A few weeks ago I attended the Jane Austen Festival in Canberra, Australia. Some of the dresses were specifically made for the event, but I had a few dresses already as my sisters, a few friends and I regularly have Jane Austen Days in which we dress up, watch a movie, eat Regency food, etc. […]

Last year, my friend and I went to the Pittsburgh JASNA Jane Austen Festival. I already had a day dress (bought online years ago), but wanted an evening dress, as the festival was having a ball. A seamstress friend of mine adapted the Elegant Lady’s Closet pattern (crossover dress, I think) so the bodice resembled […]

I made this dress for the Jane Austen Society annual Spring gala in Chicago. I altered the pattern to button down the front and to have “slashed” upper sleeves. The pattern is so easy to use and easy to alter that it took me no time at all to make. And Regency gowns are so […]

This is a gown I made for a 4-H competition where I received first place! I am also planning on attending a regency ball in the near future. Thank you for this pattern. I absolutely adore it! I have made three other dresses from the regency dress pattern, the only change I made to this […]

Since the very early days of being a Jane Austen fan, I have longed for the opportunity to dress up in a Regency ballgown. I had made myself some Regency day dresses, but not a ballgown… until we were invited to a Regency-themed Christmas ball! I ended up making two gowns: one for me, and […]
