Green Linen Stripe Regency Dress Size 12

A lovely Regency historical dress in a flowing semi-sheer linen/cotton print. Beautiful pattern of pale floral green, white and yellow stripes. Gathered empire waist bodice, flattering 3/4 length sleeves. Skirt fullness gathered to back for a slimming straight skirt front. All seams visible when wearing have been hand-sewn for authenticity and softness.

Great for English country dances, a historical reenactment, or a costume event. Be Elizabeth Bennet for a day!

Bodice fully lined in white cotton. Fastens in back with two drawstrings - at neckline and waist. This fastening method was extremely common in the Regency period.

It is not necessary, but as with all historical garments, I recommend wearing a corset and petticoat for the proper silhouette.

Girls 1860's Historical Dress in Sky Blue Size 10

The perfect dress for your young reenactress! She will be the belle of the ball in this darling ensemble.

Material is 100% cotton print in a lovely sky blue and white/cream floral pattern.

The bodice is a comfortable fan-front pattern. The neckline and waist are finished with tiny piping. Buttons are vintage pearl, and buttonholes are hand-sewn.

Skirt is very full, but is hand-gathered so as not to be bulky. Three cute little half-inch tucks along the hem are both decorative and fuctional. If your child needs extra length in the skirt after a growth spurt, the stitching in the tucks can simply be snipped out, and you will have an additional three inches.

The bodice is lined and the skirt hem is faced with white cotton muslin.

Dress is appropriate and authentic for living history or reenacting for the Civil War era.

Girls 1860's Historical Dress in Pink - Size 2/3

Material is 100% cotton print in a lovely and authentic 'double pink' color. I picked this material especially for historical clothing, because it is almost identical to some original cotton print fabric.

The bodice is a comfortable fan-front pattern. The neckline and waist are finished with tiny piping. Buttons are vintage pearl, and buttonholes are carefully hand-sewn.

Skirt is very full, but is hand-gathered so as not to be bulky. Two cute little half-inch tucks along the hem are both decorative and fuctional. If your child needs extra length in the skirt after a growth spurt, the stitching in the tucks can simply be snipped out, and you will have an additional two inches.

The bodice is lined and the skirt hem is faced with white cotton muslin.

Dress is appropriate and authentic for living history or reenacting for the Civil War era.

Size: 2-3
Waist: 19" - 21"
Skirt Length: 13.5"

Regency Apron Front Dress in Burgundy Cotton Check

A beautiful and historical dress of the Regency time period. A wondefully versatile dress - the long sleeves are detachable, so it works for all seasons! They easily button into the short sleeve lining. Skirt is full gathered into the back and has a slight train.

The bodice is a type called apron front, or drop front. The bodice front lining is separte and pins with straight pins over the bust (pins are included, see last picture) - front gathered panel buttons over this onto matching hand-made covered buttons.

The material is a soft burgundy cotton check. Lined with white cotton muslin.
All visible seams have been meticulously hand sewn for authenticity. Dress has side-front closure with a drawstring at the waist and hook-and-eyes.

I imagine this would be Elinor Dashwood's favorite house dress. Simple, practical, and elegant!

As with all historical garments - I recommend wearing a regency corset for the correct fit.

Bust: 34"-36"
Waist: free
Sleeve length: 24"
Skirt length at center front: 41.5"

Regency Cream Silk White Ruffled Sheer

Wedding Gown Ball Dress

Straight from the closet of Elizabeth Bennet...

Perfectly beautiful and unique for weddings, dances, graduations, historical events, or any special occasion!

Elegant regency dress in a beautiful combination of fine fabrics. The lightly gathered bodice is made up of creamy duponi silk, trimmed with a ruched ruffle around the neckline of sheer white cotton voile. (bodice fully lined with white cotton muslin) The sleeves are gathered, puffed sheer voile with the cream silk repeating on the bands. The under layer of the skirt is silk, and the over layer sheer cotton voile.

Back fastens with hook-and-eyes.

As with all historical garments, this dress is best worn with a regency-era corset or set of stays. The model in the pictures is wearing a pair of short stays which will give the proper silhouette for the Regency period. Modern undergarments will work just fine, though.

All visible seams have been hand-sewn for historical authenticity and softness.

Approx. misses size 6
Bust: 32-33"
High Waistband (just under bust): 27-29"
Natural waist: free
Bodice length center front (including waistband): 6.5"
Skirt Length center front: 41"
Skirt back has 5" train

Note: I do have to mention one very slight fault with the dress. The bodice was originally darted, and then I decided to change it to gathers. So, there is some slight (almost invisible - look at the pictures zoomed in) 'former sewing' marks. Again - these are completely unnoticeable unless you are inspecting the bodice very closely. If you would like to request close-up pictures of this, please do so.
