Live out your Jane Austen dreams in a perfectly tailored, high-quality, historically accurate Regency short gown. Perfect for the history bounding or adding flexibility to your Regency wardrobe, this short gown will make you feel like your favorite Austen heroine.

While we most commonly see long, one-piece dresses in Regency era period dramas, the 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 an extant pattern from Janet Arnold's Patterns of Fashion (and is the same design as Jane's Morning Gown).

As a pattern sample, this is the only Regency short gown 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 short gown  can also be commissioned in the size and fabric of your choice. Commission pricing for an ensemble like this starts at $219. If you would like to commission it in the size and color of your choice, message me today!

    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.
