Here are pictures of another dress I made. I thought you might enjoy seeing them. Other than the cranberry crossover, this is my favorite. It’s basically your original Regency gown, but with the neckline cut a little more squarely.

Enjoy! ~ Melissa T.

Note the detachable undersleeves that take this dress from day to evening. Beautiful! A former student of mine, Melissa creates Regency Gowns for sale through her home business, “Stitching the Standard.” You can find Melissa’s offerings through her eBay store!

    I like the squared neckline, and the gathered fan bodice is a simple but very elegant touch!

    Hi, I just wonder how you are attaching the undersleeves?

      Hi, Matilda! Back in the Regency Era, they were basted in by hand. Ladies would unpick the stitching to remove them when they weren’t wanted. But I have instructions in the pattern for creating hidden buttonholes in the sleeeband to button the undersleeves in place. Hope this helps!
