When choosing a design for my flowergirls’ dresses, your Girls’ Romantic Dress pattern was perfect – it had the fitted bodice and full skirt I was looking for, without a neckline that belongs on an adult. The only change I had to make was to lengthen the skirts. The green dress also has a waistband, […]
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.)

I absolutely love your site! I bought the Regency era pattern to make my bridesmaid dresses, and loved it so much that I did my wedding dress out of that pattern, too. We bought the Elegant Lady’s Closet pattern as well to get the 3/4 length sleeves. We just used the Regency gown pattern as […]

My niece, Madeleine, got married in July and had asked me to make her and her bridesmaids ‘Jane Austen’ style dresses. It was with great relief that I found your invaluable pattern via the Internet. I changed the under bust gathers to darts on all the dresses, but otherwise I made very few changes to […]
