Dear Jennie,

First I want to thank you for having made such a great pattern! I love to work with it, it is so versatile and it fits so well. Here I have changed the Regency Gown into a bib-front gown and added a shirred bib. The ruffle around the hem is shirred with cording.


This is a stunning use of my pattern. I just sat here and drooled for a while as the photos downloaded. I’ve got an online tutorial for making a bib-front version of the Regency Gown, but Cecilia took it up another notch by shirring the front panel. WOW! Simply gorgeous, and thanks for sharing your work, Cecilia!

  1. Your gown is beautiful. The shade of blue is very flattering. I would like to know where you purchased your bonnet – it is darling, and I am looking for one like that to wear with my Regency gowns.

  2. Yes, you do look like Marianne Dashwood! I love the photographs, especially the one by that stone wall in the field. Would that be Colonel Brandon? šŸ™‚
    The fabric is so lovely, I always love blues. The bonnet is stunning! Excellent work…
