Heather created this gown and bridesmaid’s dress for her daughter’s wedding. I think the bride looks charming, elegant, and relaxed all at the same time. Thanks so much for sharing these, Heather! (In case you didn’t catch them, Heather also shared some earlier photos of her daughter in Regency attire.)

About a year and a half ago, my entire family planned to join my brother and sister for Thanksgiving at their college in Florida. During the trip, my brother, sister, and I were to attend a formal event together. Immediately, of course, my sister and I started dreaming and scheming about what we would wear. […]

Kara’s Darling Girl’s Regency Dress

By Jennie Chancey

I’m an adventurous beginner seamstress. I like to pretend I know what I’m doing — but in reality, I don’t have the faintest clue. I got the regency pattern for me, and made my dress, and I think I attempted to alter it more than my skill would allow — its looks pretty funny. So, […]

Lorna has put together a step-by-step tutorial, showing how she created a pelisse (coat) from my Regency Spencer & Pelisse pattern. It includes excellent photographs and inspiring original images and shows how easy it is to modify my pattern to reproduce an extant garment. Pop on over to Lorna’s blog for all the fun. Thanks, […]

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 […]

I have wanted a regency dress for a long time–especially since the plethora of good Austen movies have been made available! My mother purchased “The Elegant Lady’s Closet” collection for my Christmas present last year, and since then I had wanted to make myself a dress, but lacked an something to motivate me. When we […]

This was a Regency dress I made by playing around with several different patterns I found (one of which was yours). Instead of a button closer in the back I decided to use a drawstring closer and hid part of that by the waistline ribbon. It won first place at the County Fair! Which made […]

I made these two dresses from your Regency pattern. It was really a lot of fun to make them and I didn’t have any problems at all. The dark red dress I based off a dress Dolley Madison wore. It was my first time using silk and I love the colors. It’s really a lot […]

We homeschool using the Well-Trained Mind curriculum, and we just finished reading a children’s adaptation of Pride and Prejudice for literature. (I’m personally a huge fan of Austen, so I’ve been eagerly awaiting this time in school!) After reading the book, we watched the movie, and my girls loved the dresses so much that they […]
