Extant Regency Gowns

By Jennie Chancey


Rolled Muslin Dress Real Regency Evening Gown Sleeve 1795 Dress

Here is a group of Regency gowns featured in Jane Ashelford’s Book, The Art of Dress. Note the crossover bodice of the early 1800s day dress, the fantastic details of the sleeve embroidery on the 1810 evening gown and the full skirt back of the 1795 day dress. It’s nice to be able to see the actual colors, too. Dispels the myth of pastels and drab colors!
