Jenna’s Regency Drawstring Gown

By Jennie Chancey

Hi!

I made this dress last week from the Elegant Lady’s Closet Pattern. It was fun to make and felt elegant and comfortable to wear.
Now one of my younger sisters wants me to make her a Girl’s Regency dress or Girl’s Georgian Era Dress (when the pattern comes out!). Thanks for designing these lovely patterns!

Jenna

Thank you for sharing your fantastic work, Jenna! This is absolutely wonderful. I really like the cotton print you found. And what a lovely day for photographs!

Share the love!

    Very pretty! I love the fabric, too. The lacy sash really sets the dress off. :)

    Your dress is lovely, Jenna! Well done! I, too, like the fabric you chose and the lace sash adds just the right touch. Enjoy making your sister’s dress. :)

    I think your dress really complements the sweet spirit of the girl who pieced it together.
    I totally enjoy watching your talents bloom.

    Love,

    Are you wearing any stays or petticoat under your gown?
    Great work!

      Hi Philine,
      I am not wearing any stays or a petticoat under my gown. It seemed to work okay without them, but would have been fuller with the petticoat, I think.
