Be your own Caroline Bingley in a perfectly tailored, high-quality, historically accurate Regency era evening gown. Whether you are an attendee at an event, a historical reenactor, an actress in theatre, or an avid admirer of Jane Austen's works, this gown will make you feel like you're dressed in the latest fashions with your family's newly acquired wealth!

This v-neck ball gown is based on a French original and would have been high fashion at the time.  Pair this gown with accessories and add-ons to make you feel like the belle of the ball!

When you purchase a made-to-order item, you get the gown of your dreams by choosing the fabric from the drop-down options, providing measurements for a custom fit, and even purchasing extra available add-ons! (Search the website for “add-ons” to see what’s available!)  Contact us through the “Custom Orders” page if you would like to discuss additional fabric and customization options that are not available on this listing.

As a custom piece, this item is professionally handmade at my Texas (USA) studio and order fulfillment takes 10-12 weeks. Please see the website header for a current estimate on the month your order will be shipped to you. Shipping within the U.S. is FREE for all orders over $50.

ALL THE DETAILS

This gown is made-to-order: choose the size that you currently wear in contemporary sizing. Within 48 hours of receiving your order, I will send you a measurement worksheet listing the measurements required for a perfect fit. 

The ball gown includes:

  • a crossover v-neck bodice in both front and back
  • gathered details at the shoulders
  • a back closure with an underbust drawstring and hook and eye
  • underbust gathers
  • short, puffed sleeves with narrow cuffs
  • a skirt that is gathered in back center, but fitted on the sides and front

PLEASE NOTE: In most photos, this gown is shown with an open robe over it, but no open robe is included when you purchase this listing.  To order the open robe, search "Jane's Open Robe" and add it to your cart when checking out.

To achieve the correct historical silhouette, this gown is pictured over a chemise, stays, and petticoat, but no chemise, stays, or petticoat are included with this listing. This gown is made to fit over stays and will not fit correctly over modern undergarments. However, if you would like your commissioned dress to fit over modern undergarments, please send a message, and I will be happy to oblige!

Measure your bust and waist and choose your size based on the pictured sizing guidelines. For the most accurate fit, please take the measurements while wearing your stays and other undergarments (i.e. chemise, petticoat, etc). The dress will be hemmed to sit about about 2" off the floor based on the measurements you provide.

HOW TO MEASURE YOURSELF

Please refer to the measurement graphic in the listing and the video tutorial if you need assistance in understanding and taking your measurements. If you still have additional questions, please feel free to message me.
