to buy a black one like this. Could you please e-mail me the website? I have been looking for a 1/2 scale like this for months.

    Mrs. Chancey,

    I was wondering if it was possible to get epatterns of your gowns and scale them down to fit the demi-mannequin. I have one and was wondering if it were possinble to just scale the normal-sized e-patterns down myself (like perhaps shrink them 50% before printing?) and use them on my mannequin?

      Hi, Alexandra! yes, you can print them at 50%. The only difficulty is that each individual sheet in the ePattern shrinks, which means you get 20-35 sheets of paper with the 1/2-scale pieces instead of 5-15. The demi-patterns are already scaled to fit on fewer pages. :)

    Hi! I was wondering where you got the full scale pattern from? I was hoping to actually wear the dress myself. Thanks :)

      Hi, Ali! This pattern is only sized for the 1/2-sized dressform. If you’re looking for the ladies’ Regency Gown pattern, it is available in sizes 6-18, plus an 18-26 supplement. Be sure to check the measurement chart, as pattern sizes aren’t the same as off-the-rack. Thanks!

    Where did you get the doll that is wearing the dress in your photo?

    Thank you.
