I just love the femininity and comfort of the Regency dress and decided to make one this summer using a bright and breathable, seer-sucker fabric! Christina K. This is so cute, Christina! Thanks so much for sharing your cheery summer dress.

I made this dress from Sense and Sensibility’s Simplicity pattern. I think that the only adaptation I made was to raise the neckline a bit. The material is silk that a friend of mine brought from Thailand for me. I added ribbon trim on the sleeves, braid around the empire waistline, and ribbon around the [...]
Hi! I made this dress last week from the Elegant Lady’s Closet Pattern. It was fun to make and felt elegant and comfortable to wear. Now one of my younger sisters wants me to make her a Girl’s Regency dress or Girl’s Georgian Era Dress (when the pattern comes out!). Thanks for designing these lovely [...]
I bought the pattern for the Girl’s Regency Dress a few years ago, intending to make it for my daughter. I had never sewn a dress before, but since it was labeled for a beginner, I thought I would give it a try. Well, it took me three years to get started, and, fortunately, my [...]

I am thirteen, the oldest of six children, and I have four younger sisters. They absolutely adore my dress, and are waiting for me to make them a dress also. Here are pictures of my finished dress.
Using your Elegant Ladies’ Closet and Underthings patterns, I made this dress for our school’s district-wide Pioneer Day. Pioneer Day has been going on here in Delaware Co., Ohio, for over 30 years for all the 3rd-graders. Delaware, Ohio was established as a town in 1815, bringing many East Coast pioneers to the region. Thus, [...]
One of my customers purchased this gown at auction a few years ago and sent me detailed photographs so I could study the drawstring closure and short sleeve/undersleeve combination. I didn’t end up making the drawstring bodice in my Elegant Lady’s Closet as gathered as this one, but I absolutely love this look. You’ll note [...]
Hi Jennie, I just wanted to write to you to show you the dresses that came out of our costuming operation for the last show we worked on. My co-costumer Alyssa J. made both a dress from the Elegant Lady’s Closet and the draw-string neckline gown. I have to say, during the run of this [...]
