Rebecca’s Regency Ensemble

This is my new Spencer, which I’m wearing with the Regency gown. The Spencer is made of a polished cotton that has a black-on-black floral print. I think it almost passes for a silk taffetta. Almost. I’m especially pleased with the way the pleated frill at the neckline and cuffs turned out. Whenever I watch period dramas, it always seems to me that it’s the little individualistic details that make the best costumes stand out, and I’m determined to be as inventive as I can in my own projects. Read more…

Regency Spencer/Pelisse Pattern

by

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.

Abigail’s Silk Regency Gown with Spencer

by

Abigail's Silk Regency Gown

I made this silk Regency gown 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 hem. I made the Spencer jacket based on the same pattern, using the long sleeves, and the basic bodice pattern, adapted to be a jacket instead of a dress bodice. Read more…
