Cecilia’s Bib-Front Regency Gown


Dear Jennie,

First I want to thank you for having made such a great pattern! I love to work with it, it is so versatile and it fits so well. Here I have changed the Regency Gown into a bib-front gown and added a shirred bib. The ruffle around the hem is shirred with cording.


This is a stunning use of my pattern. I just sat here and drooled for a while as the photos downloaded. I’ve got an online tutorial for making a bib-front version of the Regency Gown, but Cecilia took it up another notch by shirring the front panel. WOW! Simply gorgeous, and thanks for sharing your work, Cecilia!

    Oh, I love what you did to the bib. It gives it such an eye catching look. Love the fabric too.

    Bee-yoo-ti-ful! This is one of my favorite dresses so far. The self-fabric trim is just smashing.

    Your gown is beautiful. The shade of blue is very flattering. I would like to know where you purchased your bonnet – it is darling, and I am looking for one like that to wear with my Regency gowns.

    Yes, you do look like Marianne Dashwood! I love the photographs, especially the one by that stone wall in the field. Would that be Colonel Brandon? :)
    The fabric is so lovely, I always love blues. The bonnet is stunning! Excellent work…
