I’ve always been enamored with the Regency Period and all things Jane Austen. So, I decided one day that I was going to make some short stays. I drafted the pattern and made them and realized that a proper lady needed clothes to go over them! Your patterns were a blessing to find, and as soon as I downloaded them and put them together, I started sewing (literally, not a minute later) 🙂

I made the cross-over gown first, then the open robe (modified from the cross-over gown bodice) and then the white drawstring gown. It was a pleasure to work with such easily understood patterns and I’ll certainly be making more clothing using them in the future!

Many Thanks, Jennie!


Wow, oh, wow! Isn’t Susanne talented? I love how she modified the crossover gown to create the open robe. Beautiful Regency creations!

    Having finished my first chemise, I am now starting on a drawstring dress. How do you do your flat-felled seams on a dress? With running stitches that you can see on the outside?
    Thanks for answering!

    • Hello, Marlise!

      Yes, flat-felled seams do show on the outside, like topstitching. That is very common for the time period and on into the Victorian era, particularly on underthings. 🙂
