I love the flow and romantic idea behind the Regency. I’m also interested in the Social History of the time. I’ve been doing my homework and I really wanted to make some dresses for church or reenactment if I can get involved with it somehow.  Anyway, I had found these cotton fabrics and just loved […]

I wanted to make some nice dresses for my daughters Ultraviolet (Violet for short, 4yrs) and Millivolt (Millie for short, 2yrs) to wear to my sister Joelle’s wedding. I had drafted a pattern myself for empire waist style jumpers for them in the spring, but I didn’t feel that I had time to work out […]

I made these two dresses from your Regency pattern. It was really a lot of fun to make them and I didn’t have any problems at all. The dark red dress I based off a dress Dolley Madison wore. It was my first time using silk and I love the colors. It’s really a lot […]

I found this lovely dotted voile in my “stash” and just knew it was perfect for the new 1780′s Girls’ Portrait Dress pattern.

After seeing Mama’s Regency dresses, our little girls wanted one of their own. Our girls are not twins but they do love to dress alike, so we selected the matching seersucker fabric with contrasting colors. The completed dresses brought much delight! Christina K Adorable! I really love the contrasting fabric sashes. Thanks so much for […]

Aussie Jane Austen

By Jennie Chancey

I discovered the existence of a Jane Austen Festival in Canberra, Australia, in 2008. After attending the first festival and having a ball–but having to borrow dresses–I decided to give it a crack, despite no sewing experience further than year 8 cushions and bags. I’ve since attended two more festivals and been a useful resource […]
