Hello there! I wanted to share with you some photos of a dress I made using your Simplicity Pattern 4055. I have worked with several of the Simplicity historical patterns and yours is BY FAR the easiest to work with. It only took me about ten hours (including cutting), and I did not have to […]

We got the regency dress pattern last year and Mom made two, which she ended up giving to me. But I finally decided that it was high time to make my own! After searching through my fabric stash for just the right fabric, I pulled out an off-white curtain that I had gotten from a […]

When the opportunity presents itself, I love to help teen girls learn to sew or improve their skills. Last spring I was able to use the S&S Regency pattern with one of those girls. Melinda, like me, loves Jane Austen movies. We struck up a conversation about movies that led to a fun week of […]

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 […]

Here are two pictures of the dress I made while taking your Regency Gown class. The striped fabric is some from my fabric stash, and the burgundy is a poly/cotton blend. Nothing fancy, but fun to experiment with! I am wearing the dress over a Chemise and Short Stays, which I made from your pattern […]

I found out about your site through Katherine’s Dress site, and recently bought your [Regency Gown] pattern. It turned out wonderfully, and I’m really pleased with the pattern I’m a self-taught seamstress, and the pattern was very straight-forward and easy to understand. I didn’t have difficulty with any of it. I used to pattern to […]
