I’ve recently completed my second Regency dress from your pattern and I thought that you might like to add them to your ‘show and tell’ page! I absolutely loved this pattern. It went together very easily for me, and altering it was very easy…not the least bit complicated! My alterations were lengthening the bodice and […]

Your patterns were a delight to use with very clear instructions. I have been sewing for 50 years, since I was 7, and some instructions are incomprehensible, so […]

This bride’s mother worked with her to create her wedding gown. Here are some pictures of the (modified) Regency dress I like what my mom did to the back, because I don’t much like the “balloon” style the dress has with some types of fabric. And of course: no sleeves, which was a blessing when […]

Dear Jennie, Please find the attached photos. I hope you find them of interest. As you can see, we are using the dress as ‘daily’ clothes.
