I am a French primary school teacher living in France who loves Jane Austen’s period. This summer, I found Jennie’s wonderful website surfing on internet. Then, I ordered the Regency Dress pattern and went on with it having in mind to go, once in my life and if my dress is a success, to a […]

I thought you might like to see a few pictures of my finished dress. I did all the outside stitching by hand and the rest by machine. Though I’d thought about adding trim, I was running out of time and decided on the gold sash and gold wired hair ribbon, along with a pearl necklace, […]

Thank you so much for your wonderful patterns and website; my sisters and I have really enjoyed them I made this dress out of a yellow striped seersucker fabric.

Silk dress

I got the itch to make my first Regency gown after watching the A&E ‘Pride & Prejudice’ for the 50 millionth time. I had also just picked up a copy of the Simplicity printing of Sense & Sensibility’s Regency dress pattern. I knew I wanted a silk ballgown, so I started doing some research and […]

My niece, Madeleine, got married in July and had asked me to make her and her bridesmaids ‘Jane Austen’ style dresses. It was with great relief that I found your invaluable pattern via the Internet. I changed the under bust gathers to darts on all the dresses, but otherwise I made very few changes to […]
