Kimberly’s Regency Gown

By Jennie Chancey

Regency fashion is beautiful and elegant. I have wanted to attempt a dress from that era for ages, but being a novice sewer, I never even considered it. After reading many blogs and visiting this site several times I gave it a go.

The dress is far from perfect, but I am happy with it. I made it using inexpensive material, taking the advice of many. I believe it’s called a muslin. The dress took me four days from start to finish mainly because I was getting familiar with a brand new sewing machine. I hope to make a more dresses. :)

    I would love to make something like this, but wouldn’t know where to start. Any suggestions?

      Hi, Charlotte!

      Kimberly used my original Regency Gown pattern, found under “Regency Era” in the patterns menu up top. If you are new to sewing historical clothing, I also have a class for this pattern under “Classes” above. Hope this helps!
