Live out your Jane Austen dreams in a perfectly tailored, high-quality, historically accurate Regency era day ensemble. 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 complete ensemble will make you feel like your favorite Austen heroine.

While we most commonly see long, one-piece dresses in Regency era period dramas, short gown and colorful petticoat ensembles are seen in many fashion plates and artist depictions of the era.  This design was especially useful for the working class, as it allowed more economy in fabric and an ability to mix and match pieces. The short gown in this ensemble is based on extant examples (and is the same design as Mary's Day Dress).

As a pattern sample, this is the only Regency ensemble in this size, fabric, and design.  It is available at a reduced price and can ship to you in 3-5 business days. Shipping within the U.S. is FREE for all orders over $50.

This ensemble can also be commissioned in the size and fabric of your choice. Commission pricing for an ensemble like this starts at $385. If you would like to commission it in the size and color of your choice, message me today!

ALL THE DETAILS

This Regency ensemble is a women's size 20W-22W (2X) and is ideal for heights of about 5'4" to 5'6".  It will fit a bust measurement up to 49".

The non-bodiced petticoat features:

  • a 100% cotton sateen in "vanilla shake" color
  • two cotton twill tape drawstrings in the underbust band
  • a back closure where the drawstrings tie shut
  • a skirt that is fitted in the front and full gathered in the back
  • two straps that run up and over the shoulders
  • a bottom skirt width of 80"

The short gown features:

  • a 100% cotton print
  • a fully lined bodice (lined with 100% cotton batiste)
  • a cotton twill drawstring at the underbust and front neckline, to allow for adjustability
  • front closure with three ties (which hide in the full gathers)
  • long sleeves
  • adjustable cuffs with buttons at the wrists

    The MEASUREMENTS are as follows:

    • bust: 52"
    • underbust: adjustable - can get as large as the bust size
    • back nape of neck to hem: 57"
    • sleeve length (underarm to end of sleeve): 21.5"

    PLEASE NOTE: Purchasing this ensemble does NOT include the chemisette.  You can purchase the chemisette separately.

    This ensemble is made to fit over stays and may not fit correctly over modern undergarments.

    HOW TO MEASURE YOURSELF

    Please measure yourself while wearing the stays and other undergarments you plan to wear with the items.  Remember that measurements such as your bust and underbust should be smaller than the ensemble measurements by about an inch, to allow for ease of movement. 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. If you would like it altered to fit your measurements, please message me for alteration pricing, as that will be an additional cost.
