Lisa’s Regency Crossover Dress

By Jennie Chancey


I wore my summer crossover gown to work Wednesday, and my friend kindly took some pictures of me outside. I was surprised when I saw the front view at how modern looking it is – I suppose the fact that I made it shorter has something to do with that, but I didn’t expect it. […]

Girl’s Regency Dress

By Jennie Chancey


I made a beautiful dress for my daughter off your pattern, but still have not gotten around to making mine (though I’m hoping to soon). We have old-time Grange dances here, so I thought it would be really cute to make us matching ones. I made this dress in honor of my daughter’s weaning. She […]

Ceri’s Regency Ballgown

By Jennie Chancey


I’ve been meaning to send you some pictures of my Regency ball gown that a friend and I made way back in September ’05. I chose a satin for the undergown/lining. The over dress is made from a voile from Ikea. I wore the dress to a Hornblower convention in October held in Portsmouth, UK […]

Heidi’s Regency Crossover Gown

This is a Regency dress that I just finished. I used the Sense and Sensibility pattern as a base, and created a crossover bodice. The fabric is a lavender silk chiffon over a white silk habotai. On the back seams I did a some beading. It really makes the back more interesting. This is my […]

Kate’s Marianne Dashwood Gown

By Jennie Chancey


I ordered your Regency Gown pattern some months back to make myself a Marianne Dashwood costume for Halloween. (Big Jane Austen fan here!) I really love the pattern and was extremely satisfied with my results! The only major alteration I made when using the pattern was to drop the neckline lower. I added some adornments, […]
