Extant Early Regency Gown

By Jennie Chancey

This is an original gown from the early Regency, accented with a delicate tulle overlay and featuring slim sleeves. Back when I sewed professionally, a customer sent me this photo so I could reproduce the dress, which was a really fun project. I believe the original garment is in the Kyoto Museum collection.

Share the love!

    I absolutely love this gown. I’m going to make a replica of it for my sister and enter it into the Feelin’ Feminine Jane Austen Tour!!!
