Be your own Mary Bennet in a high-quality, historically accurate Regency fichu. 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 fichu will make you feel gorgeously feminine and help you create an accurate Regency fashion look.

A fichu was usually worn during the day to fill in the neckline of the low-necked Regency styles for both warmth and modesty purposes.  This fichu is made-to-order in the style that you choose from the drop down. There are design variations and each variation is based off extant examples that can be found here.  Please note that trims such as lace, braid, etc. will vary slightly depending on stock 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.
