Regency Gowns at Jane Austen’s House


The gowns above used to be on display in Jane Austen’s house, Chawton, England. Note the beautiful shawl and the draping detail on the bodice at the right. Below is a photo from A&E’s “Emma,” and you can see the same draping detail was used for Jane Fairfax’s ballgown.
