  It’s been a while since I emailed you, but it was because the rest of the sewing went great & I didn’t need any more help. I was pretty excited to share with you some pictures of our family at the dance last Friday. I also followed your instructions to fix my daughter’s hair […] Read more…

  Dear Jennie, Thank you for the kind feedback. I enjoyed making the gown. If you ever run into anyone who needs a gown and wants to travel to Santa Barbara, I’d might be happy to ‘knock a gown out’ for them! I was a tailor/seamtress in college, and though now a dentist, I still […] Read more…

Catherine Morland outfit front view 2

I just completed a regency ensemble for Bell Armoire magazine’s ‘Becoming Jane.’ I used several of Jennie’s patterns along with the Janet Arnold book [Ed. note: the open robe comes from the gridded pattern in Janet Arnold’s Patterns of Fashion I]. I was creating an outfit for Catherine Morland, of Northanger Abbey, for a call-for-entries in Belle Armoire magazine. Read more…

  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. I really enjoyed working with this pattern. The instructions where very well written, and I found it even easier to make than the regency […] Read more…

Girls’ Regency Ensembles

  I simply love all of the Sense and Sensibility patterns, especially because I am permitted to use them professionally. When a friend commissioned me to make a dress for her little girl, I knew exactly where to find the perfect pattern. Her description of the ‘dream outfit’ fit the Regency dress and pelisse closely, […] Read more…

Loral’s Tween Regency Dress

I had ordered the pattern awhile ago and got some excellent advice on the board about which size to order for my quickly growing 11yo dd. She’s growing so fast that she outgrew the muslin I started working on for her to wear to a bridal shower. Three days before the shower I had to […] Read more…
