Dear Jennie, Here is the picture of the latest gown I made. I simply love your patterns! This time I used “The Elegant Lady’s Closet” to make a sheer simple cottondress for around 1800. It was so easy and fast to sew (ok, I omitted the lining for being faster and it fits so well […]

I recently made a 1914 tea gown using your pattern. I made this to attend a “Picnic at Hanging Rock” event and people wore 1900s costumes to attend. I also used your pattern to make an Edwardian apron to wear to protect the tea gown while helping out the BBQ. I also include pictures of […]

I love the flow and romantic idea behind the Regency. I’m also interested in the Social History of the time. I’ve been doing my homework and I really wanted to make some dresses for church or reenactment if I can get involved with it somehow.  Anyway, I had found these cotton fabrics and just loved […]

This Regency gown was inspired by the Alice in Wonderland story and also by Tim Burton’s signature director style and mood. Thus the black and white stripes came into play. The gown is created with a lovely white embroidered cotton fabric that is fully lined and accented with a black and white striped cotton. I […]

Dear Jennie, This is my favorite Regency-era dress to date. It’s your cross-over dress, that Geneece Arnold made up for me last year, but…over the winter I lost 20 pounds and it no longer fit (so sorry, Geneece!), and so I had to rework the whole thing, taking almost all of it apart and handsewing […]

Regency Spencer/Pelisse Pattern

By Jennie Chancey

I created this pattern by pulling research together from several sources (along with customer requests!). I studied a Spencer jacket in the D.A.R. Museum collection and one at the Valentine. I also drew from Janet Arnold’s wonderful Patterns of Fashion to create a versatile pattern for short jackets, long coats, and sleeveless pelisses or short gowns.
