Here are two of my latest creations–gowns created from Mrs. Chancey’s lovely pattern! Being as I’ve been in an ‘Edwardian Fashion Craze’ for the last couple of months, I decided to buy the pattern and make the dress for a yearly dance we have at my parish. The dress I wore is the yellow-colored one–my [...]

Dear Mrs Chancey, Thank you so much for your wonderful patterns! Enclosed are photographs of my wedding gown, made with the Titanic Tea Gown pattern, and my sister’s Maid of Honour dress, made with the Elegant Lady’s Closet Wrap Dress. I have always loved Regency fashions as well as those of the early 1900′s. When [...]
This class is six lessons long and is for those who already have a good bit of sewing experience. If you are at an intermediate level (or have completed the Regency Gown Class), you will be able to tackle the Tea Gown. This pattern requires more careful fitting, and if you make the full dress in all its glory, you'll be creating multiple skirt layers and working with more difficult fabrics, like chiffon or silk.

My daughter went to her prom Saturday night, in the Titanic-era dress I made from your pattern. It was fabulous. We made an overskirt of forest green satin, while the dress itself was medium green cotton covered with pearl and sequin-embroidered cream illusion. We trimmed it with gold fringe and gold and green baroque trim. [...]
Dear Jennie: Thanks for your wonderful website and beautiful patterns. Last year I purchased the l9l0′s Tea Gown pattern to make a dress for my son’s wedding. After many drafts and trials on bodice pieces, I completed the gown you see in the pictures. Your kind and prompt help by e-mail was invaluable! I appreciated [...]
I made this Edwardian wedding gown for my sister, using your Tea Gown pattern. I added a train using your Regency train instructions and did not add a sheer overlay. We are really happy with how it turned out! This is a wonderful pattern. Very easy to modify and make your own. I have a [...]
It has been a while since I ordered the 1910s Tea Gown from you, but I’ve been steadily working on it since the spring and thought I might share the finished product with you. This dress was a great learning challenge for me in a couple respects. I dyed fabric for the first time, using [...]
