Be your own Elinor Dashwood in this high-quality, historically accurate Regency apron. Whether you are an attendee at an event, a historical reenactor, an actress in theatre, or an avid admirer of Jane Austen's books, this apron will practically keep your dress clean while still retaining Regency fashion accuracy.  Aprons of this style are ubiquitous in fashion plates of the time, which can be viewed here.

When you purchase a made-to-order item, you get the apron 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 apron is one size fits all; however, I will request your underbust measurement and height so that I can hem it to the correct length and place the buttons on the waistband in the correct place.  Within 48 hours of receiving your order, I will send you a measurement worksheet listing the measurements required for a perfect fit. 

The apron features: 

  • 100% cotton or linen fabric
  • shoulder straps that crisscross in the back and button into the back waistband
  • a back tie
  • a slightly gathered skirt
  • a skirt width that comes around each side
  • a skirt hemmed to fall just above the hem of your Regency dress

The apron is shown over a Regency dress, chemise, and undergarments, but none of these items come with this purchase. Because of the adjustability of this apron, it fits over both historical undergarments and modern day undergarments.

A note on fabric choices:

  • white or khaki linen are the most historically accurate choices currently available
  • the cotton prints shown are fun, but not necessarily historically accurate choices

Current fabric choices are shown with inspiration photos to help you visualize the dress in that fabric.  These inspiration photos are either photos of extant dresses or period fashion plates.  They serve ONLY as inspiration and do NOT depict exactly how your dress will be made. Once you order, I will contact you to discuss measurements and confirm exact details.

Feel free to contact us through the "Custom Orders" page if you wish to provide your own fabric or you have a different color in mind than the ones shown.
