Heidi’s Regency Crossover Gown


This is a Regency dress that I just finished. I used the Sense and Sensibility pattern as a base, and created a crossover bodice. The fabric is a lavender silk chiffon over a white silk habotai. On the back seams I did a some beading. It really makes the back more interesting. This is my sixth Regency dress, and by far my favorite, thank you for letting me share. Thank you so much for all the work you put in to make Sense and Sensibility a wonderful website.
Love, Heidi G.

This is such a breathtaking rendition of a crossover gown! The fine, flowing fabric and the pale color are so evocative of the early Regency, and Heidi certainly has the look of a Regency maiden! Beautiful!

Share the love!

    Is this Heidi’s crossover gown included in the Ladies elegant closet?
    I have the elegant pattern but can’t decide if that crossover dress is
    included. Please let me know. Thanks, Audrey Sollenberger

      Hi, Audrey! Heidi actually took my original Regency Gown pattern and modified it to have a crossover bodice, but the crossover bodice option is included in the Elegant Lady’s Closet pattern. Hope this helps!
