Heidi’s Regency Gown

By Jennie Chancey


Hello there! I wanted to share with you some photos of a dress I made using your Simplicity Pattern 4055. I have worked with several of the Simplicity historical patterns and yours is BY FAR the easiest to work with. It only took me about ten hours (including cutting), and I did not have to tear out a single seam, thanks to the simplicity of your instructions. Other historical patterns I have worked with required hours of headache and re-reading of the directions just to understand the purpose of some of the steps! The only change I made to this pattern was that I kept the overskirt hem even all the way around, in order to allow for the use of the edge of the scalloped lace as a hem. Thanks for making this pattern!

Wonderful work, Heidi! I am so glad you enjoyed the pattern!

Share the love!
