Hi I wanted to send through some pictures of the dresses I made from your patterns for a role-playing convention over Easter. The team I play in always costumes, and this year we chose the theme Regency, so I searched found and bought your patterns. I found them very easy to make and very fast [...]
Hi Mrs. Chancey, Here are some pictures from the first Regency dress I made! I loved your pattern; it was very easy. I used a cotton fabric with little raised blue dots and a grosgain ribbon for the trim. I love this dress so much that I am already imagining a ballgown for myself! ^_^ [...]

My Seamstress-in-Residence, Geneece Arnold, created this adorable girls’ Regency dress with keyhole sleeves. Geneece is doing fabulous work on everything from play dresses for girls to exquisite wedding gowns. I love this sweet creation!
Hello, Mrs. Chancey. I wanted to let you know how much I’ve enjoyed using your patterns, especially the Regency ones. I just finished a Christmas outfit using the Regency dress pattern (with piping attaching the short sleeve to the undersleeve and a fan front bodice) and the Spencer pattern. I lined both in flannel for [...]
