Casey’s Regency Gowns

By Jennie Chancey


Casey made these lovely Regency gowns for her sister. Aren’t they darling? Casey writes,

Hello! I just got some photographs of gowns I made using your Regency gown pattern, and I thought you might like to see them. :-) The first photo is of the first gown I made. My sister had wanted a Jane Austen era dress, since she likes Jane Austen’s books so much, so we bought your pattern. I found your pattern easy to understand and use! The gown was fast to make, and although it was awhile to get it hemmed, my sister was very happy when it was done. I chose to use a ribbon so that it would break up the white and would add a little “dressiness” to the gown. :-) The second photo is of the next gown I made her. We found a wonderful cotton fabric in the home dec area of the fabric store. I knew it would make a wonderful Regency gown, and at $2 a yard, I couldn’t pass it up! :-) It’s hard to see in the photos, but the fabric has a woven stripe in it. I made that gown as a surprise gift, and she likes that one too. I’ve since made a gown from your pattern for myself (which I hope to get photos of soon!), and am planning another. ;-) I really can’t wait until you get your Spencer/pelisse pattern out, as I’d love to make a Spencer for my sister (and one for myself, of course! ;-). Thanks for such a wonderful pattern!

Wow! Thanks for sharing, Casey!

Share the love!
