I launched Sense & Sensibility Patterns in 1998 with my original Regency Gown pattern. I never dreamed I’d one day have over two dozen patterns on the market and would be leading tours yearly in the UK! Enjoy my blog, and let me know if you’d like to travel with us!

Thanks to the lovely ladies at Joyous Homemaking, I was able to teach a live class for the Girls’ Edwardian Apron pattern online and record it. It is now available as a download for $15.95, which includes slide visuals in PDF format and audio in MP3 format. If you don’t have the pattern yet, you’ll need to add that to your cart or purchase the class with ePattern bundled in.

1910s Tea Gown

This 1910s Tea Gown class is six lessons long and is for those who already have a good bit of sewing experience. If you are at an intermediate level (or have completed the Regency Gown Class), you will be able to tackle the Tea Gown. This pattern requires more careful fitting, and if you make the full dress in all its glory, you’ll be creating multiple skirt layers and working with more difficult fabrics, like chiffon or silk.
