I ordered the Regency Gown pattern in early summer and made a dress for my sister to wear at her bridal shower. It’s a cream-colored underdress with a light, almost see-through overdress, gathered neckline, embroidered in gold. I added details like satin ribbons sparingly, as to not ruin the simplicity of the cut. My sister [...]
This year, my sister Alexandria and I made a Regency ballgown for one of our sisters. We added fan pleating (actually I cheated and just pressed the gathers) and added the crisscrossing on the sleeves (I don’t know if someone actually has a name for that kind of sleeve, I just copied it from a [...]

The two photos on the far right in the center row show the underdress; the rest include the overdress with ribbon trim. The three pictures on the third row show the detailing of the underdress. Stunning ensemble! I ordered [...]
I made my Regency gown from some stretch crushed velvet that I had found at a garage sale. Because of the stretchiness of the fabric, I simply sewed the seams, and then serged them all – which eliminated the need for snipping curves, and reduced alot of bulk where the gathers are in the back [...]

These are the two Regency gowns that my mother made for me. The yellow one was my Recital gown in 2005. The red one was my Christmas dress last year. ~ Elissa P. Sweet!
Genevieve made this lovely Regency ballgown for an event in New Zealand. Yep, they even have my patterns way out in the Pacific!
I made a beautiful dress for my daughter off your pattern, but still have not gotten around to making mine (though I’m hoping to soon). We have old-time Grange dances here, so I thought it would be really cute to make us matching ones. I made this dress in honor of my daughter’s weaning. She [...]
I’ve been meaning to send you some pictures of my Regency ball gown that a friend and I made way back in September ’05. I chose a satin for the undergown/lining. The over dress is made from a voile from Ikea. I wore the dress to a Hornblower convention in October held in Portsmouth, UK [...]
